Actress Target Of Twitter Threats

Posted on August 6, 2012 | Written By: iadminlaw

Remember the 2007 movie “Juno” starring Ellen Page who played the role of Juno MacGuff? It’s a modern coming-of-age story in which 16-year-old Juno learns that she’s pregnant from a one-time sexual encounter with her best friend, Paulie Bleeker. Juno and Paulie like each other, but they don’t consider themselves to be a couple and they’re certainly not ready to have a child yet. Although she would rather not be pregnant, Juno is fairly realistic about her situation. Initially she decides that she will have an abortion, but that’s something that she ultimately cannot go through with. She decides to have the baby and give it up for adoption instead. The next step is to find prospective parents for the yet unborn child. On her own choosing, Juno enters into a closed rather than open adoption contract with the Lorings – meaning she will have no contact with the baby after she gives it up.

Los Angeles police detectives are investigating a series of death threats sent to actress Ellen Page on Twitter that coincided with calls to the L.A. Film Festival making similar pledges to kill the “Juno” star.

In one of the Tweets, the suspect declares, “I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead.”

LAPD Threat Management Unit detectives began investigating the messages in June, Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said, but authorities would not elaborate on the details of the probe.

Detectives in the case sought a search a warrant to trace the Twitter accounts of the sender.

Page’s management team, after learning of the threats, alerted Twitter and the police detectives who specialize in such threats.

According to the search warrant, in addition to the Twitter threats, organizers of the L.A. Film Festival also received threatening phone calls regarding Page. Her movie, “To Rome With Love,” premiered at the festival in June.

According to the search warrant affidavit, the anonymous caller threatened to kill Page, who was nominated for a lead actress Oscar for her role in 2007’s “Juno.”
