The former X-Factor contestants, twins John and Edward Grimes, tweeted on September 8 that ‘Liz Truss must have done something on that visit to the Queen!’, and then followed that up by posting: “Abolish the monarchy and give the people real democracy!”
They also took shots at the new King Charles III, writing: “King Charles should hand back the six Irish counties on his visit to Northern Ireland – No war! Just words! It’s time.”
Jedward has since told their fans: “Psychos are sending us death threats! Your threatening behaviour and criminality will not intimidate us.”

The post has garnered support from many individuals on social media, with one person replying: “I don’t agree with the timing and content of some of your tweets and I understand why people are cross but threatening you like this is beyond awful.
“I hope you’ve reported them and that you’re OK.”
“That’s insane. Why can’t people just agree to disagree on things and let it be, it is what it is. No matter the subject. There’s no right or wrong on some stuff, just opinions,” someone else commented.
A third person told the duo: “Wow society has come to this! Hope you’re OK! Know that you are truly loved!”

However, one user tried to resonate with them by responding: “I’m not p***ed about you hating Britain or the royal family. But you two of all people should know how that family is feeling. Strip the titles away just like you they have lost their mother, that’s when I find you disrespectful. You know the pain of losing your mother.”
The duo did explain why they weren’t mourning, by expressing the royal’s history with Ireland.
They tweeted: “FYI we’re Irish. The country that has been oppressed historically by the monarchy! Please study your history! We haven’t said anything but the facts!”
