Mel Greig – Sorry trolls, but we’re switching you off

“I’ve made a noose Mel and it belongs around your neck, I can’t wait to watch you take your last breath.” “I’m going to gut you like the pig that you are.” “Eye for an eye, I’m coming for you and your mum.” “You are a fat ugly whore, I’m going to show your husband what he really deserves to have.”
