Police in Anaheim, California are investigating two death threats against Rebecca Black, the 13-year-old responsible for the viral pop hit “Friday.” According to Anaheim Police spokesman Rick Martinez, “the threats were related to getting the music off the internet or they were going to kill her.” Martinez told reporters that they were unsure whether or not Black was in danger, but are taking the threats seriously as they were made through her Los Angeles-based production and management companies.

One of the threats, which arrived around the time “Friday” hit in March, came by telephone and the other by email. Martinez says that investigators have not identified the person or people behind the threats, but that they would face criminal charges if discovered.
