Actress Emmy Rossum said on Sunday that supporters of President-elect Donald Trump have been sending her anti-Semitic messages.

- President Trump has shattered Jews' American idyll
- Trump's win, the greatest victory for anti-Semitism in America since 1941
The "Shameless" star tweeted that she has received messages “threatening to send me & my ‘ilk’ to the gas chambers.”
"Telling anyone to 'get ready for the trains' in reference to WWII is disgusting & offensive," she said. "Reporting you to twitter is not enough. Back off."
Rossum expressed her disappointment with Trump's election victory earlier in the week.
"I am a woman. I am Jewish. I am marrying an Arab American. My sister in law is handicapped. I'm a victim of sexual violence. It's personal," she said in a tweet, referring to offensive comments Trump made during his campaign.
Reports of hate crimes have skyrocketed since the election. As many 250 reports of hate crimes were filed with the Southern Poverty Law Center since Wednesday, the civil rights advocacy group said – roughly the amount they receive in a typical five or six month period.
