Don't allow 'online abusers' to hide behind fake profiles!

Don't allow 'online abusers' to hide behind fake profiles!

That is the call from Northern Ireland politicians this morning following false misogynistic material circulating online about DUP Assembly candidate Diane Forsythe.

Ms Forsythe has said she had been subjected to “a campaign of vilification” since she was selected to run for the party in South Down.

The DUP's Director of Elections Gordon Lyons said as well as reporting the matter to police the party would take legal action against anyone found sharing the allegations online.

"None of our candidates will be intimidated or meekly stand by whilst their character is attacked by faceless trolls.

"This vile material is motivated by an inherent misogynistic prejudice and designed to undermine Diane's character," Mr Lyons said.
