Roseanne Barr and Michael McFaul argued with her on Twitter. BuzzFeed and The New York Times cited her tweets. Abrams, who at one point boasted nearly 70,000 Twitter followers, was featured in articles written by Bustle, U.S. News and World Report, USA Today, several local Fox affiliates, InfoWars, BET, Yahoo Sports, Sky News, IJR, Breitbart, The Washington Post, Mashable, New York Daily News, Quartz, Dallas News, France24, HuffPost, The Daily Caller, The Telegraph, CNN, the BBC, Gizmodo, The Independent, The Daily Dot, The Observer, Business Insider, The National Post, Refinery29, The Times of India, BuzzFeed, The Daily Mail, The New York Times, and, of course, Russia Today and Sputnik. Jenna Abrams, the freewheeling American blogger who believed in a return to segregation and said that many of America's problems stemmed from PC culture run amok, did not exist.

The Reverend Damien Darko does not exist.

I am part of a coordinated effort on behalf of the people of Mars to confuse and disorganize you Terrans so we may confiscate your supply of Pop-Tarts.

No. No. No! You need to PROVE that "she" convinced someone to change their vote or it didn't happen.

So sayeth the sheep. Who probably doesn't exist.
