Ashley Judd Says She Will Be Pressing Charges On Fans Who Sexually Harassed Her On Twitter

Ashley Judd speaks on TV.

Sunday, Kentucky superfan Ashley Judd, who was clearly emotional during what was a rough SEC Tournament title game, tweeted during the second half that the Arkansas Razorbacks were playing "dirty" against her Wildcats. Unfortunately, in response, Judd claims she was both called inappropriate names and threatened with sexual violence by a number of users. She tweeted her frustration afterwards, and showed her followers an example.

Monday, Judd, who has written in her memoirs about being a sexual abuse survivor, told MSNBC that she'll be pressing charges on the users who sent her the tweets. She joined Thomas Roberts to talk about Kentucky's chances in the NCAA Tournament and eventually got to the topic of social media. Start the video around 4:35 if you're just looking for that portion.

Judd made no mention of how many Twitter users she'd be pressing charges against. Hopefully this makes people think twice before tweeting offensive messages at celebrities - or anyone else.
