Piers Morgan has warned that “cowardly threats have consequences” after it was reported that a troll has been arrested over allegedly making death threats against him.
The troll also threatened Morgan’s 28-year-old son Spencer, who was told that he would “get it” if his dad did not.
The Sun reported that a suspect has been arrested for allegedly making death threats.
Morgan told the paper - where he is returning as a columnist - that a line had to be "drawn" when it came to trolls.
“People think it’s perfectly OK to make death threats to public figures on social media but it’s not - there has to be a line drawn, especially when family members are targeted," he said.
“That’s why I reported it and I am grateful to the Met Police and Greater Manchester Police for taking it so seriously.”
Morgan also addressed the allegations on Twitter.
Sharing a picture of The Sun's article, he wrote: “Cowardly threats have consequences.”
The Metropolitan Police and Greater Manchester Police have been contacted for confirmation.
