Other women named Ashley Solis, who were mistaken for the accuser, also received threatening messages from fans.
Solis’ Google business page was also flooded with negative one-star reviews on Tuesday.
As of now, 22 women have accused Watson of sexual assault but Solis is still the only one to come forward publicly.
