The 28-year-old Juventus player said he had received abuse on social media.
And he added that his wife and children were shouted at in the Spanish city of Seville.
"People have been saying 'I hope your children die'. I'd like people to put themselves in my shoes and think what it's like to get threats to my family," he told the Cadena Cope station.
"My wife and children have come to the stadium in Seville with Morata on the back of their shirts and people have been shouting at them.
"It's complicated. I understand people booing me for missing chances but there's a limit."
I'm proud of the fact I picked up the ball [to take the penalty] after people booed me in the warm-up. A few years ago I would have been devastated but I'm really motivated. Whoever thinks the opposite doesn't know me," he said.
"It's hard to find a group like this especially in the difficult times. After a week like this I've been aware of how everyone looks at me but I look in their eyes and see they are supporting me."
