Former Married At First Sight star Nasser Sultan has issued a serious warning to trolls who have threatened his family online.
Appearing on KIIS FM’s Kyle And Jackie ‘O’ on Monday, the 51-year-old announced he aims to bring the offenders to justice with the help of the New South Wales’ police.
‘I’m going to the police today and I’ve got a list of death threats, bomb threats, and stalking threats,’ Nasser said of the seriousness of the hostile interactions.

Nasser claims the death threats escalated after news broke of his decision to contact a 12-year-old’s school principal for vile comments he received from the pupil.
‘People are sending me pictures of guns and saying: “9mm – your family is going to get blown up. You’re going to get blown up.”‘
Clearly angered by the brazen comments made by the public to his private inboxes, Nasser told the radio hosts: ‘I’m not going to tolerate that.’

‘Regardless of what you think of Nasser or the MAFS, or him reaching out to that school’s principal, when you do make death threats against someone the police will handle them seriously, and you will get arrested,’ shock jock Kyle Sandilands said.
He continued: ‘People think they can get on social media and say whatever, but there is a cyber crimes division of the New South Wales police and they will find you. You will be arrested for making death threats – that’s a jail-able offence!’
Kyle, appearing to give a strong warning to any listeners who engage in the vulgar act online, added: ‘You shouldn’t’ be sending anyone death threats or threatening someone’s family unless you do want to get locked up, because that’s what will happen.’
