Who is Abbie Chatfield: Australian influencer and reality television star Abbie Chatfield took to social media Wednesday to tell followers she had received an alleged death threat online. As per the screenshot she posted on her Instagram story, the threat appeared to imply that people knew her home address.
“Watch your back door, could be now or in five years from now hahaha they’re watching you,” the message from an account with zero followers and posts read. “Good luck, you will need it,” it added.
Reports suggest the alleged threat came from an anti-vaxxer, given that 26-year-old Chatfield is a vocal health and body positivity advocate on social media. She boasts of over 3,60,000 followers on Instagram where she received threatening messages.
Chatfield, through the pandemic, has held a pro-vaccine stance, urging followers to take the jab to protect themselves against COVID-19.
“Any suggestions of how to deal with this?” she asked, alongside the screenshot consisting the threat.
In further stories, she claimed she had approached the police with regard to the messages she received but that action in cases of anonymous threats wasn’t satisfactory and police ended up gaslighting the complainant or telling them to stop being dramatic and block the troll.
Back in October too, Chatfield had revealed that she was the target of anti-vaxxers sending her death threats.
