Britain's Got Talent judge and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo has revealed vile trolls warned he "should look over his shoulder" and warned he "would get his head kicked in" following his group's controversial performance.
Last week's Black Lives Matters inspired routine, showed Ashley on the ground as a dancer acting as an officer rested his knee on his neck – and has sparked more that 15,000 Ofcom complaints.
Since then he has been sharing some of the horrific racist abuse he's suffered as a result of the routine on social media and blasting critics.
Ashley insisted he "stands by" Diversity's BGT performance, despite all the racist abuse and complaints.
Now he has taken to Instagram to share sickening screenshots of the threats he has received and branded his critics 'racist'.
He said: "Every tweet in support of this Marxist s**t merely increases the likelihood of you getting your head kicked in."
"He wants to start looking over his shoulders now," another warned.
And several told Diversity to "go back to Africa" and branded them wild animals.

Ashley wrote with his post: "No I don’t mean 'criticism'… I mean 'Racism'. I mean hate… I mean the very thing that makes every single second of that performance and every single complaint worth it.
"I didn't want to even shed light on any of this directly. But here's just a small selection from the past week.
"And please don’t worry about or feel sorry for me… Feel sorry for the people that endure this kind of abuse and have no voice or platform.
"Feel sorry for the people that have been singled out, abused and in some cases murdered because of the colour of their skin.
"The only saving grace is that this is the vast minority… But for all the people asking or wondering – yes it is very real and yes it does exist."
Britain's Got Talent continues on ITV this Saturday at 8pm.
