Ashley Judd To Press Charges Against Twitter Users Behind Personal Threats

Ashley Judd is getting serious after some Twitter users reacted angrily to messages she posted during a University of Kentucky basketball game.

Judd has since deleted her comments but says that doesn't mean the reaction she got was justified.

"If I were in a more calm state of mind, I might have phrased differently," she told NBC News. "I might have said, 'I feel really disappointed with what seems like ultra-aggressive play. Instead, what I wrote was, 'I think Arkansas is playing dirty."

Judd received messages that included "go suck on Cal's two inch d--k ye B-tch wh-re."

"When when I express a stout opinion during March Madness I am called a whore, c---, threatened with sexual violence," she said. "Not okay."

"Everyone needs to take personal responsibility for what they write and not allowing this misinterpretation and shaming culture to persist. And by the way I'm pressing charges."

"The amount of gender violence that I experience is absolutely extraordinary," she explained. "And a significant part of my day today will be spent filing police reports at home about gender violence directed at me on social media."
