Emmy Rossum Says She Received Anti-Semitic Threats From Trump Supporters

Emmy Rossum has become a victim of harassment following President-elect Donald Trump’s Election Day victory, she said over the weekend.

The “Shameless” actress took to Twitter to detail anti-semitic messages she allegedly received via the social media platform. Her reports of the harassment include a picture, now deleted by the poster, depicting what looks like a concentration camp with a Photoshopped “Trump Tower” logo placed at the top.

“No matter WHO you voted for, I don’t care, THIS is not okay. ‘You will be seeing a train shortly,'” tweeted Rossum.

Though Rossum aimed to shed light on the incident, she made clear that she would not let them intimidate her.

“This doesn’t scare me. It doesn’t cause me nightmares. I find it sad to recognize that this kind of vicious underbelly was there all along,” she tweeted.

Rossum isn’t the only Hollywood figure to report receiving hateful message since Election Day. “Silicon Valley” stars Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch also reported being harassed by Donald Trump supporters after being called “cucks” while out at a bar in Los Angeles last week.

Read Rossum’s string of tweets below:

“Trump supporters are sending me messages threatening to send me & my ‘ilk’ to the gas chambers & writing hashtags like ‘#sieghiel’. NOT OK.”

“Telling anyone to ‘get ready for the trains’ in reference to WWII is disgusting & offensive.Reporting you to twitter is not enough.Back off.”

“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”

“This is 1 individual who targeted me. He since deleted the awful train pic. Why not check out the rest of his posts/likes @SpotEnemyBoats

“No matter WHO you voted for, I don’t care, THIS is not okay. ‘You will be seeing a train shortly'”

“This doesn’t scare me. It doesn’t cause me nightmares. I find it sad to recognize that this kind of vicious underbelly was there all along.”
