Jon Lovitz Gets Anti-Semitic Bullies Expelled, Thanks to Twitter

Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Alzheimer's Association(NEW YORK) -- Former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz has found a new use for the microblogging service Twitter: busting bullies.

Last week, the comic contacted the 26,000-plus followers on his Twitter feed to expose three girls who had been bullying his friend’s daughter, after the trio put dog feces on the girl’s doorstep and used syrup to paint swastikas and the word “Jew” on her front walk.

Lovitz posted a picture of their handiwork, saying, “Swastikas in sh** left on my friend’s front porch were done by three 14-year-old girls, driven to the house by one of the girl’s mother.” Lovitz also posted pictures of the three girls, saying, “The 3 girls who are bullying my friend’s daughter. They want to be known. Let them be famous as Jew haters. Pls RT.”

Lovitz saw a quick response, explaining Monday the girls have been “charged with a hate incident” — because syrup isn’t permanent — and later, “UPDATE!!!! The three girls who vandalized my friends home with swastikas and dog crap, have been expelled from their school permanently.”

The mother who drove the girls to the house in the middle of the night so they could pull off the prank could also face charges.

Lovitz says the bullied girl’s grandfather was a Holocaust survivor.

Winona Ryder: Mel Gibson Called Me an 'Oven Dodger'

Photo Courtesy - FilmMagic/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Winona Ryder claims she's known about Mel Gibson's not-so-palatable side for years.

"I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties,” Ryder told GQ Magazine in the January 2011 issue. “He was really drunk. I was with my friend, who's gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about 'oven dodgers,' but I didn't get it. I'd never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, 'He's anti-Semitic and he's homophobic.' No one believed me!"

Gibson's publicist did not immediately respond to an ABC News request for comment.
