X-men star Ellen Page has been receiving death threats on her Instagram account, prompting the Los Angeles Police Department to launch an investigation, MailOnline reported.
One Instagram user expressed the need to pursue the 30-year-old actor and post photos of her death online as evidence.
According to TMZ, one threat read: “I find Ellen and kidnap her and kill her throat and let everyone see it on my Instagram [sic].”
The actor who played Kitty Pryde in X-Men was also labelled a “b****’” and a “lying worthless Canadian” by the Instagram user, who claimed she must “die in my hands”.
Despite the threats, the actress has defiantly continued to post pictures on her social media account as she shared her last post in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police ascertained a search warrant in June and are reportedly on the hunt to trace the IP address of the Instagram user who made the threats.
However, no arrests to date have been made in connection with the death threats.
Ellen’s return to Instagram signals a busy time for the star, who has two films Flatliners and Mercy set to be released later this year.
Earlier this month, Ellen scooped an Emmy Award nomination for her globe-trotting docu-series Gaycation, which is an unstructured reality show.
The beauty was seen celebrating her nod with a passionate smooch with dancer Emma Portner outside the Café Gratitude located in LGBTQ-friendly West Hollywood.
The kiss appears to signal an end to her long-term relationship with artist and surfer Samantha Thomas as they were last pictured together in January.
The Oscar nominee famously came out three years ago during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s ‘Time to Thrive’ conference in Las Vegas.
“I’m so stoked to get married,” Ellen told THR that same year.
“I’m such a romantic, it’s awful. And I don’t think I’d want to make a kid, but I’d love to raise one. I’d love to raise a kid.”
Ellen was linked to several men including Mark Rendall, Alexander Skarsgard, Elijah Wood, Ben Foster, Sam Riley, Frankie Muniz, and Emile Hirsch.
