Singer gets death threats for using black actor in video

Norwegian singer Sophie Elise Isachsen has revealed that she received death threats and racist abuse after her latest music video in which she used a black actor.

She said she was horrified when abusive comments began pouring in online in response to the love story between herself and her co-star in the video to her single All Of Your Friends.

Isachsen who titled the video ‘All Of Your Friends’ simply acted out a passionate relationship with a partner, played by a black actor, while she sings about getting her revenge by sleeping with the ex’s friends.

The singer said she had expected some people to take offence to the lyrics, but never that the skin colour of her co-star would provoke responses

She told the  BBC’s Newsbeat,  “I’ve been a public figure in Norway for about six years so I am used to getting a lot of hate,’ she told

‘But I really didn’t think people would care about the guy’s skin colour in my video.’

‘I actually didn’t want to remove the comments because I wanted people to see that this type of thing still goes on,’ she added referring to the racism in the comments.
