(NEW YORK) — Former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz has found a new use for the microblogging service Twitter: busting bullies.
Last week, the comic contacted the 26,000-plus followers on his Twitter feed to expose three girls who had been bullying his friend’s daughter, after the trio put dog feces on the girl’s doorstep and used syrup to paint swastikas and the word “Jew” on her front walk.
Lovitz posted a picture of their handiwork, saying, “Swastikas in sh** left on my friend’s front porch were done by three 14-year-old girls, driven to the house by one of the girl’s mother.” Lovitz also posted pictures of the three girls, saying, “The 3 girls who are bullying my friend’s daughter. They want to be known. Let them be famous as Jew haters. Pls RT.”
Lovitz saw a quick response, explaining Monday the girls have been “charged with a hate incident” — because syrup isn’t permanent — and later, “UPDATE!!!! The three girls who vandalized my friends home with swastikas and dog crap, have been expelled from their school permanently.”
The mother who drove the girls to the house in the middle of the night so they could pull off the prank could also face charges.
Lovitz says the bullied girl’s grandfather was a Holocaust survivor.
