In the wake of the fatal mass shooting of Capital Gazette reporters, an editor at Splinter published voicemail threats he had received after reporting on President Donald Trump.

On Monday, editor Hamilton Nolan published a widely-cited piece predicting increasing backlash against individual members of the Trump administration, after press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was denied service at the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia.

“This week I wrote something that got widely circulated among angry right-wing people on the internet, which caused my personal contact information to be published online, which allowed me to hear voicemails from many new friends,” he wrote.

“Watch your ass, watch your ass,” one caller threatened. “You’re going down, boy, cause sweet 16″ hunting knife to carve your ass up.”

“Violence is coming your way, bastard,” another threatened.

“You want the wrath of hell brought down on you?” asked another caller.

“This is a Trump supporter, he’s going to get reelected again and I hope you f*cking choke on it,” a woman said. “You f*cking snowflake.”
