11-year-old cyberstalking victim @JessiiSlaughter got her 7 minutes of fame—true fame, not e-fame—on today’s “Good Morning America.”  But GMA’s own viewers didn’t have much sympathy for Jessi, with the overwhelming majority of them criticizing Jessi in the comments to ABC’s online version of the story.

Most commenters placed the blame squarely on Jessi and her parents, with more than a handful of them expressing outrage that the broadcast’s hosts blamed rap music for Jessi’s foul and violent language.

Interesting to note that neither the Slaughters nor GMA mention 4Chan, where the campaign of harassment against the Slaughters began, nor StickyDrama, where a MyDrama author posted screencaps of Jessi boasting of her relationship with Blood on the Dance Floor lead singer Dahvie Vanity. (In fact, Jessi is still following us on her Twitter.) Also interesting to note that ABC brought Internet Safety expert Parry Aftab into the fray.  Our readers will recall that Ms. Aftab also commented on John Hock’s 2009 sex assault, in which the so-called expert confused Stickam and StickyDrama.  StickyDrama asked Ms. Aftab how we could make our site safer back then, but we never heard back from her.  A former Stickam employee familiar with Ms. Aftab explained:  “She only advises you in internet safety if you pay her an ‘honorarium,’ a donation.  It’s her racket.”

  1. when i was 11 i still watching spongebob and doing home work at school i didnt even know what the hell the internet was . i read books an played out side …

  2. Ummm the use of Glock being attributed to Rap music . . . . . Yup back in the 90’s when she wasn’t even alive. I hear glock being referred too more on a episode of COPS, which are repeats from the 90’s. He needs his face slapped.

  3. This is ridiculous.
    When I was 11 I didn’t dress like her, I didn’t wear make-up unless it was for important events, I most definitely did not use language like her. She needs help. I’m not the least bit surprised she was sent to a mental health facility. And I also don’t get, after EVERYTHING that happened with her because she was on the damn internet, they still allow her to be on the computer. She should be watching Hannah Montana or playing with some barbies.

  4. “LYk3 OMFG u Guuuyzzzz!!! Kut thes $h!t Ouuutt! I’m LyK3 kryen Muh 3yez 0uT riT3 NA0 !f u haven’t n07iced!”
    Careful, guys. We’re getting backtraced and might get reported to the cyber-police.
    So don’t leave mean comments, or CONSEQUENCES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!!! (:

  5. After looking at her Twitter, I actually do feel sorry for her.. because it just shows how immature she really is, and she probably didn’t realise that what she was doing was really all that wrong.
    Still, I blame the fucking parents. When I was eleven I only played Neopets, and our computer was in the family room so I was always supervised.

  6. What i wanna know is why a 11yr old is doing on the internet like that? i didnt have a myspace or anything until i was 14…the parents of Jessi need to be evaluated.

  7. I’m glad she didn’t decide to lie on television to make herself look better.
    Um, why don’t I believe you used curse words because you couldn’t think of something to say?
    Because its not true. And I’m not saying when I was younger I didn’t lie about my age for a website, but I didn’t go on it harassing people, and making videos like that.
    I’m glad people are seeing through what she showed on tv.

  8. ugh, really, she brought the whole thing on herself, and also, glancing at her twitter, it might help if someone buys her a dictionary too, she seems to have literacy problems.
