Ashley Judd is taking legal action after she received threats of sexual violence on Twitter.
"The amount of gender violence that I experienced is absolutely extraordinary," she said during a new interview on "TODAY." "A significant part of my day today will be spent filing police reports at home about gender violence that's directed at me on social media."
The actress happens to be an enthusiastic supporter of the University of Kentucky Wildcats, the basketball team of her alma mater. The violent threats she's referring to started after she tweeted about her team's rivals.
"If I were in a more calmed state of mind I would [have] phrased [it] differently," she said on MSNBC Monday. "I might have said, 'I am really disappointed what seems like ultra-aggressive play' ... instead of what I wrote, 'I think Arkansas is playing dirty.'"
This prompted a series of disproportionately hateful responses, something the "Insurgent" star immediately took a stand against. "When when I express a stout opinion during #MarchMadness I am called a whore, c---, threatened with sexual violence," she tweeted. "Not okay."
