Social media can be an incredibly wonderful thing. It allows us to connect with our fellow fans around the world, and even with some of the cast and crew. However, some people choose to take advantage of this medium, and use it for spreading messages of violence and hate.
Here are a few tips on how to handle these particular users.
Q. "How do I report inappropriate or abusive things on Facebook?"
A. "We remove things that violate the Facebook Terms(ex: pornography, hate speech, threats, graphic violence, bullying or spam). If you come across something on Facebook that violates our terms, use the report link near the abuse to submit a report."
