Ellen Page has a stalker who threatened online to kill her, and now the courts are striking back at the man.
A judge ordered the man, Joshua Michael Myers, to stay away from Ellen Page and not contact her in any way for three years.
The action against Ellen Page’s stalker came after he posted messages about her on Twitter, things like “I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead.”
Another tweet referenced her relationship with her co-star from The East:
“Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in then ext year … Be it in a club, in a restaurant, or when you’re signing autographs.”
This caused the Los Angeles Police Department to start an investigation about the threats, sending the information to the micr0-blogging site Twitter to get more information about the account that sent the threatening messages. Using that information, they found a trail that led them to Myers, TMZ reported. They also found that he may have made a threatening phone call or two to the Juno actress.
“According to the LAPD, the threats also coincided with a creepy telephone call received by the non-profit that organizes the LA Film Festival, where Ellen’s new movie “To Rome with Love” premiered on June 14th. The LAPD claims the caller promised to go to the festival and ‘kill Page.’ “
