This probably wasn’t her best decision.
According to BuzzFeed, 22-year-old Alicia Ann Lynch instantly began taking heat online after posting a photo of her Boston Marathon bombing victim costumes.
After the photo went viral, people on the Internet began criticizing Lynch via Twitter and other social media outlets. However, things were just getting started.
The internet rage spun out of control as Twitter users took out their anger at Lynch by contacting her family. They also circulated nude pictures and videos of her found on Tumblr.
Lynch was forced to delete all of her social media accounts but later logged on to Twitter, apologized and asked people to leave her family alone. Her account has since been suspended.
Lynch also claimed that she was fired from her job because of the costume. She also said she is receiving death threats.
