Threats from a Freelancer

I just received the following threats from a freelancer we'd hired. What can be done about this? Please see attached.

 

BTW, there should be a way that clients can report this IMMEDIATELY, and this is all because I gave him a 4 for communication skills. He needs to be removed as a possible freelancer.

Contact CS and submit a support ticket with the screenshot immediately, they'll take care of it.

Your attachment will be removed when a mod gets here, but from what I read, the freelancer should be banned from the site permanently.  As suggested, submit to CS immediately.

providers are like clients. The lower the rate, the worse the provider.

There is no rate and no behavior on the part of the client that justifies threatening behavior from a freelancer.

 

I agree that this freelancer needs to be banned permanently from Upwork. The client is doing Upwork a favor to report this.

 I  agree with you here. No matter how much you charge or how rude your client is, you cannot behave like that. It's wrong and sickening.
