Sonia Kruger has been left in fear for her life, with a series of shock death threats targeting the embattled TV host after she went public with her divisive views on Muslim immigration last week.
The 50-year-old has been slammed as a ‘racist’ and a ‘bigot’ after claiming on the Today show that Australia should close its doors to Muslims, telling viewers that she’d ‘like to feel safe’.
She later defended her comments, arguing that she was entitled to her views ‘as a mother’ – leading to an angry backlash from other mums, with one claiming her little boy had been called a ‘terrorist’ after the TV host’s controversial opinions.
But as the viral wave of hate towards Sonia raged on, some took their fury at her to a frightening level – posting death threats on social media, and inundating Channel Nine’s offices with concerning personal attacks on the star.
