Glamour model and online personality Kourtney Reppert was the recent victim of online cyberstalking and has stepped out to speak about her experience in hopes to raise awareness about online bullying, reports ABC News.
The 26 year-old, who has gained hundreds of thousands of followers by posting semi-nude photo’s of herself in addition to offering life advice, revealed spine-chilling death threats from cyberstalker Luis Plascencia who has since been arrested by the FBI.
“I’m going to stab you in the f—ing heart and cut your f—ing head off. I will kill your parents, cut them to pieces with a handsaw, do you f—ing understand me? Don’t f— with me or make me mad,” read one threat that dates back to March 8th, with another saying,
“I hope you die in an automobile accident and crush your ugly face through the windshield and a large piece of glass cuts your throat.”
According to the Sun Times, Reppert says that her stalker went on to demand that she delete all of her social media accounts and immediately move back to Pennsylvania from Los Angeles. The model says she moved to LA only a year earlier to further her modeling career.
“He changed the way I view people,” she said. “I don’t even want to go out. I don’t even want to work because I’m so petrified.”
However, despite this frightening experience with her stalker, Reppert has teamed up with former Miss USA Chelsey Cooley in an attempt to raise awareness and fight back against cyber bullying and abuse. The duo has formed a hotline and a website to provide a place for victims to find help in their situations.
“On the darkest day, during the most hopeless moments, when it’s hard to even get out of bed- we understand. Cyberstalking, bullying and any form of abuse are everywhere. It’s hard to trust and know where to turn. Until now,” reads their website.
