Ben Shapiro’s Sister Abigail Trolled Due to His Conservative Stance
Ben Shapiro's sister Abigail 'Abby' Shapiro was subjected to myriad trolls and harsh criticism from netizens over her brother’s conservative commentary.
Opera singer Abigail is the youngest sibling of the conservative commentator. She is often caught up between her brother’s controversial statements and the world.
The host of the political podcast The Ben Shapiro Show has been fodder for trolls and ridicule amongst comedians and the Twitterverse for a while now. However, the backlash is not just limited to Ben.
His entire Jewish family, including his sibling and other relatives, has fallen victim to the trolling brought about by Ben’s orthodox views on several issues.
Ben Shapiro's Sister Supports Him
Ben’s unabashed opinions on social media have been met with different reactions from his family members too.
While his cousin, actress Mara Wilson, blocked the host on social media, his sister is seen supporting him.

Abigail’s support for her brother’s opinions has sent a lot of hate her way.
She brands herself as ‘Classically Abby’ on social media sites, and on Instagram, she has described herself as a #conservativeinfluencer, implying her perceptions do not differ from her brother’s.
She stated she was proud to be his sibling because he didn't debase himself by reading the uncensored lyrics of that "garbage song."

The online hate and abuse Abigail was getting gained intensity when her brother posted an offensive Tweet against the LGBTQ community on September 20, 2020.
In the tweet, Ben stated that homosexuality and transgenderism resulted from one’s lack of control over their impulses.
He even compared the scenario with having a hot sister but needing to control natural impulses.

The tweet garnered massive backlash, because of which Ben deleted it.
However, it was too late. Twitteratis noted her brother’s insinuation and hot sister analogy were harsh when Abigail choose to stay quiet in the matter.
The trolls and hate even took the form of nasty comments on her YouTube videos and emails.
Speaking of the hate she had been receiving over her brother’s opinion, Abigail said she would live with the judgments and hate forever since the people know of her and Ben’s relationship.
Now that they know who I am, I’m going to be living with these kinds of things forever — people sending me gross stuff, I’d rather it not be something I deal with privately. My name is going to be linked with Ben’s — at this point or down the line.
Additionally, the opera singer was also trolled harshly when she labeled Taylor Swift an SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and renounced being her fan over it.
