Ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields has gone into hiding Wednesday, citing safety concerns, after Fox News and BuzzFeed “accidentally” leaked her address online.
The news outlets claimed they inadvertently posted the phone number and address of Fields when they published the arrest report of Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Fields told TheBlaze that she had been inundated with threatening messages on her phone after the two outlets mistakenly posted her information. The 28-year-old reporter said that because individuals were sending threats, she no longer felt safe staying at her apartment and had temporarily moved out. After Fields brought it to the attention of Fox News and BuzzFeed, the outlets removed it from their websites.
Representative for Fox News and BuzzFeed were not available for comment Wednesday.
