Nick Leddy A Victim Of Social Media Harassment

from Arthur Staple of Newsday,

Social media threats made to Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy Tuesday prompted local and federal authorities to open an investigation, the team said.

A now-suspended Twitter account posted pictures of Leddy's Minnesota driver's license and a credit card and made violent threats against the Islanders' defenseman and the team's security director contacted the Nassau County police as well as the FBI.

"We alerted local and federal authorities immediately, as well as the NHL," a team spokesperson said. "They're investigating the matter. Nick and his family are safe."

A Twitter user named ‘NoorsSlut’ posted an image of Leddy’s Minnesota driver’s license and a MasterCard debit card with “Nicholas Leddy” on it. The user also posted images of an unidentified woman posing with Leddy, with derogatory words written over her face and body in Photoshop. The same woman appeared as the avatar on user’s account.

While the Tweets were later deleted, there were also reports of death threats towards Leddy originating from the account.
