The Somali man who confirmed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) had married her brother to keep him in the U.S. says he now lives in fear of her after a friend of the radical congresswoman posted a video on YouTube insulting him urging other Somali-Americans to go after him.

According to the Daily Mail, Abdihakim Osman, who is wheelchair-bound, confirmed last month that Omar married her brother and says he is now afraid for his life. He has complained to Minneapolis police and asked YouTube numerous times to remove the video, which was not done until last week.

The video, posted by Malyun Ali, a close friend of the congresswoman, was full of degrading comments and insults about Osman, including calling him a "nasty man who is composed only of a head and a stomach." She also said Osman has a "big bell, small udder, pillar-like head," and urged other members of the Somali community to attack him in the same fashion.
