Don Lemon has been the victim of a string of racist death threats sent by a self-proclaimed white nationalist and Trump supporter. Apparently, the threats were so extreme that he contacted police about them earlier this week.
TMZ reports that Lemon called the NYPD yesterday after allegedly receiving a bunch of creepy messages from someone on Twitter who described themselves as a “white nationalist conservative . pro gun anti islam anti terrorist anti leftist yes i HATE demorats,blm,antifa ,socialists. heavily armed racist.WLM.”
The messages said things like “F*ck you n*gg*r can’t wait to stab your neck” and “U r a pile of rotting Dogsh*t,racist,communist, socialist, Liberal moron asshole,i will find u U will pay.ill see u real soon…”
The NYPD report was made for aggravated harassment, but sources say it will likely be treated as a hate crime.
Lemon, who has been a vocal critic of Trump ever since he took office in January, has not issued a comment on the matter.
Police say the investigation is still ongoing and that no arrests have been made.
