Emmy Rossum Reports Disgusting Anti-Semitic Threats From Trump Supporters on Twitter

Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum has allegedly received a barrage of anti-Semitic threats following Donald Trump‘s election last week (ends13Nov16).

The Shameless actress took to the micro-blogging site on Wednesday (09Nov16) when Trump was declared America’s President-elect to express her sadness at the election result and reveal it felt personal to her as a Jewish woman with an Arab American fiancé.

Over the coming days, she told her followers she had received hateful messages by writing, “I don’t have enough time in the day to block all these folks” and on Sunday (13Nov16) she shared a screen grab of a tweet she received from one user, who has since had their account suspended after the star reported them to Twitter.

They allegedly sent her a picture of the main train entrance of the Auschwitz–Birkenau concentration camp, which had been edited to feature the words “Trump” on either side of the main arch, followed by the message, “This is in all of your ilk’s future, you will all be seeing a train shortly (sic). Hollywood days of subjugation is over! SEIG HEIL! (Common Nazi chant meaning Hail Victory!)” 

“Trump supporters are sending me messages threatening to send me & my ‘ilk’ to the gas chambers & writing hashtags like ‘#sieg hiel’. NOT OK,” she tweeted. “Telling anyone to ‘get ready for the trains’ in reference to WWII is disgusting & offensive.Reporting you to twitter is not enough.Back off.

“No matter WHO you voted for, I don’t care, THIS is not okay… This doesn’t scare me. It doesn’t cause me nightmares. I find it sad to recognise that this kind of vicious underbelly was there all along.”

She also replied to another user to explain her rant has nothing to do with the election and she will not “move on” from a stranger sending her personal threats and harassing her.

Following the result, she told her followers she was struggling to comprehend how so many Americans felt differently about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“I am a woman. I am Jewish. I am marrying an Arab American. My sister in law is handicapped. I’m a victim of sexual violence. It’s personal,” she tweeted.
