On Friday, Kelly wrote from her official Twitter account that a website hosted by GoDaddy and a Change.org petition were calling for action against Kelly, who was described as a “Nazi” and appeared in edited photos with a Hitler-style mustache.
Both the website and petition—which now result in error pages, according to Insider—called the 14-year-old a “Nazi” who “hates Jews.”
URGENT: https://t.co/ZUTHnWZFzA (web host) refuses to take down a site making false claims about me. I am 14, & the website calls me a Nazi & antisemite. This has impacted me at school & I am scared for my safety. Please help. They said the person is doing nothing wrong. pic.twitter.com/9UyTlbVEue— Lifewithmak2005 (@lifewithmak2005) December 13, 2019
“URGENT: GODADDY.com (web host) refuses to take down a site making false claims about me. I am 14, & the website calls me a Nazi & antisemite,” Kelly tweeted. “This has impacted me at school & I am scared for my safety. Please help. They said the person is doing nothing wrong.”
GoDaddy allegedly responded to a complaint by Kelly’s parents and said it would not remove the website without a court order, according to screenshots Kelly tweeted.
Their response (https://t.co/ntjV9mlNAz). How could they seriously brush off concern for my safety regarding this issue? I am in tears over this & what if someone took this seriously and hurt me? I’m 14. I am scared to go to school. This needs to be addressed & STOPPED. Now. https://t.co/rzm1Ub3Jiy pic.twitter.com/j6aQXPApFj— Lifewithmak2005 (@lifewithmak2005) December 13, 2019
“GoDaddy does not allow illegal content on our customer’s website,” the email from GoDaddy reads. “However, as a hosting provider, it is not our place to determine if the site you have mentioned is actually engaging in illegal activities.”
It’s unclear if the sites’ creators removed them or if the platforms did.
In another tweet, Kelly said she believes the website was created by a classmate of hers.
I THINK it’s a classmate. We are letting the school and local police know. https://t.co/VUI5eUoQXA— Lifewithmak2005 (@lifewithmak2005) December 13, 2019
She also asked her followers what would’ve happened if she wasn’t YouTube famous.
“Who’s the voice for teens in serious danger?” she wrote. “If we can’t trust the police in our local area what more can we do?” Kelly wrote. “I am crying right now thinking about victims to harassment that could have been stopped with the help of police. It’s sickening.”
