(WENN) - Melissa Joan Hart has been targeted by abusive Internet bullies over her political preference for presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The actress received a string of offensive comments on her Twitter page shortly after Barack Obama was re-elected as President on Tuesday.
The actress retweeted some of the abuse she received, including a message branding her "a fat, unbankable, untalented, uneducated, neo-con, bad mom, child star from the 80s" and another reading, "hey Sabrina, f**k you".
Hart hit back at her attackers, insisting she was disgusted by the messages and adding:
