Late-night host David Letterman is the target of an online jihadist, according to the website SITE Intelligence Group.
Adam Raisman, an analyst at SITE, told EW.com that the threat was posted on a website called Shumukh-al-Islam, and is used by al-Qaida.
“It’s a clearing house for al-Qaida material, it gets the most al-Qaida supporters,” he told EW.
SITE told EW.com that the poster became upset at a joke on "Late Show With David Letterman."
According to NYDailyNews.com, the "Late Show" segment that upset the person who posted the message showed Letterman drawing his finger across his neck when talking about the death of senior al-Qaida member Ilyas Kashmiri.
