A woman on Twitter called Bobbie Beale is getting abuse for killing Lucy Beale

So, after 10 long months, we finally found out who killed Lucy Beale. It was her brother, Bobby.

We used to think he was such a cute, lovely child – but now his EastEnders life is destined to follow the same trajectory as Ben Mitchell.

There’s also another bad consequence for the actions of Bobby – he’s making real people’s lives hell. A woman named Bobbie Beale, from California, is on the end of a lot of bad language on twitter.

Her only crime is having the same name – spelt differently, no less – as a murderous fictional child.

Why are 3 people from Scotland that I don't know, tweeting me about killing someone named Lucy…

I'm scared for my life about my last tweet

We think, though, that Bobbie began to enjoy her newfound notoriety...


Stay strong Bobbie Beale. We know you’re not at fault here.

The most amazing thing about that story is that Lucy is the name of her dog. THE NAME OF HER DOG.
