Yeah, the reaction of the public to the story is strange.
But I learned that some problems just can't be solved by reason. To be solved they have to be fueled by drama.
And more than that - to be discussed they have to be fueled by drama.
Otherwise - people pretend to be reasonable. But in truth they are simply closing their eyes on the problem.
So - I think it was a good story. No one got seriously harmed (yet). And despise idiotic comments - the story makes people actually think.
I dunno. I think some problems have to be fueled by drama to properly break, but the reaction should not be drama. Interesting point, though.

The girl has been receiving threats on her FB page since this happened. To me, that's harm. Hopefully nothing goes beyond threats though.

She could close her wall to people leaving comments.
Honestly? I haven't followed this much at all but it really smells of fake to me.
