Sophie Labelle was targeted by an army of online trolls because she’s transgender. This sort of thing is becoming increasingly common.
A Canadian trans cartoonist is searching for a new place to live after her home address was posted online this week amid a torrent of harassment.
Sophie Labelle’s Facebook page was inundated with Nazi memes, her website was hacked and she says she received death threats that forced her to cancel her comic book launch in Halifax on Wednesday.
Labelle, who draws the popular comic Assigned Male about a trans girl, says this attack is one example of what trans people face online every day, but this one was “particularly vicious.”
