Laura Bailey Reveals Death Threats on Twitter (Reports).

Actor Laura Bailey has spoken out after receiving death threats from gamers over her role as Abby in The Last Of Us Part 2.

The highly anticipated survival game was released on June 19, and as fans began to work their way through it many soon found themselves very angry with the actions of the character Abby.

Given the game has been out for a couple of weeks, and that the act in question happens early on in the game, I’ll assume those of you who have played know exactly what I’m talking about. If you’re still oblivious, though, be prepared for a spoiler ahead.

Within the opening hours of the game, Abby kills another major character. Despite the fact the game is just that – a game – I shouldn’t need to remind anyone that the character of Abby isn’t real, and no one really died.

Still, it seems some gamers forgot that fact, and decided to take their anger out on the person who helped bring Abby to life: Laura Bailey.

In a tweet shared on Friday, July 3, the actor shared some screenshots of the nasty messages she’d received, explaining she’d blanked out some comments to prevent fans from seeing spoilers.

She said she usually tries to keep her posts positive, but explained ‘sometimes this just gets a little overwhelming’.

Messages include death threats, people wishing her and her parents dead, people threatening to ‘stab’ her and a message telling her to ‘go f*ck’ herself.

One disturbing message read: ‘I’m going to find where you live and slaughter you’.
