Emmy Rossum is shining a light on anti-Semitic internet trolls.
The “Shameless” star tweeted out an image she was sent by a Twitter user, which read: “This is all your ilk’s future, you will be seeing a train shortly. Hollywood days of subjugation is over! SEIG HEIL!” The image appears to show train tracks leading up to a concentration camp, with the words Trump Tower stamped on the front of the structure.

In a string of tweets that followed, Rossum, a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton, told the user to “back off.”
Telling anyone to “get ready for the trains” in reference to WWII is disgusting & offensive.Reporting you to twitter is not enough.Back off.— Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) November 13, 2016
This is 1 individual who targeted me. He since deleted the awful train pic. Why not check out the rest of his posts/likes @SpotEnemyBoats— Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) November 14, 2016
This doesn’t scare me. It doesn’t cause me nightmares. I find it sad to recognize that this kind of vicious underbelly was there all along.— Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) November 14, 2016
Last week, Rossum took to Twitter to explain just how important this election was to her—and what was at stake with Donald Trump’s win.
“I am a woman. I am Jewish. I am marrying an Arab American. My sister in law is handicapped. I’m a victim of sexual violence.” she wrote. “It’s personal.”
