Following the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol, journalist and author Ronan Farrow interviewed a former marine named Donovan Crowl, who attended the riot and was later arrested for his involvement. And on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Tuesday, Farrow revealed the bizarre threat the Oath Keeper made towards him.

Farrow claims Crowl told him, “I'm going to eat a family member of your's face.”

While Crowl was arrested for his involvement in the attacks, the unsettling threat has become more worrisome for Farrow because he was granted home release.

RONAN FARROW: We talked about some of those threats from that-- that one gentleman, Donovan Crowl, who's been significant in the ongoing prosecutions because he's a member of the group The Oath Keepers. So he's part of the faction that was there that day that was very organized.

KYLIE MAR: Following the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, journalist and author Ronan Farrow wrote about a former marine named Donovan Crowl, who attended the riots and was later arrested for his involvement. And on "The Late Show" Tuesday, Farrow revealed the bizarre threat the Oath Keeper made towards him.

RONAN FARROW: He's also someone who said, I studied the shape of your head before I gave an interview to you, and I'm going to eat a family member of yours' face-- a very, very charming individual. He's-- he's out on home release, by the way. So that's-- that's lovely.

KYLIE MAR: While Farrow mentioned Crowl's belief in the pseudoscience of phrenology in his original article, he said the former marine did not reveal his feelings toward Farrow's skull shape.

RONAN FARROW: You know, I didn't press as to whether his conclusion was my skull was so misshapen that he, you know, he felt like he could really have a conversation on the level with me, or whether he felt like it was a great skull. I didn't really go there, but, you know, it's not always a totally rational set of beliefs rooted in facts, let's say.
