Emmy Rossum Fights Back Against Anti-Semitic Trolls

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.”

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.”
