A self-affirmed individual from the Proud Boys radical gathering has been accused in Philadelphia of conveying terroristic intimidations toward a lady on the web.
Kyle Boell, 40, was accused of undermining and pestering the lady by means of Twitter in late 2020. From Nov. 8 through Nov. 15, he sent her “handfuls” of messages “in regards to the lady’s weight and appearance, and made unequivocal references to sexual movement and private body parts,” the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office declared.
One message read, “Antifa is done in Philly f – around u fat b – and u will discover. Go report me call the cops. F – u im an apparition [sic],” as indicated by the DA’s office.“Like all bullies, Kyle Boell is basically a coward who was afraid to use his real name and sent his disgusting messages to a woman while hiding behind the moniker ‘Tatted[expletive]80,’”
First Assistant District Attorney Judge Carolyn Temin said.
The Proud Boys are a right-wing extremist group that describes itself as “Western chauvinists.” Members have been known to frequent white supremacist rallies, and some were at the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
It was not immediately clear if Boell had retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
