Laurie Penny trolled over new book

Feminist author Laurie Penny has come out yesterday against those who during the weekend took to the internet to troll and abuse her.

In a post on her infamous blog Penny Red, Laurie described how her Twitter was inundated with “rape fantasies and pictures of dead children (…) coming faster than I could block individual users.”

Others took to book-selling website Amazon to share “vile sexist and scatological language” under the reviews section of her new book Unspeakable Things.

The author said that “criticism is one thing” but she was not going to take any more of “this bullshit.”

She urged readers to buy the book and help her fight back against the trolls and misogynist attacks.
