Not cool

So Green party co-leader Marama Davidson has received death threats on social media. 

This comes after Auckland City Council’s decision to refuse right-wingers Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux access to speak at council-owned venues, for fear of stirring up hate.

Davidson tweeted her support, and got death threats as a result.

I don’t agree with Davidson here. I think they should have a right to express their views, despite my personal distaste for them.

However, sending death threats is a) a dick move, b) really hurtful to the victim, and c) against the law.

I can’t believe I have to say this, but here it goes:

Don’t send people death threats.

Just don’t.

It’s really not that hard.
