A woman who posted an offensive and threatening remark about President Obama on Facebook is now being investigated by the United States Secret Service, according to FOX40.

After the president won his re-election Tuesday night, Denise Helms wrote, “Another 4 years of this n***er…maybe he will get assassinated this term..!!”

While Helms doesn’t believe her comments were threatening, the Washington D.C. bureau of the Secret Service told the news station “all threats, or perceived threats, are taken seriously and investigated.”

Helms has since removed the post from her page, but still does not feel she was wrong.

“The assassination part is kind of harsh,” she said. “I’m not saying I’d go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen I don’t think I’d care on bit.”

Helms faces a Class D felony charge if the Secret Service deems her a credible threat.

In case we haven’t learned by now, the Secret Service does not take threats to the head of state lightly.
