Kate Gosselin, Bullyville Under Scrutiny For Exposing Haters' Identities Online

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kate Gosselin and the website Bullyville recently encouraged the discovery of the real identities of some of the people who threatened her online.

Always a controversial figure, Kate is now at the center of a war between anti-bully activists and harsh critics of the reality star ... of which there are many.

James McGibney, head of Bullyville (dot com), exposed the real identities of numerous alleged Kate haters on Monday in a move that raised eyebrows.

He also threatened to call the employers of the Kate bashers, including the alleged older woman stalker who allegedly sent Kate more than 72,000 tweets.

For her part, Kate Gosselin is encouraging those who seek to protect her, as they reveal identities of others they said crossed the line while attacking her.

Throughout Monday, as McGibney unveiled the “real identities” of various Kate haters, Kate retweeted messages chronicling the unmasking of alleged bullies.

She previously expressed strong support for Bullyville and others who sought to protect her by revealing “bullies," thanking them for "cleaning house."

Kate recently Tweeted: “yes I proudly support all LEGAL means to bring bullies - who thought they could hide to light - on the internet or in school. @bullyville #stop”

But McGibney made it clear his actions were his own, and rejected the notion that Kate’s encouragement meant she was ordering an operation against her enemies.

“No one encourages me to do anything," the Bullyville founder told celebrity news site Radar Online. "I’m a grown man who makes his own decisions. :-)”

“For the record: Bullyville is going after Kate Gosselin’s bullies for specific death threats and over 100,000 slanderous and libelous posts.”

She clearly supports the mission. When Bullyville exposed one person believed to be dangerous to Kate Gosselin, she re-tweeted their message:

Kate Gosselin Staked

“Dear (name redacted), AGE 56, from (town redacted) Texas. Do you really think that your death threat references to @Kateplusmy8 are funny?”

The image above, showing Kate bloody and impaled, was reportedly a catalyst to start the operation to expose people he believes crossed the line.

But are they going too far in targeting alleged "bullies"?

One person “outed” as a Kate Gosselin hater said:

“He and Bullyville put my name, address, phone number, my teenager’s email address on (Web site redacted). For what!? Not liking Kate Gosselin?"

"Now Bullyville is saying they are going to all my employer?"

"I don’t know what he would say that would get me in trouble but I am a single mom living paycheck to paycheck. Bullyville and Kate G are the real bullies here."

“I never attacked, threatened or harassed anyone, ever.”

What do you think? Are Kate and Bullyville going too far?

Yes, he was paid to do it Just Wondering. He also put a $200 bounty on their heads. *calling 911* *calling FBI* When you are looking at KYAnonymous and his OP's please check out the KateGosselinOP by Bullyville. KyAnonymous D0Xing housewives who didn't like Kate Gosselin. Getting their info illegally it sounds. He was a paid Anon. Wow.

But, however one may feel about government overreaction to arguably victimless cybercrimes such as illegal downloads, people who use their computer skills to harass and intimidate others—even when they believe it’s in a good cause—should have some fear of legal repercussions. And, while libel is not a criminal offense, those who recklessly engage in it must surely forfeit some degree of public sympathy. Ok, so this KYAnonymous guy is the same one who helped Bullyville get the info on these women. He was "contracted" by and I'm guessing "contracted" means paid by McGibney to go after these women. http://gawker.com/weaponize-th... So shouldn't someone be calling the FBI to let them know what KY did? Or, if Bullyville paid KY to do it? I mean was a crime committed?

Anyone can view Kate Gosselin's Timeline and see that there are some serious bullies day and night that bully her and anyone who says anything nice to her. Just watch her Timeline yourself and you will see how they sock puppet several names and come from a Kate hate blog, and take to twitter to intentionally insult her and harass her and anyone who dares to send Kate a nice tweet. Just watch them, they are like piranhas in a feeding frenzy, their hate consumes them and is what gives them life to do it day and night as some of them are doing. They do have too much time on their hands spending it hating someone, when instead they could go like someone or do something mentally stable minded, like a hobby or running, bike rides, time with their kids or grandkids, or go cheer up a neighbor or someone in assisted living, instead of sitting hating on twitter. An abusive person, as some of these haters on twitters are being, will turn and try to blame the person they victimize. Kate is not hating on any of them day and night, leave her alone and live your life, let her live hers.

Please if anyone does a little internet browsing you'll find out all about this Bullyville guy. Anyone ever hear about "Cheaterville"? Its a site anyone can go to and say they slept with YOUR MOM. Say awful things - hateful things -- and guess who started it? Yep, Mr. Bullyville himself. He runs a site where I can go on and say (whoever I choose, perhaps a teacher who gave me a bad grade or if my boss made me mad that day) say they had sex with me, etc, etc. I don't need proof, just the "victims" name. AND this guy is protecting Kate Gosselin from bullying? Please tell me this is a delayed April Fools joke? If I were that 62 year old "victim" who he outed...I'd be on the internet day and night finding out who he victimized with his website. Then I'd gather them all as witnesses and take him to court in a class action suit. This is crazy.

I saw the threats bullyville made to that elderly lady and it wasn't a good thing to do. Maybe this lady lives alone and has a lot of time on her hands. Either way bullyville is the bigger bully in this match. I'll go a step further and say I believe it was down right criminal what they did to her.

The cartoon image of Kate Gosselin being impaled on a stick was a depiction of Kate's most obsessed FAN, a 60 year old woman in Georgia, who describes herself as "Fired Up For Kate" In the cartoon, the letters on the sheep's collar are "FUFK" an acronym for fired up for Kate.
The cartoon was a parody of a photograph FUFK once tweeted to Kate, in which FUFK was holding a stick with a caterpillar impaled on it. That is why the cartoon depicts FUFK holding a stick with Kate impaled on it.

This Kate needs to just go tend to her kids and stop fighting with people on twitter. The bullville people need to concentrate on bigger ideas. They are making themselves look desperate for attention.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but your article is the only one that is unbiased and non-judgemental (unlike Radar Online that presents a highly biased and one sided view). Kudos. Oh, and by the way, I think it's WRONG to bully someone for any reason. Both sides in this ridiculous twitter 'war' have unclean hands. Besides, with Twitter, how hard is it to simply block the person who is sending you tweets? Problem solved! lol

Justin Bieber, IRS, SpongeBob, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chick-fil-A, Rod Blagojevich, Ann Coulter, Eliot Spitzer, Sarah Pallin and Mitt Romney have a lot of haters out there. Maybe this Bullyville guy can help them and disclosure all the addresses and personal information of their haters to the public too, LOL. As for this Gosselin mother, a good way to avoid the public to voice their opinions would be to shut down her twitter account or keep it private.

This scares me. If I go on a website/blog in the future and say I don't like the way Beyonce danced or I hate Madonna's hairstyle is my name and address going to be published? I also think the bullies are being bullied by bullies. And Bullyville looks like the bigger bully picking on elderly woman ~
