Reddit mob threatens 16 year old girl coder with rape threats and abuse

        When Harshita Arora, 16, posted about her cryptocurrency price
        tracking app on Reddit, she was falsely accused of plagiarism
        and then abused online and even threatened with rape by men
        who couldn't accept that she'd created the app without a man
        to help her. Arora, who lives in a small town in India,
        studied computer science in school and was accepted into an
        MIT summer program where she learned to build apps ...  "I
        doubt the girl herself came up with the idea and hired the
        contractor(s) herself. She's a 16 year old girl, she doesn't
        have the wherewithal or funds to do it herself (hiring the
        contractor, or coding the app)," one commenter wrote. "She's
        trying to look pretty for boys in her class, worrying about
        what the bitch Jessie said to Brittany about Cloe who likes
        Brian even though he so likes Ciara, and sitting in her room
        listening to 21 pilots or whoever. That's my take anyway."

Waiting for Trump to tweet that Reddit deserves "due process" about
this, because he always sides with the abusers. ALWAYS.
