Madeleine McCann 'Psychic' Becomes Latest Victim of Twitter Bullies
May 18, 2012 05:45 AM EDT
The disappearance of Madeleine McCann has attracted a variety of people including a TV psychic who recently claimed the missing girl died and reincarnated into a different young girl. Well, Acorah, the 62-year-old television psychic, may regret that his views came public, but he certainly hasn't changed them in the least. Even though the guy's ideas are fantastic and a bit over-the-top, the entertainment he provided for the rabid supporters of the McCann family turned out to be rather volatile.
Acorah was reportedly bullied by the many Twitter accounts (the number of actual people, however, is debatable) in support of the family of Madeleine McCann. Bullying, threats, and even full-out cyberstalking and harassment appears to be the M.O. of some of these types and it's a shame that this famed psychic had to be the butt end of their fury.
There's undoubtedly a reason why his opinion is unpopular to some, and that's because he believes Maddie is dead. Most of the actual evidence in the case of her disappearance actually points to her being deceased and not missing, so his opinion isn't really surprising. Nonetheless, those in support of the family's endeavors tend to get a bit of tunnel vision and refuse to acknowledge the possibilitiesthat this child never made it out of her rental apartment alive.
