Michelle Fields Abandons Apartment Over Safety Concerns After Fox, BuzzFeed Publish Personal Info

Ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields said Wednesday she had temporarily moved out of her D.C.-area apartment over safety concerns after Fox News and BuzzFeed accidentally published her address online.

Both of the news outlets inadvertently posted the phone number and address of Fields when they  published the arrest report of Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Fields had alleged Lewandowski committed simple battery against her at a news conference earlier this month and he was arrested and charged Tuesday.

Fields told TheBlaze that she had been inundated with threatening messages on her phone after the two outlets posted the arrest report and failed to redact her personal information.

The 28-year-old reporter said that because individuals were sending threats, she no longer felt safe staying at her apartment and had temporarily moved out.

After Fields brought it to the attention of Fox News and BuzzFeed, the outlets removed it from their websites.

Neither a representative for Fox News nor BuzzFeed was available for comment Wednesday night.
