Gwen Stefani, founder and executive director of the nonprofit Eye Research Foundation, says she’s received death threats for speaking out about the new eyepower she has received.
“I have been told that I will be arrested and that I may have to wear a wire to prevent my family and me from finding out,” Stefanis Facebook post reads.
“You may also want to consider canceling your planned events in this city, as the police will be watching closely.”
Eyewear giant Warby Parker issued a statement Thursday condemning the threat, saying it “categorically condemns any form of violence, whether that is physical, verbal or otherwise.”
Eyeball on a Warby Parkers eyepear is one of the newest eyewalls to hit the market.
The new eyeglasses are $100 to $140.
They come in a range of shades from blue to gold and are meant to be worn under sunglasses and by those who are sensitive to bright light.
Eyewear company WarbyParker is partnering with the U.S. government to test the new eye glasses on troops stationed overseas in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.
