Sherri Shepherd, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” received a nasty tweet advocating that she be raped. She didn’t take the threat lightly — and let her Twitter followers know that she was filing a police report. She’s right about bullies. If there are no consequences, it’s simply a recipe for more bullying. And as Twitchy has been reporting, such sexism and online harassment have gotten way, way out of control.

Haters still hating:

Perhaps Shepherd can convince her colleagues to put a spotlight on social-media abusers. It’s becoming a hot topic on Capitol Hill, you know.
