It's just harassment, which apparently can be both criminal and civil depending on jurisdictions.

Not that she should, she should simply have expected it.
It should never have been a surprise to her.

Someone who can perform a bit of self-reflection can understand their behaviour.

Who are you to judge someone else's lifestyle choices or sexual orientations?

Legality has little to do with it.

That's cool, but that's irrelevant. You're not everyone.

A lot of people would view this as an insult. Youtube is not exactly the sort of place where people do a lot of introspection and self-reflection before posting.
