The comedian isn’t too fussed!
Russell received a load of hate mail after a joke he made at the MTV Video Music Awards 2008 about former President George W Bush, but he wasn’t worried about the threats.
Speaking to Playboy magazine, he said, “I was surprised my agency forwarded them along to me. It was like, ‘Look at all these death threats you’ve been getting!’
“I was also getting sexy letters with messages like ‘Hello, Russell. Here are photos of my t*ts. I wish you’d come around and f**k me.’ But they never passed those along to me.”
He then added, “Those letters they just burned. All I got were the death threats. I never took any of it seriously.
“If you think about it, a death threat is really futile, given the nature of mortality. If you want somebody to die, just wait.”
Well you’re the one receiving them…!
