Whoa! Someone needs to chill out!
Generally speaking, the internet is a wonderful place where cats play keyboards, people have good natured batfights and opinionated morons can become famous.
However, Jack Wilshere probably isn’t sharing our enthusiasm for this big ol’ network of computers, as some vicious anonymous commenters have been using it to threaten his ladyfriend. The Daily Star done a story what sez:
FOOTBALL ace Jack Wilshere has called in police after a jealous female “fan” threatened to murder his girlfriend.[…] devoted fans have posted page after page of messages on internet sites.
But when pictures of his girlfriend – named online as Lauren Neal – were posted, so were threatening and spiteful messages.
On one site, a jealous girl calling herself “xCupCakes” wrote: “gah, lets kill her please?”
Another said: “She’s not good enough for him”, while one claimed she looked “like a boy”.
‘xCupCakesx’ strikes us as a misguided teenage Jack Wilshere fan, rather than a muderous psychopath, but nevertheless Hertfordshire police have “taken the threat very seriously”.
