Sherri Shepherd fell knee deep into a barrage of cyber bullying today, from simple name calling to death threats, and the actress has plans of filing a police report to make sure that at least one of her tormentors faces consequences for their actions.

The sequence of events was documented in real time via the actress' Twitter account. It all started just a couple of hours ago when Shepherd retweeted a message from @DaCloneKiller who wrote that "somebody should drag [Shepherd] in a back alley and rape [her]."

Shepherd responded with a tweet of her own, writing, "I am going 2 file a police report 4U threatening me. And so help me God, when I find out where U live, charges will follow."

This compelled the TV personality to use the hateful message to exemplify the importance of the anti-bullying movement in America, writing, "This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there's no consequences for the bully(s)."

While the message was well-received by some, others added to the antagonistic spirit of the first tweeter, as one follower told Shepherd, "I HOPE YOU DIE OF DIABETES."

Shepherd last tweeted about an hour ago, writing, "On my way to the police station ... will let you know what they say when I get back."
