In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Lana revealed the extent at which the fans have taken the recent storyline between her and Rusev.
Lana revealed that she has actually had death threats from fans that have been so serious that the FBI have had to get involved in the situation.
“I personally have received a lot of death threats,” she said. “I’ve gotten calls from like WWE and the FBI, people actually threatening WWE. Having death threats on me and the FBI has had to call me and protect me. And I get death threats on my comments on Instagram, on Twitter. I mean, people are bullies. I mean today I opened my email account and I had this death threat on my email. But it was just like the names that people call are just, it’s just appalling. It’s absolutely appalling.”
Lana revealed she is speaking out about the situation because of how serious cyber-bullying is in the world now.
She continued, “You know, cyber-bullying is a big cause of suicide and I just wanna speak out on it, as like, that is really, really, really wrong. It’s completely wrong. People really need to think before they comment. Because all they’re doing is they’re hiding behind a screen and they’re just, they’re being mean. And you know, do people want to be responsible for people killing themselves? I’m going to continue to strongly speak out about it because I think that there’s a lot, a lot of people that are victims of cyber-bullying and it really affects their entire life and it’s wrong and it needs to stop”
