Sherri Shepherd Goes to Police After Receiving Twitter Threat

ABC/STEVE FENN(NEW YORK) -- Sherri Shepherd does not take being threatened on Twitter lightly.

The View co-host and recent Dancing with the Stars contestant went to the police after a Twitter user with the handle @DaCloneKiller wrote to her, "Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you."

Shepherd re-tweeted the comment Wednesday, then wrote, "THIS IS A THREAT & I'M PISSED."

After warning her followers about the dangers of online bullying, she wrote, "Just returned from filing a police report for this online harrassment nonsense. I will be pursuing this legally."
