American actress and socialite Paris Hilton was threatened on social media by a man who believes she is Jewish.
“I know ur Jew family gives nothing” and “KILL JEWS FOR FUN” are among the threats that have been left on the Instagram account of Hilton and her father, Rick, TMZ reported Tuesday. The man also has threatened to kill and rape Paris Hilton.
The family filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department, which has obtained a search warrant to allow it to track down the Instagram and Facebook accounts of the man threatening them.
“We recently filed a police report because the threats were getting out of control, getting more frequent and more intensive each time.” Hilton told Entertainment Tonight
“It’s a frightening and scary experience for anyone and so we decided to take steps to protect our family,” she added. “Hopefully now the authorities are aware they can help put an end to this.”
