The Covington Catholic High School student who stood still as a Native American protester approached him and chanted says he has received death threats from people who believe he was harassing the protester.

“It’s been terrible, people have threatened our lives,” Nick Sandmann told NBC in an interview that aired Wednesday when asked how his life has changed after a video of the incident went viral.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’ve also been getting a lot of messages from people – both support and a lot of hateful things,” he said.

Sandmann found himself at the center of a controversy over the weekend after an image of him standing and smiling in front of the Native American protester Nathan Phillips went viral.

Sandmann’s full interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie aired Wednesday morning on the Today Show, and has been released in the following video clips. Guthrie asked him if he wanted to accept some fault for the situation, to which he firmly responded, “As far as standing there, I had every right to do so. My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips. I respect him. I’d like to talk to him…But I can’t say that I’m sorry for listening to him and standing there.”

Guthrie grilled Sandmann over the fact that he and several other students were wearing “Make America Great Again” hats.  “Do you think if you weren’t wearing that hat this might not have happened?” she asked.

NBC stated that they had already interviewed Mr. Phillips multiple times, but intended to have it back again following this interview.
