CNN primetime anchor Don Lemon received death threats from a white nationalist that were so severe, he contacted the New York Police Department on Wednesday, TMZ reports.

According to law enforcement sources, Lemon received multiple threatening Twitters messages, including “Fuck you n***** can’t wait to stab your neck,” as well as “”U r a pile of rotting Dogshit,racist,communist, socialist, Liberal moron asshole,i will find u U will pay.ill see u real soon…”

His Twitter profile notes he is a racist: “white nationalist conservative . pro gun anti islam anti terrorist anti leftist yes i HATE demorats,blm,antifa ,socialists. heavily armed racist.WLM.”

While Lemon’s report was filed as aggravated harrassment, TMZ sources say it’ll likely be considered a hate crime.

The investigation is still on going, and Lemon didn’t respond to a request for comment.
