POLICE are hunting an individual who has been sending death threats to a five-year-old Disney actress.
Mia Talerico, who plays Charlie Duncan on Disney’s ‘Good Luck Charlie’, received a death threat via her Instagram account, TMZ has reported.
“Die Mia, F**king Die in hell! Kill yourself, you deserve to die,” one harassing message read.
The internet troll then sent a violent picture of the child’s head with a bloody fist covering it with the caption, "Yes, kill you stupid bitch."
The Los Angeles Police Department were notified after the actress’ mother Claire Talerico contacted Disney security about the vile messages.
Police are investigating the incident in an effort to track down the individual responsible.
Law enforcement sources said investigators are taking the matter seriously.
The child actress began receiving the messages on the picture- sharing account, which is controlled by her mother, in January.
Mia, from Santa Barbara in California, began starring in the Disney programme as her character Charlie when she was only eleven-months-old.
Good Luck Charlie is a Disney sitcom following the Duncan family and the hectic lives of its five children.
The successful show is now in its fourth season.
