"I find Ellen and kidnap her and kill her throat and let everyone see it on my Instagram." This unnerving message was just one among many posted to actress Ellen Page’s Instagram page, and now LAPD is getting involved. TMZ reports that detectives obtained a search warrant in June to trace the menacing Instagram user’s IP address. Other threatening messages sent by the user called Page a "lying worthless Canadian" and a "b**** actress" who "needs to die in my hands."

Despite the threats, Page continues to post regularly on Instagram to her 1.1 million followers. Per the Express Tribune, Page has two films, Flatliners and Mercy, coming out this year, and recently received an Emmy nod for her travel docu-series, Gaycation. No arrests in connection with the actress' social media threats have yet been reported. (Read more Elliot Page stories.)
