‘Psychological Warfare’: Utah Black Lives Matter Activist Receives Death Threats Following TV Appearance on PBS

A Black Lives Matter activist from Utah is speaking out about the death threats she received after making an appearance on “PBS American Portrait” on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Lex Scott, the founder of Black Lives Matter Utah, shared two dozen audio recordings of the threats she received on Facebook Wednesday night, and spoke to KSL.com about some of the threatening messages she had gotten, including a voice message from a man who called several times and claimed the “American Resistance” would “f–k” her up.

“I need them to know that they didn’t destroy me, and that I’m not going to cower,” Scott told KSL.com, describing the messages as a kind of “psychological warfare.”
