Rob Rinder goes on furious GMB rant after guests are sent DEATH THREATS | The Sun

ROBERT Rinder went on a furious rant on Good Morning Britain this morning after a guest revealed he'd been sent DEATH threats.

The television presenter – who has been standing in for regular host Richard Madeley this week – stepped in to defend Diggory Hadoke.

Good Morning Britain host Rob, 44, who has been hosting the show alongside Charlotte Hawkins this week, was left furious to find out guests of the show had been targetted by trolls.

The pair sat down to discuss the tragic euthanasia of Freya the walrus in Norway, and were joined by two guests to debate the decision.

Documentary maker Ali Tabrizi and hunting advocate Diggory sat side by side to discuss the shooting of the much-loved animal.

It was then that talk turned to trolling online, as Rob discussed how death threats had been sent to the Norwegian officials from UK animal lovers over the decision to euthanise Freya.

"Just to be clear, there have been death threats to the Prime Minister and those are never defensible – interestingly most of those have come from this country," he said.

It was then that hunting lover Diggory revealed he too had been sent death threats after his last appearance on GMB – which, despite Rob disagreeing with his point of view on Freya's death, infuriated him.

Rob then hit out at the trolls: "If you do that, whoever you are – you should be prosecuted and that's not OK, full stop.

"Everybody should be able to have a view on pretty much anything without being threatened."

"One thing that is very clear is that nobody should be using whatever limited platform they have to send death threats to anybody," Rob later added during the chat.

Fans took to Twitter to agree with Rob, as they also encouraged viewers at home to "be kind" to those with differing opinions.

"Why on earth do people send death threats to someone because you disagree? It doesn't make sense," one wrote.

It comes after Richard Madeley was replaced by Judge Rob Rinder for this week's episodes of GMB in a presenter shake-up.
