According to Gawker.com, earlier this week, a funny video went viral of 11-year-old Jessi Slaughter (AKA Kerligirl13) crying while her dad yelled at the people trolling her on the Internet. It’s not so funny now that she’s been placed under police protection.
More than 1.7 million people have seen the foul-mouthed Floridan’s breakdown and laughed at her dad’s luddite rage. But the video, “You Dun Goofed Up,” wasn’t the only thing to go viral: Jessi Slaughter’s real name, address and phone number was distributed widely via Internet pranksters 4chan.org, Tumblr and other online backchannels.
According to Leonhardt, some of those phone calls have been death threats, and the local sheriff’s department has launched a criminal investigation into the video. Jessi was placed under police protection and brought to a safe house soon after it went viral. She came home today, but she’s not online: A court order has barred her from using the Internet for at least three days.
Below is the video that started all the trouble. They should have banned her from using the internet for the rest of the year. They should also look into getting her better parents, and then wash her mouth out with soap.
Internet 1 Jessi 0.
