Vine Star Jessi Smiles

Inundated with Death Threats

After Rape Accusations

Vine star Jessi Smiles is getting REAMED on the Internet after accusing fellow Viner Curtis Lepore of rape ... she's even receiving death threats, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lepore (Smiles' ex-boyfriend) was arrested in October for allegedly raping her in her sleep. He was charged and pled not guilty this week.

Lepore posted a Vine on Thursday addressing the allegations -- saying, "There's two sides to every story. When the time is right, I will have something to say" -- but his fans were MUCH more outspoken.



As soon as we broke the story, Smiles was inundated with vicious death threats and accusations that she made up everything and then leaked the story to the media ... all in the name of publicity.

One user tweeted, "so jessi smiles told people Curtis raped her while they were dating. NO F**K YOU JESSI I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN YOU LITTLE BITCH."

Another person commented on Vine, "Hows it feel to lie about being raped," "F**king bitch he didn’t f**king rape you dumb bitch."

Generally, a "star" is someone who is talented and well known. These people don't seem to be either.

People on twitter and such are so violent with their words. This, sadly, is why most women do not report assaults. Sometimes it just isn't the worth the violence and abuse that can come afterwards. Sometimes it is safer to go to counselling and not press any charges. Even then, people still show so much anger saying that you have a responsibility to "stop" him from reoffending. Women in these scary situations cannot win.

If people are going on twitter to contact her and harass her and say such vile things, those twitter users being abusive need to step back and look long and hard at their behavior and their threats!!! I hope Bullyville is watching each and every one of these vile twitter losers and investigating full real names already. If not they should put Bullyville on to it and get those twitter users suspended or held accountable for TERRORIZING!!!!!!!!!!

You cannot use the internet to terrorize someone with death threats without being held accountable.

Their digital imprints already probably have these terrorizing twitter users monitored. Your ISP is your identity and those using sites to mask their IP, they can still trace you and hold you accountable legally for terrorizing someone.

Raped her in her sleep? I'm going to assume she woke up at some point.

I have no idea who these people are but there is no excuse for rape . There is also no excuse for false accusation of rape. Let the justice figure it out and all the death threats be taken serious , safety first (always)
