Reuters is reporting that police are investigating two death threats against Rebecca Black, the 13-year-old who became an instant viral video celebrity thanks to her music video for the song “Friday.” The threats were reportedly made last month. “In essence, the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her,” said Anaheim police spokesperson Rick Martinez. “We can’t validate how serious they are, but we do take it seriously.”
