Offaly blogger receives sick and threatening hate mail

Offaly blogger receives sick and threatening hate mail

An Offaly blogger has been targeted by sick hate mail after receiving a threatening letter this week. 

Lisa McGowan, the woman behind the hugely successful Lisa's Lust List blog, took to social media this week to brush off the unsettling incident.

Posting the image of the letter on Facebook, the Tullamore woman said: "Some sad people out there, girls. I actually feel sorry for them."

The letter was addressed to the blogger who has almost 200,000 Facebook follower and referred to Lisa as "the smooth operator."

It also contained the sinister words, 'R.I.P Bitch,' and referred to Lisa as being "mean, a bitch and a liar." It also appeared to make reference to McGowan's brother who died in a car accident in 2005.

Lisa's post about the letter has garnered thousands of comments with followers quick to offer support and condemn the letter writer.

One wrote: "I’m fuming. Sadly, that excuse of a note says so much more about the character, or lack thereof, of the person who sent it."

"They are not even worth pity, you are such a lovely girl, you do so much for everyone and those that truly know you know that there isn’t a bad bone in your body."

"Keep your beautiful head up high," they continued.

The Offaly Express has contacted An Garda Síochána for comment on this incident.
