Earlier today, Federalist senior contributor Bethany Mandel wrote a piece for the Forward about nasty alt-right anti-Semites targeting Ben Shapiro’s 24-year-old sister Abigail for online abuse:

In addition to hateful comments on all her YouTube videos and from her website, stories about Abigail Shapiro appeared on “alt-right” websites like the Daily Heathen, with headlines like “Ben Shapiro Now Using His Sister’s Khazar Milkers to Bring All the Goys to the Yard.” The comments on her YouTube channel became so graphic and so vile, she was forced to turn them off.
“The members of the ‘alt-right’ who are doing this have absolutely no shame,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL, told me. “The disgusting anti-Semitic attacks and harassment of Ben Shapiro’s sister on her professional YouTube channel is an example of how low these haters will go to attempt to intimidate Jewish journalists and their families.”
Ben Shapiro was similarly disgusted. “My sister doesn’t deserve this,” he told me. “Enough.”
Shapiro is right: Enough.
This is so wrong. These people are scum. https://t.co/JzcqmAYrju

This is horrifying. Literally all she's done is be Ben's sister and she's treated like this. I'm furious. https://t.co/TTNx3s3Jcv

Abigail certainly didn’t ask for any of this, and she deserves none of it. But for what it’s worth, she’s got Jenna Jameson in her corner:

Jameson’s taking some flack for praising the Shapiros:

Is that a porn star taking up for one of God's chosen people? One of the arguments the alt right makes is that Jews run the smut industry.

But she’s got some pretty thick skin of her own. And, like Ben Shapiro, she’s more than willing to put it on the line to fight the scourge of anti-Semitism. Good for her. And best of luck to Abigail.
Ben and Abigail are stronger than that.
