Wallace contacted university police early Sunday evening after receiving numerous death threats via e-mail and phone, said UCPD spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein.
Police advised her to take a number of precautions and are currently working to ensure her safety, Greenstein said.
“If she’s received a death threat, I find that as deplorable as her original YouTube video. If this is the response of students on campus, we’ve got a lot of work to do,” said Robert Naples, associate vice chancellor and dean of students.
Within three days, the video provoked a tremendous response, both inside and outside the UCLA community.
Speaking Sunday night, a university spokesman called the video “repugnant.”
