Sophia Bush is a target of an online stalker, and she can't take it anymore.
Turning to her Instagram, the 32-year-old actor shed light on her horrifying situation and to address the stalker directly today.
Sophia posted a collage of the comments from her online harasser and then proceeds to explain the situation saying:
"This has gotten beyond out of hand. Obsessive. Violent. And legally punishable. To any of you who've been targeted by @SophhiaBush, I'm so sorry. I'm sure he/she will be blocked again soon, only to create another account. We're close to 20 now. And law enforcement says 'we're on it,' and 'don't acknowledge this person,' but when this person, this vitriolic perverse monster is targeting all of you? Threatening rape, gang rape, & throat slitting to name a few? Impersonating me and breaking some of your hearts? Telling people they should kill themselves, and illustrating how? Nope. No silence."
She further expresses her feelings and questions the stalker's motives:
"As the evidence of staking and harassment mounts, so does my anger. Because this is grotesque. And on the other side, my sadness mounts as well. What happened to you, you poor lost soul, that this is how you find pleasure? That you need to attempt to destroy little bits of other people to build yourself up, bit by bit? Who in your life hurt you? Who made you need to act out like this? Because my god I feel so sorry for you."
At the end of it all, she wants the Twitter user to seek help:
"But my sorrow in the face of your pain is no match for my anger at the pain you are causing others. You do not have the right to spread poison because you have felt poisoned. It's a small minded and ugly path to take. Choosing to inflict pain doesn't make you strong or powerful. It only proves your weakness and self-loathing. All the time you're taking to verbally harass us, threaten physical assault, and terrorize strangers? Please start spending it in therapy and learn to love yourself. You deserve it. And because none of us deserve one more moment of your bullying bullsh**."
She finished the statement with hashtags, "#gethelp #bullyingisugly #violenceisntfunny #thereisabetterway."
