Shaun King fears for his life after he discovered a private Facebook group plotting to take him out.

The transracial activist says the private group is run by law enforcement officials who wrote comments discussing ways to kill him.

"A private Facebook group of law enforcement officers is literally plotting to kill me," King wrote in a post on Instagram on Thursday. "Sadly, I receive death threats daily."
 

The 40-year-old Kentucky native angered Christians when he called for protesters to tear down statues of "white" Jesus Christ and destroy stained glass windows and other images of Jesus and his "white" mother.

The transracial Caucasian activist, who claims to be a Black man, says historians believe Jesus likely had the appearance of people who typically lived in the Middle East rather than the white, bearded man depicted in the Holy Bible and other Christian literature.

"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been."

He added: "In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down."

King took to Twitter to complain that he received death threats after his anti-religion rant was not well-received.

Screen grab: NBC Today Show

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who leads the U.S. government's response to the coronavirus, confirms he is getting death threats for his doomsday coronavirus estimates.

The immunologist, who served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, was issued bodyguards after he received death threats for his doomsday predictions that millions will die from the virus that causes Covid-19.

Fauci, who is accused of overhyping the coronavirus to stay in front of cameras, confirmed he received "disturbing messages" from Americans who want the country reopened after losing their jobs.

Fauci appeared pale and exhausted as he spoke during a White House press briefing on Tuesday. When asked why his voice was hearse, Fauci said he has given too many interviews.

"I've chosen this life," Fauci told NBC 'Today Show' host Savannah Guthrie. "We have a really, really very difficult situation ahead of us. All that other stuff is secondary," he said, before adding he is physically fine.

The U.S. death toll reached 5,000 as the confirmed cases surpassed 216,000. Still, the death toll is a mere 0.00015% of the U.S. population and many of the confirmed cases have recovered.

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and millions more will be on the unemployment lines in the coming weeks. A record 10 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits in the last 3 weeks.

There are as many Fauci critics as there are admirers. Some believe he is enjoying the media attention.

"How is he working [on] the issue when all he's doing is giving interviews and going on talk shows?" wrote one Daily Mail reader in the comments section.

Another commenter wrote: "stop relying on a little man with a huge EGO for your information. Research your questions online for FREE."

And a third wrote: "Maybe if he didn't step in front of every microphone [scaring] people might help the problem."
