The threat to Black‘s life was said to be due to the music video, “Friday“: take the video off the internet or face the consequences. It was reported that the threat was received over the phone thru Black‘s management company and an email to her production company. Both threats were received in March.

“In essence, the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her. We can’t validate how serious they are, but we do take it seriously,” Anaheim police spokesman Sgt. Rick Martinez was quoted saying.

Rebecca Black became famous because of her Youtube video, “Friday“, which others called as the “worst song in history.” The video was created by Ark Music Factory as part of a $2,000 package paid for by Black‘s mother.

According to reports, “Friday” including copies of the video, spoofs and other versions available on other video sites has generated more than 200 million views, surpassing Justin Bieber‘s “Pray” and Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way.”
