Jon Lovitz Uses Twitter To Expose Bullies For Hate Crime

By: Amanda Crum - April 12, 2012

Comedian and actor Jon Lovitz doesn’t take kindly to bullies, especially when they target someone he knows…and when the bullying becomes a hate crime, he fights back in a brilliant way: with Twitter.

When someone drew swastikas, wrote the word “JEW”, and left dog feces on the front lawn of his daughter’s friend’s house–whose parents are Holocaust survivors– he tweeted about the incident and then posted a picture of the perpetrators: three teenage girls, saying if they wanted to be famous, he’d see to it that they were.

Some coward & idiot left this on a friend’s doorstep, yesterday.

The tweets led to the girls being busted and expelled from their Northridge, California school. The mother of one of the girls was involved as well, driving them to the home at 3 a.m. so they could commit their crime without being seen. She faces criminal charges.
