Taylor Swift and her glam friends are being threatened by an internet troll on Twitter. The troll has sent death threats to her, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and others.
Taylor Swift and other A-listers are at the receiving end of some extremely disturbing threats on Twitter. The internet troll has targeted Jamie King and Chrissy Teigen in addition to Taylor Swift and her girl squad consisting of Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid.
Daily Mail reveals that though Teigen is not a part of Swift’s squad, she received a vile message. “Gonna give it one shot, but I probably gonna end up murdering your friends,” said the message. Jamie King too received a similar message. That is when her husband, director Kyle Newman, went to the police.
According to News.com.au, this troll has targeted a number of female celebrities. “I will kill some of you,” says the message sent to Swift. A similar message sent to Hadid states “people gon (sic) die they’re gon die die die die!” Supermodel Cara Delevingne too received a tweet message that states “I will kill your friends and I am excited about it.”
Nobody knows how or why these particular celebs have been targeted. While Jamie King is married to Kyle Newman, Chrissy Teigen had a baby with husband R&B star John Legend. Model Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez form a part of Taylor Swift’s girl squad. But there has been no news whether the two have received threats so far.
Police have started their investigation and already have the warrant to search through Twitter records. However, they do not have a suspect so far. Cosmopolitan states that nobody deserves to be harassed online.
Writer Ellen Scott wonders why and how people are allowed to continue with tweeting even after making their first threat. She wonders if the social medium needs to ramp up its policies as soon as possible to close down instances of harassment.
