Fox News guest Wendy Osefo marked the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination on Wednesday by posting a hateful threat she received from an angry Fox viewer.



“When you are one of the few black Democrats that appear on Fox News and use your voice and platform to speak out against racial and economic injustice, this is what you receive,” she wrote of the threat on her Instagram account.

“As we commemorate the legacy of MLK, we must remember that the fight for equity and equality continues. We must not fool ourselves to believe we live in a ‘post racial society’ or that the playing field is level because we elected a black president.”

The threat in question was an email that simply read, “Keep running your mouth, n*gger. Someone will introduce you to an AR-15.”

Osefo reacted defiantly to the threat and wrote on her Instagram account, “You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise.”

When you are one of the few black Democrats that appear on @foxnews and use your voice and platform to speak out against racial and economic injustice, this is what you receive. As we commemorate the legacy of #MLK50, we must remember that the fight for equity and equality continues. We must not fool ourselves to believe we live in a “post racial society” or that the playing field is level because we elected a black president. Now more than ever our lives, black lives are under attack by people and a system that views us as less than. 50 years after the death of Dr. King and we STILL have so far to go. I will always speak for the people. ✊🏾✊🏾 . . You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise.
