Judging from a recent anti-bully re-tweet on Thursday, and many more just like them, Kate Gosselin appears to be largely focused on her online critics, using Twitter as her choice weapon to try to battle her adversaries.
While Kate's tweets typically consist of a run-down of her daily errands and cookie baking, more often Kate uses Twitter to re-tweet compliments and accolades from fans, many of whom have taken on roles of shutting down her critics. Kate often refers to her critics as "bullies".
On Thursday, Kate re-tweeted a tweet from Dr. Lynda Shaw which read, "Celebrities face adult #bullying It’s never ok to bully."
Kate followed up the tweet with, "YES! LET'S END IT!"
The tweet had a link to an Us Magazine article from February in which Kate opens up about being bullied while she was in school and laments her claim that the bullying has continued now that she's a public figure.
Kate told Us, "But the bullying didn't stop there for me and with a quick sweep of the Internet, it's clear that this epidemic is alive and well like a disease with no cure!"
Bullyville, an online aggregate for bullying victims, has appeared to take a shine to Kate Gosselin's plight to extinguish her haters. Kate calls the organization, who was accused of unfairly exposing Kate's critics names and "outing" them last month, her "defender".
Kate was also accused of using young hackers who were allegedly minors to infiltrate her hater's accounts last month and publish personal, identifying information of them -- an accusation she chose not to respond to.
In the last six months, Kate has made approximately 20 references to her haters and gone on to praise what she has tweeted as her "steadfast supporters".
What do you think? Does Kate spend too much time focusing on people who criticize her on the net? Does she have a right to go after them?
