Is “Kristen” Lori Drew?

Or Is It Another Hoax?

Words of the Original Hoaxer or Internet Troll? 

Part I 

Are we seeing a conversation between Lori Drew, Internet hoaxer, and hundreds of Internet surfers?

Or is this another hoax?

In either case, the reading is riveting. On one side is the author of the ‘Megan Had Coming’ Blog, which appeared on the weekend the Megan Meier story broke across the country.

Originally, the author identified herself as “Kristen”, supposedly an acquaintance of Megan Meier, before the 13-year-old committed suicide in 2006. The author then posted, what she claimed, was a “true picture of Megan”.

NOW the same blog, after largely being inactive, has another post. This one is titled “I’m Lori Drew”. It purports to be from the hoax-instigating mother, Lori Drew.

Is it?

Is “Kristen” really Lori Drew?

In our earlier story, “Lori Drew, Author of ‘Megan Had it Coming’ blog? , we reported on the “I’m Lori Drew” post.

There are now over 800 comments to that post at Megan Had it Coming, as well as a running verbal battle between the post’s author and Internet commenters.

Once again, is this Lori Drew?

We can’t know if it really is or if it’s the elaborate work of a “troll”, claiming to be Ms. Drew.

The timing of the posts argue against a troll. If it had been someone seeking attention, rather than justification for their actions, the stories would have been posted before this–at the height of press attention and the reactionary outrage.

We present the first in a running commentary between the author claiming to be Lori Drew and her readers. The author (Lori Drew) is identified here as “Megan Had it Coming”.

Wrong is wrong, whether or not it’s technically legal. You victimized a person a quarter of your age and you feel not one iota of remorse. just relief that you won’t be charged and resentment that the rest of the world won’t just let it go.

You have it coming said…

You are one sick, twisted woman. Don’t cry victim when you have a blog called “magen had it coming”. Give me a break. You brought all of this on yourself by misleading someone who by your own admission had “issues” but you continued to do it anyway. You, your daughter, your tdmp worker all deserve whatever hard times come upon. My only regret is that your husband, if he knew nothing about it, will be guilty by association. In fact maybe he may think about divorcing you, since you yourself seem to have the same dark side that Megan had.

If you had been 15 when you did all this, I would have understood. I would have had the reaction I think you intended when you wrote this.

But you were not 15. You were giving a 13-year-old girl a “taste of her own medicine.” Which means you, a grown woman who is supposed to help her own 13-year-old grow up, thought it was perfectly acceptable to act like a 13-year-old herself.

I think you believe that people care what Megan did, how innocent she was or was not. I don’t. I think most people think there is nothing a 13-year-old girl could do that warrants a grown adult initiating a set of events intended to harass and bully her.

Your explanation is the equivalent of “a ten-year-old bully beat up my eleven-year-old on the playground, so my 35-year-old husband beat the crap out of that ten-year-old.” Because you knew that Megan suffered from depression. You knew that emotionally, she was weaker than you and weaker than your daughter. Yet you chose to take advantage of that weakness, and justify that by saying “she started it.”

I think you need help. Your explanation is far worse than I had anticipated. I had reserved judgment believing that perhaps you had nothing to do with the bullying. Perhaps you already felt guilt and remorse. What you wrote here is far, far worse than I could have imagined.

and by the way, people do not have to be unbalanced to destroy a foosball table that belongs to a GROWN ADULT who bullied their daughter. Unbalanced, they would have done far worse. I think they showed amazing restraint.

YOU’RE NOT LISTENING TO ME! It’s not like we set out to “beat up a 10 year old.” Just to give her a taste of what she was doing to others. BUT IT GOT OUT OF CONTROL WHAT PART OF THAT DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND????

The only thing worse than the media is the mob mentality shown on these 1,000+ comments. People don’t listen, they don’t think, they don’t analyze, they don’t understand.

GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEAD I DIDN’T KILL MEGAN I DID WHAT ANY REASONABLE PARENT IN MY POSITION WOULD HAVE DONE WHY WON’T YOU PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THIS????
