Brittany Schussler, a member of the Canadian women’s long-track speed skating team took a beating in more ways than one this weekend.
In the ladies’ 1,500-metre final, the top Canadian was Kali Christ of Regina finished way back in 16th. Defending Olympic 1,000m champion Christine Nesbitt finishing one spot behind Christ in 15th, and Brittany Schussler finished in 26th.
Yet all that pain was small compared to the hate unleashed online toward Brittany Schussler over a picture she posted on Twitter of herself with President Vladimir Putin.
While demanding everyone be “tolerant” of homosexuals they unleashed hate and intolerance towards Schussler because of the picture.
The picture was of her and President Putin beside each other.
It was shared on Twitter with the caption: “I should have asked him to be my valentine!”
Because of the death threats and hate mail Schussler deleted the image. It seems that the “tolerant” people will go to any lengths to attack, threaten and bully anyone that does not agree with them. Even go as far as threaten innocent people that take a picture with someone.
