What she did was stupid and hopefully she'll learn something from the experience.
It would have been a crass thing to do even if it had just been done with nobody other than her friends and collegues seeing it. With social media uploading pictures like that is simply asking for trouble.
I do think that death threats, rape threats and the like are uncalled for but it seems that people are happy to make threats like that, from the anonymity and distance of the internet, which they wouldn't make in a face to face situation because the chances of them having a visit from the police to discuss their threats is very remote.
Making threats like that can be dangerous because you never know how the person that is on the receiving end of them might react. There's been a situation going on in the states recently where the youngster on the receiving end had to be put on suicide watch because of the threats that were being made against them.
