Recently, there's a cyberbullying case in Britain that caught my attention. Maybe some of you know about this matter. A female lawyer, already established, suffered a terrible backlash in social media, due to her recent act of speaking up against sexism.
The point is, she screencaptured the perpetrator and showed it online, which lead to trolls bullying her even more, harsher than ever. A question then popped up:
Is showing the bullies (or the acts if bullying) to public counts as public shaming, and thus equals to bullying?
Personally, I don't think so. Depends on each case, surely, but in this one, I think it's the same with news media reporting crime and the culprits.
Tell me what do you think ^^
