Taylor Swift and Gigi Hadid have been plagued by online death threats.
Accord to TMZ, Swift and her posse of superstars have faced multiple threats on social media. Apparently, an internet troll has been threatening to kill them. In response, the police are trying their best to track the person down.
The mystery person has targeted several members of Swift’s crew, including Hadid and Cara Delevingne.
“I will kill some of you,” the person posted on Hadid’s Twitter page. “people got did they’re gone die die die die!”
The unnamed troll also had a few words to share about Delevingne.
“I will kill your friends and I am excited about it,” he told the actress.
The death threats first surface in regards to director Kyle Newman’s wife Jamie King, who also received similar threats from the unnamed source.
So far, the police have looked through the Twitter accounts in order to find any clues that might lead them to the mystery troll. Unfortunately, the cops have been unable to find anything that might reveal the person’s identity and lead to an arrest.
According to the New York Daily News, Hadid and Delevingne both appeared alongside Swift in her music video, “Bad Blood.” They are also a part of Swift’s famous squad.
Along with the three women, Chrissy Teigen has also faced similar threats from the same person. The individual told the model and TV host that he was “gonna give it one shot, but I probably gonna end up murdering your friends.”
The police are taking the threats very seriously. At the same time, Hollywood Life reports that the cops have obtained a search warrant to help track down the Twitter threats. Are they really in danger?
Considering the nature of the threats, it is possible that the person behind the threats has very real intentions to do harm to Swift and her friends.
Although police are not any closer to tracking the guy down, the warrant and Twitter records should provide enough hints to prevent anything bad from happening.
Thankfully, Swift is known to have really good security around her at all times, which should be able to handle anything that is thrown her way.
That being said, the threats do come at a bad time for the pop star. Just last week, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, was in a terrible car accident. With so much going wrong at the moment, an insider revealed that Taylor is very worried.
“Taylor has told Calvin that she doesn’t want him doing anything for the next few days, and when she sees him, she will be waiting on him hand and foot,” the source shared. “Calvin doesn’t want a fuss made, but she’s not going to give him any choice in that matter. She will be catering to him for everything.”
At this point, it isn’t clear if Taylor is taking any preventative measures against the online threats. Furthermore, neither Hadid nor Delevingne have addressed what they are doing to guard against potential disaster.
Of course, there is a possibility that the internet troll is just playing a bad joke on the girls. After all, this wouldn’t be the first time someone has used the internet in poor taste.
Until more information about the person is revealed, Swift and the police are definitely going to take the threats seriously and try their best to track down the troll.
Hopefully, authorities can use social media to track down the guy before he follows through with his threats. Until then, Swift and the rest of her squad are sure to be on high alert in the coming weeks.
