An angry mom mob forms!
Two days after the article was published I was out shopping with my daughter when I got the first batch of angry emails. It wasn’t long before they were coming every minute. I was flooded with venom via email, Facebook, Twitter and the article comment section.
I didn’t understand why everyone was so mad at first. I was just reporting what someone else said. (Someone who immediately began saying he was “misquoted” and knew nothing about the article, by the way.)
But I listened. I read every angry message, even the ones calling me dreadful names.
Even the ones wishing me harm.
Even the ones wishing my children harm.
I ended the shopping trip early so I could go home and figure out what was going on. The messages kept coming. I stayed up reading them into the early morning hours.
I got a few hours of sleep and woke up to hundreds of new messages.
It felt like the Internet hated me.
