Justin Bieber fans have turned against the teen heartthrob's girlfriend, Selena Gomez, after saucy snaps of the pair emerged cavorting on holiday in Hawaii.
According to the Daily Mail, Justin's eager Beliebers were outraged after the publication of the pictures, which showed the cute couple romping and kissing in the sea, leaving them to send the Disney starlet death threats on Twitter and Facebook.
One fan tweeted: "I'm gonna kill ya in the night underneath your smell [sic] bed" while another stated: "Selena Gomez is dangerously close to a long, slow painful death."
More followers vented their anger on Facebook, with a group titled "I hate Selena Gomez cuz she is dating my man" attracting almost 2,000 fans, with one member posting on the page: "If Selena Gomez breaks Justin Bieber's heart, I will break her face. I will kill her without kindness."
Gomez, who has previously received hate mail after going public with the Baby singer, has since told Bliss magazine that sometimes, she can be "too sensitive" when reading hurtful comments about herself online.
The Wizards Of Waverly Place actress confessed: "The negativity is very uncomfortable. I mean, like, everybody goes through it at high school."
"Someone might bully you or say mean things - it's just a part of growing up - but when the whole world has an opinion on you and says things when they don't even know you, it's harsh."
The 18-year old added: "I can read a thousand comments, but one bad comment will throw me off. If I'm honest, I can be too sensitive sometimes, but I try not to focus on it."
