But the same, tragically, cannot be said for one anonymous individual.
Following months of virtual harassment, the actress went on the offensive last night, positing an Instagram screen capture of 500-plus comments from her “online stalker” and writing a very long message along with the image.
“Tonight I finally said f--k this s--t," Bush wrote. "This kind of behavior does. Not. Fly. You do not have permission to hide. Not anymore: This has gotten beyond out of hand. Obsessive. Violent. And legally punishable."
The stalker has been using the Twitter handle "@SophhiaBush," with the actual Sophia Bush apologizing here for any harm the creep has caused to her fans.
"I'm so sorry," she wrote. "I'm sure he/she will be blocked again soon, only to create another account. We're close to 20 now. And law enforcement says, 'We're on it,' and 'don't acknowledge this person,' but when this person, this vitriolic perverse monster is targeting all of you? Threatening rape, gang rape, & throat slitting to name a few? Impersonating me and breaking some of your hearts? Telling people they should kill themselves, and detailing how?
"Nope. No silence. As the evidence of staking and harassment mounts, so does my anger. Because this is grotesque."
That is very much for sure.
Bush, to her credit, included some sympathy with her anger, continuing her rant with advice for her stalker.
"What happened to you, you poor lost soul, that this is how you find pleasure? That you need to attempt to destroy little bits of other people to build yourself up, bit by bit? Who in your life hurt you? Who made you need to act out like this? Because my god I feel so sorry for you. But my sorrow in the face of your pain is no match for my anger at the pain you are causing others."
On a roll, Bush continued:
"You do not have the right to spread poison because you have felt poisoned. It's a small minded and ugly path to take. Choosing to inflict pain doesn't make you strong or powerful. It only proves your weakness and self-loathing
"All the time you're taking to verbally harass us, threaten physical assault, and terrorize strangers? Please start spending it in therapy and learn to love yourself. You deserve it. And because none of us deserve one more moment of your bullying bulls--t."
In closing, Bush wrapped up her message with a few hashtags: #gethelp #bullyingisugly #violenceisntfunny #thereisabetterway.
Let's hope the authorities catch this terrible person soon.
