Is online harassment out of control?
Keyboard warriors may seem harmless enough – hiding behind computer screens, their virtual attacks don’t cause physical harm. But some take their verbal assaults so far that the attacks become a form of bullying. RTS sports journalist David receives online death threats for his commentary during sports matches. Jacqueline is harassed on social networks by her ex. Jean is dragged through the mud publicly for a Twitter post. For some, engaging with social networks means exposing yourself to hatred and anonymous rage, which can be unleashed to such an extent that those on the receiving end are driven to suicide. In this eye-opening documentary, victims of digital harassment and trolls testify in front of the camera.
