The word “Nazi” gets thrown around so much on social media, often by leftists who use the term to describe “someone whose opinion I don’t like.” At what point does name-calling become libel and defamation, forcing someone to take legal action? Is it hypocritical to be pro-free speech, but sue for defamation?
True North’s Investigative Journalism Fellow, Lindsay Shepherd, interviews Rebel Media personality Sheila Gunn Reid on her experience being called a “neo-Nazi” by Twitter user and academic Dave Barrett, and why she decided to take legal action against him, resulting in Dave having to pay Sheila $1,200.
