Ellen Page, star of films such as "Juno" and "Inception," has been repeatedly harassed by a crazed fan making death threats via Twitter during the past few months.
Understandably freaked out, Page has turned to the Los Angeles Police Department for help in tracking down the person behind the tweets.
The death threats came from two different Twitter accounts apparently used only for directing threats at Page. The LAPD has requested that Twitter turn over all information relating to the two accounts in question.
While the LAPD has not released the names of the accounts, TMZ has posted the full text of two of the threatening tweets, and they are certainly unnerving.
"I'm going to murder Ellen Page. She's dead," read one.
"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 the other.
According to TMZ, the tweets have been removed and the accounts used to post them may have been shut down.
However, Twitter maintains information on Internet protocol, or IP, addresses of former accounts, and it may be able to help the LAPD at least get a better idea of the violent fan's location.
The Twitter threats come on the heels of an anonymous phone call to the organizers of the Los Angeles Film Festival. Page's latest movie, "To Rome with Love," premiered at the festival, and, before the event, its organizers received a phone call from someone threatening to kill Page during the festival, TMZ reported. The June 14 premiere of the flick came and went without incident.
The LAPD is continuing to investigate the matter.
