Directed at her were tweets expressing their displeasure... "you are an absolutely disgusting human being." There were dozens such tweets, however the most emotional came from bombing victims themselves... Celeste Corcoran posted this comment, "You should be ashamed, my mother lost both her legs and I almost died in the marathon. You need a filter."
Such comments are to be expected when dealing with such insensitivity, however people from the Twitterverse took it to the next level as Ms. Lynch began receiving death threats. People began to search through her timeline both on Twitter and Facebook... they found a picture of her license with her address and reposted it for the world to see, they got the address of her parents who also began receiving death threats. Ms. Lynch disabled her social media for a short period of time, but reactivated in an effort to plead with the public to at least leave her parents alone...
"I have been fired from my job. I am paying for what I thought was a simple joke. I know it was wrong now. I wasn't thinking."
"Plz stop with the death threats towards my parents. They did nothing wrong. I was the one in the wrong and I am paying for being insensitive."
"Please stop spreading around my parents number, and my home address. THEY DID NOTHING WRONG."
