Jarvis Britton, 25, allegedly sent several tweets calling for Obama’s death.

An Atlanta man has been charged with threatening the life of the president after tweeting a message calling for his death.

Jarvis Britton, 25, allegedly sent the tweet on Sept. 14 from Twitter account @iTweet_Unspok3n.

“Lets kill the president F.E.A.R.”

Britton followed up that message with two more on Sept. 19one of which also included the acronym F.E.A.R. which stands for Forever Enduring Always Ready, a group with plans to kill the president, the Washington Post reported.

“Serious question? If you knew about a terrorist group planning to kill the president, would you tell? I kinda wanna see if they can! F.E.A.R.”

Yes you can kill a president with cyanide. who would put that in water/coffee?”

According to his Twitter and Facebook profiles, Britton has a penchant for taking photos of himself with his shirt off, and he often tweeted about training for a mixed martial arts fight. His hatred for Obama dates back to April 18 when he tweeted a photo of the president allegedly smoking along with the following message:

“Fuck OBAMA, this fake ass nigga smoked weed once also. Here’s Proof. Anti-Obama, Somebody off this fake cuban ass nigga.”

If convicted, Britton could face five to 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 and restrictions to Internet access.
