Comment content extra slashed #97

I believe I'm having the same issue but with double quotation marks.
Using the built-in commenting system, comments are adding the backslash character to double quotation marks. I am using WordPress 4.8.2 and Semantic Linkbacks Version 3.4.0.
On the website with this plugin activated, someone goes to a blog post and writes a comment with a set of double quotations. When they submit the comment, the page reloads and shows the comment including backslashes for each double quotation used.
When going to the Dashboard Comments section to manipulate or approve the comment, I edit the comment to delete the backslashes. When I save the corrected comment without the backslashes, on reload it shows the same backslashes that I deleted added back in. If I edit the comment again and make no changes, I then see a total of three backslashes per double quotation. Same process then shows five backslashes. And so on.
The only resolution is the deactivate the plugin.
I haven't tested the above suggested fix but if that works I'd be happy to submit a pull request.
