Trolls Are Outing UVA’s “Jackie.” That’s Rolling Stone’s Fault Too.

“Jackie is not participating in a trial or even a university proceeding. Neither are the guys from the frat Rolling Stone named as the site of the alleged rape, whose names have been posted on various sites, and one of whom BuzzFeed outed with the cheap tactic of reporting that he’d retained a lawyer known for defending men on campus accused of rape. Thanks to Rolling Stone, the case is being adjudicated by reporters and bloggers and Internet trolls who range in type from the responsible to the opportunistic to the despicable.”
