Abigail ‘Abby’ Shapiro, Ben Shapiro’s sister, was subjected to a slew of trolls and severe insults from netizens in response to her brother’s hardline commentary.
Abigail, the conservative commentator’s younger sister, is an opera singer. She is frequently caught between her brother’s contentious views and the rest of the world.
For a long time, the host of the political podcast The Ben Shapiro Show has been fodder for trolls and scorn among comedians and the Twitterverse. The anger, however, is not restricted to Ben.
His entire Jewish family, including his sibling and other relatives, has been subjected to trolling as a result of Ben’s orthodox opinions on a variety of issues.
Ben Shapiro’s Sister Abigail Shapiro
Despite the controversy and hatred that has surrounded them, the sibling duo appears to have a strong bond.
On May 11, 2020, Ben posted Abigail’s video and commended her singing abilities. On Mother’s Day, Abigail sang ‘Mama, A Rainbow’ in the video.
Abigail is a digital content creator with over 100k subscribers on YouTube in addition to being a vocalist.
On January 30, 2022, her YouTube channel Classically Abby attained a new milestone.
“IT’S FINALLY OFFICIAL! YouTube even sent me a commemorative plaque!” She captioned a photo of herself standing with YouTube’s silver play button.
Abigail is happily married to her husband, Jacob, in her personal life. She and her husband are expecting their first child, a son.
Supporter of Ben Shapiro was His Sister
Ben’s outspoken social media opinions have elicited a range of emotions from his family members.
While his cousin, actress Mara Wilson, has blocked the presenter on social media, his sister appears to be rooting for him.
Abigail’s support for her brother’s viewpoints has earned her a lot of scorn.
On social media, she goes by the handle ‘Classically Abby,’ and on Instagram, she describes herself as a #conservativeinfluencer, meaning that her views are similar to those of her brother.

On August 11, 2020, Abigail tweeted her approval for her brother’s assessment of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s song ‘WAP.’
She expressed her pride in being his sibling since he did not debase himself by reading the unedited words of that “trash song.”
Online slander and abuse On September 20, 2020, Abigail’s fervor grew after her brother wrote an abusive Tweet about the LGBTQ community.
Ben added in the tweet that homosexuality and transgenderism were the results of a lack of control over one’s urges.
He even compared the situation to having a hot sister but having to control instincts.
Ben removed the tweet when it received a lot of backlashes.
It was, however, too late. When Abigail chose to remain silent about the subject, Twitteratis pointed out that her brother’s insinuation and hot sister analogy were harsh.
Trolls and vitriol came in the shape of scathing comments on her YouTube videos and emails.
Speaking about the hatred she had been receiving for her brother’s opinion, Abigail stated that she would have to live with the judgments and hatred for the rest of her life because people were aware of her and Ben’s relationship.
“Now that they know who I am, I’m going to be living with these kinds of things forever — people sending me gross stuff, I’d rather it not be something I deal with privately. My name is going to be linked with Ben’s — at this point or down the line.”
Furthermore, the opera singer was chastised for labeling Taylor Swift an SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and renouncing her fandom as a result.
