The third episode of Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up garnered special attention from viewers after Gypsy Rose Blanchard mentioned receiving death threats after getting out of jail. She read out one of those that she got back in 2023.

The 32-year-old Gypsy read from her cellphone:

"You stupid waste of space. Wait until you are canceled by real people. That’ll ruin your life. You are going to wish you are back behind bars. I can’t wait to be a part of tearing you down bit by bit. You deserve nothing but to be six feet under or locked away forever."

She added that such messages have always worried her in real life. She shared how it is troublesome for her to think about what would happen if someday someone actually attacked her.

In May, she spoke to People, where she revealed how social media has had a negative impact on her life over time. In the conversation, she also described herself as an introvert.
