YouTube sensation Rebecca Black, singer of the awful and viral song Friday, has been receiving death threats so serious that the police are investigating them. In particular, the Anaheim police department is focusing on two death threats made sometime in March. One by email, the other by phone.

“In essence the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her,” Martinez said.

“We can’t validate how serious they are, but we do take it seriously,” he said.

“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,” he said. “If we believe they were actually intended as threats we will work toward prosecution”

Yea, the song is terrible but the simple solution is to not watch it. Oh, a novel idea, I know, but it actually applies to a lot of things. Like the woman screaming for help in my basement. Out of sight, out of mind, I say.
