In the words of Emmy Rossum, this is not ok.
The actress has been getting violent anti-Semitic threats from Trump supporters on Twitter. The hateful threats reference gas chambers from the Holocaust and send Trump images along with the tweets.
Emmy has recently began shedding light on the horrible incidents, writing,
“Trump supporters are sending me messages threatening to send me & my “ilk” to the gas chambers & writing hashtags like “#sieg hiel”. NOT OK. Trump supporters are sending me messages threatening to send me & my “ilk” to the gas chambers & writing hashtags like “#sieg hiel”. NOT OK.”
Apparently some of her followers accused her of lying because she felt the need to add,
“I would NEVER make something like this up. I couldn’t. For those of you who are shaming me for bringing attention to it, go read his feed.”
She then proceeded to show screenshots of his tweets, which included images of death camps with pro-Trump flags.
She ended by writing, “No matter WHO you voted for, I don’t care, THIS is not okay.”
We sincerely hope that whoever is doing this stops the hate because it’s absolutely despicable. Bravo to Emmy for bringing attention to this because we know that she is not the only one experiencing such extreme racism after the election.
