The pair have made several separate tweets airing their opinion on the monarchy including the following which was posted on September 10: “King Charles should hand back the six Irish counties on his visit to Northern Ireland – No war! Just words! It’s time.”
Having been met with mixed emotions by followers and Twitter users, on September 13, Jedward has since claimed they have been sent death threats.
The siblings tweeted: “Psychos are sending us death threats! Your threatening behaviour and criminality will not intimidate us.”
Gaining more than 4,000 likes on the tweet, many of the twin brother’s fans rallied around them, advising the stars to report the abuse they are receiving
