Two-weight world champion Carl Frampton responds to sickening death threat him and his family received from someone on Facebook.
Earlier this week it was revealed here that this disturbing message was sent to the wife of Carl Frampton, Christine Frampton.
Done so by an unknown Facebook user.
The above message threatened to kill Carl Frampton, his wife and children in a truly disgraceful act. It is not known who sent it or how serious it was.
It is understood that the Facebook account that sent the above message has now been closed down. Speaking to BBC Talkback – Carl Frampton responds to the internet user who sent the message saying:
