Rachel Riley, an English television personality, best known for her co-hosting Countdown, a puzzle game program, plans to receive additional security after being the target of online abuse, reports The Jewish Chronicle's website.

At the beginning of December, Riley tweeted a video produced by Kick It Out and the Chelsea football club about anti-Semitism in English football culture.

Since then, Riley has been the subject of criticism and abuse.

According to her, part of this abuse comes from the party defenders of the party of Jeremy Corbyn, because of her criticism of the party and its leader, Corbyn.

"We get more security for Countdown, by being against anti-Semitism, you're a target, and I'm not taking it lightly," Riley said, according to the report. "The more I speak, the more abuse I get, and the more abuse I get, the more I speak, it has come to the point where I can not look at my Twitter feed anymore, it's just a constant stream. "

Riley, who is Jewish, continued to speak out against anti-Semitism, regardless of the twitter abuse. In January, Riley talked about anti-Semitism on the channel 4 of Channel 4 in Channel 4, the channel Ways to Change the World.
