Days of our Lives Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) made the decision a few hours ago to shut down her Twitter account due to the public outcry and controversy over her recent tweet on the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Reeves, who had been at the eye of the storm over the last few weeks, posted her final tweet with these remarks below to her followers!
Melissa Reeves: “Due to all of the inappropriate comments and threats to me and my family, I regret to say that I will be shutting down this Twitter account. I don’t feel that it is God-honoring to spend this much time fighting over things that we disagree on. The internet can be a great thing, but it can also be very destructive in the sense that you cannot truly learn the heart of a person in just a few words. I appreciate and love you all and thank you for your support over the years and will be praying for you. “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30
So this brings up a whole set of issues with social networking, how we treat one another, making a tweet that could be interpreted or misinterpreted any numbers of ways, and then of course, there is the entire issues that has been debate that has been ongoing at On-Air On-Soaps as to whether this is at it’s core a freedom of speech issue or not, due to information that has come to light on how Chick-fil-A funnels money to help Anti-gay groups. Let us know your thoughts at this juncture!
