The Web profile of the Internet troll was exposed by Jared Yates-Sexton, a creative writing professor at Georgia Southern University. Trump tweeted out the video over the weekend after a week in which he attacked the media, including savaging an MSNBC host for her appearance.
Trump has tweeted and re-tweeted content from anti-Semitic and racist sources before, including during the campaign, when he tweeted out an image about Hillary Clinton that showed a pile of money along with a six-pointed star that resembled a Star of David.
Yates-Sexton said that he had been threatened after exposing the anti-Semitic memes.
Exposing an antisemitic and a racist now equals being threatened with death and your body never being discovered. Think about that.— Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) July 3, 2017
Yesterday I broke the news that the guy who made Trump’s CNN gif also created an antisemitic meme and was obviously racist. 2/— Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) July 3, 2017
In the wake of that, I received numerous threats. I was told people wanted to shoot, strangle me, hang me, throw me out of a helicopter 3/— Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) July 3, 2017
