Lela Loren Receives Threats Over ‘Power’ Role
There’s always going to be a character on a show that you don’t particularly care for, but some of y’all gotta chill.
Lela Loren, who plays federal prosecutor Angela Valdes on the Starz hit drama, “Power,” recently revealed she’s been receiving threats from fans of the show who don’t like her character.
The 36-year-old actress told Page Six people have actually threatened to cut her and rape her.
For me, it is not so much if people hate my character, it’s when I get threats on my own personal life. It is just awful.
People can wish my character dead all the time. But it is when you say if you see me you are going to cut me, rape me — that is the piece that is really hard with social media and the anonymity of people.
As a woman, it is really hard when people think they can say misogynistic things to me while I am riding the train because they saw me naked on the show. They think because [I’ve] been sexualized on television that they can approach me.
Lela better get security because folks are crazy.
“Power” season 4 premieres on June 25 on Starz.
