Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis fears for her life after receiving death threats from Young Thug's fans.

Willis indicted Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 others on RICO racketeering violations and gang activity on May 9.

Willis said Young Thug and the members of his Young Slime Life (YSL) gang were responsible for 80% of murders and gun violence across Atlanta.

She told Channel 2 Action News that she increased her security and is taking extra measures to protect her family due to death threats.

"I'm much more cautious than I've ever been in my life, paying more attention to my surroundings" Willis said. "It's required for me to stay alive."

She said the death threats are coming from fans who are "sympathetic" of the people who were indicted.

"We don't believe that these threats were directed by anyone that is in the YSL indictment," Willis said. "I would say that (threats are from) people that are very sympathetic, maybe admirers of YSL and people who are connected with them in some sense."

One suspect gave instructions on how to locate Willis' Atlanta area home, leading to increased police patrols at her home and license plate readers installed nearby.

Additionally, she is receiving harsh comments from Donald Trump supporters after she announced a special grand jury is investigating whether the former President interfered in the presidential elections in Georgia in 2020.

Willis is taking all threats very seriously. Her extensive security detail is a joint effort between the City of South Fulton, the Atlanta Police Department, the Fulton County Police Department and the Fulton County Sheriff's Office, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Fulton County Sheriff's Office

The mother of a DeKalb County teenager who threatened the lives of the Fulton County Sheriff and his wife spoke out in defense of her son.

Quartavius Mender, 18, was arrested after he allegedly made several death threats toward Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat and his wife, Jacki Labat.

According to 11Alive News, the teenager demanded the release of rapper Young Thug, who is being held in the Cobb County Detention Center on felony RICO racketeering charges.

"#freethug or Imma sh00t u and your wife," Mender wrote, according to arrest warrants reviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He allegedly wrote on the sheriff's Instagram page, saying, "Imma assassinate you."

Young Thug (pictured) and rapper Gunna are among 28 people charged in a sweeping 88-page indictment last month.

Mender is charged with 23 counts of making terroristic threats toward the sheriff and his wife in several social media posts in May.

"We've known about these threats for a week or so," Sheriff Labat told Shelley Wynter, co-host of WSB Radio's "Word On the Street," on Friday.

"These were public social media threats. I call it cyberbullying. It was on our social media - both mine, my wife's, as well as the public Fulton County Sheriff's Office social media. Mostly on Instagram."

Labat added: "I signed up for this. But, you cross the line when you start talking about my family, my wife... How smart can you be to threaten the sheriff? You know how I am about my wife. We're not taking anything for granted."

Mender's mother, Malaika Kulenga, and his sister, Deniecia Kelly, told 11Alive that Mender has a history of bipolar disorder, for which he is being treated. They said he is not connected to any gang.

11Alive also spoke with Mender on the phone from the jail. He said that even though his cousin, who shares the same last name, is among the alleged gang members indicted along with Young Thug, he has never been close to that cousin.

Mender insists he didn't make any death threats on Instagram.

11Alive asked Mender why he thinks investigators traced the death threats to him.

"I really don't know. It wasn't me," Mender said. "I'm not a part of no gang, I'm not a part of YSL, I'm not part of nothing."

Mender's mother and sister think investigators are charging anyone they think can testify against Young Thug or Gunna, the alleged ring leaders of Young Slime Life street gang.

"Young Thug don't know him," Deniecia Kelly said of her brother. "He don't know Young Thug. He don't know nobody. They can't trace a phone call or a message or nothing with anybody affiliated with YSL."

"My son is really a person that really needs help," Mender's mother, Malaika Kulenga, said. "Right now, what they're doing is trying to put him in this situation, but he has nothing to do with it. He can't tell them anything because there's nothing to tell. There's nothing. So he's not a part of any gang, he's not a gang member."

Mender is being held without bail in the Fulton County Jail.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office charged Quartavius Mender, 18, with making death threats against Fulton County Sheriff Patrick "Pat" Labat and his wife, Jacki Labat.

Mender is charged with 23 felony counts for making terroristic threats, Channel 2 Action News reports.

The teen is accused of threatening to kill the Labats if a certain high-ranking member of the Young Slim Life (YSL) record label and street gang wasn't released from the Fulton County Jail.

The death threats were made in social media posts, according to sources.

"We take these kinds of brazen threats seriously," Sheriff Pat Labat told reporters. "Social media cyberbullying, and hiding behind a keyboard will not protect someone from criminal prosecution. Our investigators are diligent in seeking individuals who mean to do harm to anybody, and I am grateful to them for ensuring the safety of myself, my wife, and all citizens of Fulton County."

Rappers Young Thug and Gunna are among 28 people charged with violating Georgia's RICO laws in a sweeping 88-page indictment last month.

Gunna, who turned himself in on May 11, is housed at the Fulton County Jail, while Young Thug was transferred to the notorious Cobb County Detention Center near Atlanta on May 13.

According to Channel 2 Action News, one of the names listed in the indictment is Tenquarius Mender, who is housed at the Fulton County Jail. Channel 2 is working to confirm if Quartavius Mender and Tenquarius Mender are related.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has accused YSL gang members of committing over 50 murders and gun violence across Atlanta since 2012.

Young Thug, born Jeffery Williams, was again denied bond during an hours-long hearing before a Superior Court judge in Atlanta on Thursday, June 2.

The rapper watched the hearing remotely from a small room at the Cobb County Detention Center for nearly 10 hours.

The judge denied bond even though Young Thug's attorneys promised to hire a team of off-duty law enforcement officers to guard him 24 hours a day during home confinement.

Attorney Brian Steel said his client offered to be on house arrest at any one of his four Atlanta-area homes before trial, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Like this n*gga Puffy is the main muthaf*ckin' reason why I hate f*cking life, dawg. People don't even understand. Like, I don't even give a f*ck. I've never been to a point where I thought of suicide my whole life, never. I mean, I'm a gangsta."

Social media users pleaded with Combs to help Freddy. However, the rap mogul refused to take responsibility for a grown man's situation.

"STOP ALL YOUR CRYING, BITCHING & MOANING. HUSTLE HARDER OR GET THE F*CK OUT OF OUR WAY. – LOVE," Combs posted on his Instagram Stories.

Combs didn't comment on Freddy P's not-so-subtle death threats to him.

Pete Davidson fears for his life after rap producer Ye threatened him on a new track.

In a new track, titled "My Life Was Never Eazy," Ye raps "God saved me from that crash/ just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass."

The lyric references Ye's near-death experience after a serious car crash in 2002.

The song, a collabo with rapper The Game, is expected to be released on Friday.

A source tells Page Six that Pete isn't afraid of Ye, he's worried about Ye's fans who might want to impress their idol.

"Pete thinks it's totally hilarious," an insider told Page Six, "Not just that — he thinks the whole [tabloid drama with him, West and Kardashian] is hilarious. He loves it."

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

"It's funny to him that the press wants to know his every move all of a sudden," said the source.

The press wants to know his every move because he's currently dating Ye's estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

Kim, 41, filed for divorce from Ye, 44, in February 2021 after 7 years of marriage. They share 4 children.

DC Comics

DC Comics employees reached out to the LAPD for protection after receiving death threats from Superman fans.

Last month, DC Comics announced the new Superman, Jon Kent was bisexual in celebration of National Coming Out Day.

Jon Kent, Clark Kent/Superman's son with Lois Lane, falls in love with a twink newspaper reporter in the November 9 issue of the comic book series "Superman: Son of Kal-El."

While many in the LGBT+ community celebrated the news, some Superman fans were unhappy, according to the New York Daily News.

WENN.com

Actor Dean Cain, who played Clark Kent in the 1990s TV series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" was offended.

During an appearance on "Fox & Friends First" last month, Cain said bisexual Superman was neither "bold or brave".

"If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave. But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran where they'll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay."

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that LAPD officers patrolled outside the homes of some DC Comics employees who worked on the new comic series.

The LAPD said no one followed through on the death threats and the case is considered resolved.

Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, has agreed to step down after 13 years as her estate conservator.

The shocking announcement comes after a California judge denied Britney's motion to remove her father as her conservator last month.

Britney filed a motion to remove her father from the controlling role he has held over her for 13 years.

Her new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, argued that Jamie Spears' presence caused his client anxiety and many sleepless nights.

In new legal documents, Jamie's lawyer revealed his client is tired of the "unremitting" and "unjustified attacks" by Britney's vocal supporters and members of his own family.

Kevin Winter/Getty Images

Court documents obtained by TMZ read:

"There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate... and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears' best interests.

"Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests. So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator."

The lawyer adds:

"Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears' father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests."

Rosengart responded to the news by telling TMZ:

"We are pleased but not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his lawyer finally recognize that he must be removed. We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others..."

Back in June, when Britney first testified against her father, she said her conservatorship had left her "traumatized" and "depressed", and she called for her father to be jailed.

She argued that her father controls every aspect of her life including who she can date and whether she can have more children. Britney, a mom-of-two, is forced to wear an IUD for birth control. The singer who is worth $60 million receives a $2,000 weekly allowance.

"They have me going to therapy three times a week and to a psychiatrist... I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive," she told the court. "I don't feel like I can live a full life... I need your help. My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management... they should be in jail."

The FBI is investigating death threats sent by Britney's fans to Los Angeles Country Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny, who is Black.

Britney is best known for her pop hits "Baby One More Time" and "Oops!...I Did it Again," which each sold over 20 million copies worldwide.

Lil Nas X refuses to talk about homophobia in rap, because he's getting death threats and he fears for his life.

The openly ghey country trap star has already irked fellow rappers with his flamboyant "Industry Baby" and "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" music videos.

In the "Industry Baby" music video, LNX danced naked in a prison shower with other nude inmates. That scene in particular didn't go over very well with super straight rappers such as DaBaby and Boosie Badazz.

LNX also stirred up controversy at the recent BET Awards by French kissing a male dancer onstage.

LGBT+ groups praised LNX and asked him to do more to decrease LGBT+ stigma by discussing homophobia in hip-hop.

However, the "Old Town Road," star tells Variety.com he's not willing to go that far after receiving threats.

"The honest truth is, I don't want to speak on a lot of the homophobia within rap because I feel like this is a very dangerous playing field... It's more for my own safety rather than anything else."

LNX reveals that after the "Montero" video was released, in which he gives Satan a lap dance, someone chased his car, yelling abuse at him.

LNX didn't reveal the names of rappers who recently threatened him with bodily harm.

"That's when I actually started getting security," he said.

Rapper Boosie Badazz (pictured) recently went on a homophobic rant against LNX after fellow rapper DaBaby was canceled.

"If I was DaBaby, I'll tell them f**k y'all," said Boosie in defense of DaBaby on Instagram Live.

"Lil Nas, they want to perform naked for charity... That's the most disrespectful [expletive] in the world.... They got kids who watch that sh*t," he said, before urging LNX to give head on IG.

Boosie called LNX a "fa**ot" and said he would "beat up" the 22-year-old rapper on sight.

After Boosie's rant, Instagram deleted his account for the 4th time this year.

Kenosha County Jail

Prosecutors issued a new arrest warrant for Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with fatally shooting two Antifa/Black Lives Matter activists during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August.

Prosecutors seek to revoke Rittenhouse's $2 million cash bond because they say he violated his bond by failing to update his address.

Sympathetic citizens helped raise Rittenhouse's $2 million bond because they believe he was defending himself against armed hooligans.

Kyle is forced to move to a new address due to death threats from Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists. But prosecutors say the teen failed to update his new address within 48 hours of moving.

A motion filed with Judge Bruce Schroeder seeks to increase Rittenhouse's cash bail by $200,000.

Rittenhouse's lawyer, Mark Richards, responded to the motion, saying his client moved into "an undisclosed Safe House," because whenever he updates his address in the system -- the new address is somehow leaked.

Richards said he gave prosecutors the new address in November and asked them to keep it a secret but they refused.

Prosecutors say they realized Rittenhouse was no longer living at his Antioch address when they mailed him a court notice and it came back as undeliverable.

Richards provided the new address to the judge as part of a motion requesting it be sealed.

The mayor of a small town in Kansas resigned her position after receiving death threats following a city commission vote forcing residents to wear masks.

Dodge City Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigned Tuesday, citing concerns for her safety. Her resignation is effective immediately, Yahoo News reports.

Warshaw was one of the city commission members who voted to force a mask mandate on the town. But town residents didn't take the news sitting down.

"I understand people are under a lot of pressure from various things that are happening around society like the pandemic," Warshaw said in her resignation letter. "I think it's best for me and the city that I love to remove myself from the commission at this time and from the mayorship so that the city can move forward and be the best that it can be because I believe in the city."

Warshaw tendered her resignation following the Dec. 11 publication of a USA TODAY article in which she tried to shed a positive light on the mask mandate.

"We just felt like we had to do something so everybody was aware of how important it was for everybody to be responsible for each other’s health and well-being," said Warshaw in the USA TODAY story.

After the article was published, the mayor received a flood of hate emails and phone calls from residents, some making threats on her life. The threatening emails were turned over to police.

In an interview with the Dodge City Daily Globe, Warshaw broke down in tears as she explained her reason for resigning.

"This is harder for me than people realize. I really love this city with all my heart. I still believe in this city and I believe in their ability to not harm one another."

Unlike blue states where the Corona "cases" are surging despite forced mandates, corona deaths remain low in Georgia and Florida where there are no mask mandates or lockdowns.

Ricky Schroder is facing death threats after his hefty donation helped teenager Kyle Rittenhouse bond out of a Wisconsin jail on Friday, Nov. 20.

Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested in August and charged in the shooting deaths of 2 Antifa activists during Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha.

His $2 million cash bond was raised mostly through public donations to crowdfunding websites and the generosity of millionaires like Schroder and Mike Lindell, CEO and founder of MY Pillow.

Now Schroder is receiving death threats on social media, and Twitter users are posting his address online.

Schroder, 50, retweeted some of the threats on Twitter.com alongside a photo of himself armed with a Mossberg shotgun.

He captioned the post: "To my Democrat Friends. This is the country want to live in? #f-ckantifa."

One Twitter user wrote: "Ricky's house is clearly listed online. Hopefully a patriot will scope out Ricky and report back. Ricky and his disgusting coffee should pay for the murder and terrorism they support. We the people pray Ricky gets what he deserves..."

Another user tweeted: "Have some exciting things planned for Lil Ricky. Lots of people looking for justice. We will see you soon Ricky and make an example of you. Good luck terrorist..."

Schroder is best known as the child star of the film The Champ, starring Jon Voight and Faye Dunaway (1979) and the television series Silver Spoons (1986-1987).

Rapper Meek Mill apparently knocked up another woman after welcoming his first child with ex-fiancee Milano Harris (pictured).

According to ItsOnSite, a gossip hip-hop site run by rapper Rah Ali, Meek, 33, is expecting his third child with an unnamed woman.

The news comes after Meek reportedly broke up with Harris after less than a year of dating.

"Hey Girl, So word on the street it that Meek Mill has another baby and before it leaks out to the media he wanted it to be known that him and Malino are not together so social media won’t bash him. I'll keep you posted," wrote the source.

Meek recently confirmed his split from Harris, saying they will co-parent their little one as single parents.

In unrelated news, Instagram blogger DJ Akademiks, also known as DJ Ak, called the po-po on Meek for issuing threats that Ak is taking very seriously.

The DJ, real name Livingston Allen, recently lost his job at Complex, and was banned from Twitch after he sneak-dissed effeminate singer John Legend and disrespected his wife, Chrissy, on a livestream.

Ak took to social media and blamed Meek for his misfortunes. He didn't go into detail about how Meek got him fired.

Ak called Meek a "hypocrite," which led to Meek giving the streets the "green light" to cause great bodily harm if they see Ak on the block.

Ak called the police (as any smart person would do) to file a report just in case he goes missing.

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."
