The man who allegedly manipulated a Facebook video to make House Speaker Nancy Pelosi look drunk says his life was turned upside down after reporters revealed his identity.

“I have been threatened. People threatened me — saying, ‘Oh, we got to find him and get him.’ Stuff like that,” Shawn Brooks told Fox News host Jesse Waters in an interview Saturday.

The Daily Beast revealed his identity in a lengthy June 2 article, which painted Brooks as an avid supporter of President Donald Trump.

“My family members won’t even talk to me now,” Brooks, who is black, added. “They call me a race-traitor. It’s been kind of rough.”

Brooks also suggested that the reporter who talked to him about the story took several of his comments out of context.

The video artificially slowed Pelosi’s speech and mannerisms.

It was identified as a fake, but not before it had been shared across multiple social media platforms.

Politicians, pundits and activists alike called on social media companies to remove the video from circulation.

Facebook ultimately opted to simply label the video as “fake” and suppress its prominence in people’s feeds even after YouTube dinged the video, noting that it violated the company’s terms of service.

Brooks told The Daily Beast in a phone interview that he was not responsible for creating the altered video and claimed that there were other admins on the Facebook pages who could have posted it.

He posted a screenshot on Facebook showing what he claimed were the identities of the other administrators.

The Daily Beast has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the nature of its report.

    But It’s acceptable for NEWS stations to deliver Fake NEWS to the public?

    His family refuse to talk to him because he supports President Trump?
    I say this man is a Genius.
    His family are Racists. This man is right and his family is WRONG.

    so the news media can take things that POTUS Trump says and does all out of context and THAT’S ok but if a private citizen does it to a democrat, its like they just killed a busload of babies or for the dems something worse, a busload of Muslims or LBGTQ activists! Case in point of how the media twists Trumps words… in that famous video tape of Trump talking about how once you’re famous, women will let you grab them by the… the media always quotes him as saying. “I can grab them by the p***y!” or even, “I grab them by the p***y”..
    what he really said in the video was, “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything, Grab them by the p****. You can do anything.”
    He was speaking in general not saying he actually does or did that!

    The freaking video wasn’t even far off from the way she truly speaks. I’m sure he slowed it by .00001 of a second.
    I’m always commenting on how slow, slurred she talks. Imagine a conversation between her and AOC?

    Pelosi is a slob. I think the video actually complements her.

    It’s a huge deal that Tlaib, traitor anti-American racist, got a message “the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim;” yet a conservative kid does this; & the Left attacks from everywhere. Well, I bet this kid will end up in some Conservative group that will support him. #Walkaway #Brexit.
