Ever wonder why people go through so much effort to cause trouble on the Internet? Here’s such an example: according to Seattle News station KIRO 7, a woman has been charged with sending death threats to Chris Cornell of Soundgarden via Twitter. But this wasn’t just a few messages from a single account. This woman, Elizabeth Walden, sent Cornell over hundreds of messages from nine different Twitter accounts, some of which implied raping his 13-year-old daughter. So, that’s kind of fucked up.
This isn’t the first time Cornell has had to deal with something like this either. In 2007, he claimed that his ex-wife and one-time manager Susan Silver was sending death threats to Cornell’s family. And a year earlier in 2006, a British man was sending letters also threatening Cornell and his family. Hopefully the arrest of Walden will be the last bit of harassment Cornell has to deal with.
