- Sherri Shepherd is filing charges against a Twitter follower who threatenned to rape her. "Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you," tweeted @DaCloneKiller. Shepherd didn't take the threat lightly and immediately filed a police report against the person. "This is a threat and I'm pissed," she tweeted back. "You think I should be raped in a back alley? Let's see if the police agree with you and I took a pic of your tweet. And so help me God, when I find out where you live charges will follow." Yesterday the diva kept her word and filed a police report for what she deemed as cyber bullying. "This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves because there's no consequences for the bully(s)." [Bossip]
