Sophia Bush isn’t staying silent any longer.
The Chicago P.D. actress took to Instagram Tuesday night, Sept. 29, to put her online stalker on blast — and what this person has done to her and her fans is incredibly frightening.
After explaining she’s been “harassed to the point of sheer horror,” she explained the accompanying photograph (see below) is a sampling of more than 500 screenshots she has taken over the last three months.
“This kind of behavior does. Not. Fly. You do not have permission to hide. Not anymore: This has gotten beyond out of hand. Obsessive. Violent. And legally punishable,” she shares, before she revealed the username to her more than one million followers, “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.”
Sophia says she contacted the law enforcement, who claimed to be on the case and told her just to ignore the bully, but decided it was time to act when the stalker didn't stop.
“...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 detailing how? Nope. No silence," she says. "As the evidence of staking (sic) and harassment mounts, so does my anger. Because this is grotesque.”
Along with anger, the 32-year-old One Tree Hill alum also admits she feels sadness for the person.
“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.”
She signs off begging the individual to seek the help he/she needs.
“Please start spending it in therapy and learn to love yourself. You deserve it,” she concludes. “And because none of us deserve one more moment of your bullying bulls**t.”
