Facebook User Threatens to Kill Lance Bass


Last night, Lance Bass tweeted out a disturbing image of a series of Facebook comments directed at him by a user named Ted Fau. The remarks, which contain numberous anti-gay slurs, also include threats of violence, such as "I want to stab you and play around with your blood."

The user asks Bass whether he "[has] HIV yet" and asks Bass if he knows any gangsters. Adds the user: "cause I do...they have a hit on you."

Wrote Bass in his tweet: "If I go missing -this guy did it- Jeez! Sad to know many LGBT kids deal w this irrational hatred daily."

  1. Notice the projection here. "You shattered millions of American woman's dreams." "They had dreams of being your wife and girlfriends." The constant talk about gay sex. Ted Fau is someone who is most likely gay and is angry that Lance Bass is a OPENLY GAY man who ACCEPTS himself for who he is, instead of living as heterosexual. This is how the homophobic closeted operate. They resent gay men who don't hate themselves because they think we are basically willingly doing what we shouldn't, we should be good little gays and fake being straight because that's the right way to be. We should stop being anti-social and deleting ourselves from the pool of available men for women. They resent all gay men who don't have the internalized self-hate that they have to deal with their entire lives.

    Most men who are actually straight and secure in their sexuality wouldn't project about gay sex, and wouldn't care about a gay man coming out and not being apart of the pool of available men for women. In fact, they'd welcome it because it would mean a better chance for them.

    Good on Lance for brushing it off, really, but also exposing this persons' hate on twitter. This is what so many of us have to deal with daily and is a reminder of the issue homophobia is in the daily lives of LGBT citizens. Does anyone have this Ted Fau idiots' FB page so we can leave some comments for him and what we think about this idiot?

  3. I think Lance should report these messages to fb and the authorities. It sounds like Ted is nuts.

  4. He made a direct threat on his life. The nut job needs to be arrested, spend 30 days in jail, given a psychological evaluation, and ordered to stay 5 miles away from Lance at all times or go to prison.

  5. It would be Interesting to no if this guy or girl is using their real name so the real person could be held accountable for such unwarranted hatred towards this guy.
    I am so tired of this hit and run comments thing going on in social media!

  6. Awful.
    Social media is excellent opportunity to share ideas, thought etc. like here.
    BUT it also brings the worst of people.
    Why have people become so aggressive?
    Hopefully they'll get who ever wrote and Lance can live his life normally.

  7. Celebrities get death threats all the time. LB is probably happy for his career.

  9. Anon, there are attention-boosting mini scandals and then there are the kinds of things that bother you more and more the longer you think about them. Celebrities, politicians, etc. have actually been murdered by stalkers/unbalanced fans or had other violence committed in their name. Until stalking laws were strengthened in the US after the death of a sitcom star in the 80s it was even scarier. I don't think any celebrity is happy for his or her career when the level of disturbance is this evident. And while I understand the urge to share and go WTF? I almost wish he'd given this jerk no attention. Then again, when someone is crazy, are they more likely to react to feeling closer to you or ignored by you? Disturbing.

  10. Matt, I don't know if people are getting more aggressive, but what is happening is that many people have lost the ability to separate social media from real life, therefore losing a part of normal personhood, normal ways of behaving. But this situation is different, this is just a mentally unbalanced guy obsessed with Lance. It's scary for celebrities because there ARE a lot of people like this out there in the world. Celebrities don't sign up for things like this, yeah private life isn't really private being a celebrity, but no-one would expect to have to deal with something like this and have some random loon threatening their lives.

  11. People such as Ted used to sit at home and glue magazine clippings about their "subjects" all over a room in their home. They would videotape every tv newsbit or appearance.

    Now, they join Facebook.

  12. One has to wonder if the hormones that are being used in our food supply that are causing girls to develop breasts a younger age now aren't also causing a rise in aggression?

  13. yup that calls for an investigation. i'm all for free speech online but death threats are different.

  14. Clearly the author of these posts is the biggest "faggot" of them all. He protests waaaaay too much!

  17. Wouldn't this be traceable?

    Posted by: mike | Mar 20, 2012 3:05:21 PM

  18. @ Francis, I actually thought that Ted's profile might just be a cover for a straight woman. That might explain just how connected Ted seems to be to the idea that there were women out there fantasizing about Lance back in the day.

  19. I thought that at first Boywonder but I don't think so........he's probably one of those types who thinks men being openly gay is a violation of manhood. Like, how dare we be gay, how dare you not be with women, that's the "natural" way. I can pretty much imagine it, sounds like a prototypical insane closeted individual. Plus someone this imbalanced is dumb enough to not think of using an alias.

    Posted by: Francis | Mar 20, 2012 5:10:00 PM

  20. Wow, what a freak! Sounds like some deranged girl who still hasn't gotten over the fact that her crush is gay.

    Posted by: David | Mar 20, 2012 5:15:11 PM

  21. Wow, Joey Fatone is angry...
