A war between pro- and anti-Kate camps has been raging on Twitter, but now it’s gone nuclear as the group @Bullyville named what they claim is Kate’s stalker, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
And that stalker, they claim, is a senior citizen -- a 62-year-old woman! (Radar is not naming that person or giving out her Twitter account.)
Bullyville posted a screen grab on Monday of a tweet apparently sent to Kate from a different person than the 62-year-old woman and containing what appears to be a chilling threat plus profane, abusive language.
The tweet was sent to the mom of 8 on her birthday and read “happy bday o a GRIFTING, stealing, lying child & animal abusing (censored) (censored). Hope u choke on ur birthday cake. REMEMBER SELENA.”
Selena, the superstar singer, was murdered by the president of her fan club.
On Sunday, Bullyville announced that it was taking action against the Kate haters who it believed had crossed the line, with this tweet: “We’re launching #opkatehate effective tomorrow. These bullies have collectively pissed off the hive, it’s too late to #expectus.”
The site followed with “we now know where all of @kateplusmy8 bullies work. Employers sure don’t seem to like negative media attention.”
Those tweets took the battle over Kate to a new, even more fierce level, with her detractors – and some apparent onlookers – turning up the heat on the conversation.
One person wrote about Kate and Bullyville: “She's still a documented child abuser..makes no sense they would align themselves with her.”
Kate was accused of child abuse by Robert Hoffman, a pal of Jon Gosselin, who wrote an e-book documenting boorish behavior by Kate, who admits she has spanked her children with a wooden spoon.
Hoffman told RadarOnline.com previously that he called the Department of Children’s Services on Kate and launched a complaint.
One anti-Kate person remarked about the newly named Kate basher, “Maybe the old lady should actually be KILLED…what do you think?” (The tweet was later deleted.)
The person named as Kate’s ‘stalker’ allegedly sent 74,000 anti-Kate tweets. (UPDATE: The person has tweeted more than 74,000 times and thousands are about Kate, but not all of the tweets are connected to Kate.)
One of Kate supporters begged everyone on Twitter to leave her alone and said: “kate is scared and would like you to stop harassing her. how about you do that? walk away?”
But that logic did not resonate and drew this response from one of the many people suddenly in the battle: “Tell Kate to call the police & complain that she sent ppl to kill me but I'm refusing to die.”
(For the record, Kate did not send people to kill anyone.)
As the war rages, Kate has remained silent about it Monday, but she’s practically the only one. The anti-Kate camp is furious about Bullyville’s actions, and Bullyville is committed to exposing people who hide behind anonymity to cross the line into bullying, fron their point of view.
