It's a strange time to be a journalist in America.
Our fragmented culture coupled with the rise of "fake news" allegations from prominent public figures has led to a widespread wariness of the press and a tendency to seek information from increasingly segregated and impenetrable social media bubbles.
But it's not just the tiny Twitter fingers of our commander-in-chief that have vigilant reporters running scared.
They also have to worry about threats and calls to violence from far less powerful reality stars.
We're talking about folks like Farrah Abraham, who threatened to straight-up murder a reporter this week after he leveled a very credible accusation that Farrah is working as a prostitute.
There's no shame in sex work, folks!
But there is shame in threatening to kill someone because you don't like what they said on the internet.
Check it out:
Farrah on the Spot
Ever since she was fired from Teen Mom OG back in December of 2017, there have been many rumors about how Ms. Abraham is managing to support herself. One of the most persistent is that she's working as a prostitute.
Making It Work
Again, we're not here to shame Farrah for her choice of profession. In fact, we applaud her for the ways in which she's made sex work work for her in the past.
Farrah rakes in big bucks as a cam girl, even offering erotic couples counseling to those willing to shell out four figures for an hour of her services.
But while she claims to take pride in the work she does, Farrah has come under fire for being dishonest about the nature of her career and shaming others who perform sex work.
Case in point -- remember Farrah's porn? The in which she co-starred with porn star James Deen? The one that's still sold and marketed by a porn company to this day? Yeah, she claims that was an amateur "sex tape" that leaked without her knowledge or consent.
Farrah has persisted in this claim despite the fact that Deen has confirmed he was paid for his services, and Vivid Pictures even revealed the terms of her contract.
