Police confirmed that a man allegedly threatened to kill Piers Morgan and his son was arrested last year.
Broadcasters are said to have received the message that he is a “marked man” and that “killing” him is a “promise”.
Morgan’s 28-year-old son, Spencer, was reportedly sent a message that he would “get it” if his father didn’t.
Morgan told Sun: “People think it’s perfectly okay to threaten public figures on social media, but they don’t. Especially if the family is targeted, you need to draw a line.
“That’s why I reported it, and I’m grateful to Met and Greater Manchester police for taking it so seriously.”
“A timid threat has consequences,” he added on Twitter.
The Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement: “On Wednesday, February 17, 2021, police received reports of malicious communications related to messages sent on social media.
“The officers talked directly with the petitioner.
“On August 3, a 43-year-old man was arrested in Manchester on suspicion of threatening to kill him. He was released during an investigation while the investigation continued.
“Investigation is ongoing.”
