The King of Memphis wrestling is receiving death threats over his tweet about Donald Trump.

Jerry “The King” Lawler sent a tweet February 9 announcing his support for the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The tweet encouraged people in New Hampshire to get out and vote for the billionaire businessman.

While some tweeted their support or disappointment, others sent threats or tweeted that they wanted the wrestling king to die.

Lawler said sending out the tweet was probably not the best idea, and said that he is now going to stay out of politics.
