According to an account by The Verge, the website was quite susceptible to trolls and quickly gave way to chaos.

But Porter told Fox News that the haters only prove that the networking site is necessary.

"I think there are some people that are threatened by freedom of speech," she said in an interview published Saturday. "People are used to the silencing of all dissent. That's not what this country is founded on."

She still hopes that ReaganBook will "tear down walls of tyranny."

"ReaganBook is putting freedom on the offensive," she told Fox.
