Rebecca Black death threats investigated

Singer of the much-talked about track, 'Friday', Rebecca Black, has received death threats according to the Anaheim Police Department. 

The 13-year-old became a viral sensation after the video for 'Friday' became instantly popular on YouTube and has continued to grow as it now has over 111 million views, but police spokesperson Rick Martinez told the press that death threats are being investigated:

"In essence the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her,"

"We can't validate how serious they are, but we do take it seriously," 

He added, seriously:

"We're going to investigate and determine, number one, the source of the comments and then based on the investigation determine what intent was and where we go from here,"

"If we believe they were actually intended as threats we will work toward prosecution"
