OK. Listen people. I don’t understand your obsession with Alexander Skarsgard, why he catapulted to the Pajiba 10 Hall of Fame, or even why anyone watches True Blood, but people gotta obsess over something. On the other hand, threatening his friend, who happens to be Ellen Page, is not cool.
The Tweet has since been deleted, but police are investigating a death threat Ellen Page received from someone who apparently doesn’t appreciate the fact that the diminutive Canadian actor — who has kind of disappeared, of late, save for Woody Allen’s latest movie — was seen taking in a sporting event with Skarsgard.
“I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead,” one message read, via ABC News.
“Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year … Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you’re signing autographs,” read another.
The last person ON EARTH I expected to receive a death threat was Ellen Page. She’s so kind. And Canadian. And adorable. Kidnapping threats? Sure! She fits in your pocket, after all. She’d look great on a shelf next to Amy Poehler and Danny Devito. You could make them put on plays. But death threats? Bah. That’s silly. STOP SCARING THE CELEBRITIES. Especially the timid ones.
