Ashley Judd Wants to Press Charges Following Twitter Harassment
Ashley Judd is fighting back against people she says are threatening her on Twitter over a basketball game!
She said on the Today show, "And by the way, I'm pressing charges!"
During Sunday's championship game, the 46-year-old star railed against the Arkansas Razorbacks "dirty play."
She tweeted, "Razorback's dirty play can kiss my team's free throw making [expletive]. Bloodied 3 players so far."
Kentucky won, but Ashley was quickly inundated with threatening tweets so disgusting we can't mention them.
Ashley hit back, writing, "When I express a stout opinion during #MarchMadness I am called a whore, threatened with sexual violence. Not okay."

She appeared on the Today show and demanded that the offenders be prosecuted.
She said, "The amount of gender violence that I experience is absolutely extraordinary and a significant part of my day today will be spent filing police reports at home about gender violence that's directed at me on social media. That many people. That explicit. That overt."
Ashley is the second high-profile celebrity to pursue social media trolls.
Two weeks ago former baseball great Curt Schilling told INSIDE EDITION how he tracked down two guys who threatened his teenaged daughter with sexual violence on Twitter.
He told INSIDE EDITION, "No one deserves to be treated like this and it's against the law in a lot of cases for people to talk like that."
Ashley Judd is a fanatical Kentucky Wildcats fan and regularly attends home games. At Sunday's big game, she got a full on-the-lips kiss from ESPN commentator Dick Vitale, and it's getting a lot of attention.
What she was thinking was the subject of David Letterman's Top Ten list Monday night. He said, "#10 Personal foul! Hello! #7 Mmmmm Fixodent! #6 First time in my life I wish I was Wynonna."
