Hugh Grant gave online trolls some major ammo. The 59-year-old has been slammed for campaigning with multiple candidates from several parties in an attempt to prevent the British Conservative party from winning the majority in the upcoming election on December 12th.
At a recent appearance with Faiza Shaheen, a Labour Parliamentary Candidate, protestors asked him why he was supporting a “racist” party. Many others object to his appearance with candidates in several parties and his recent statement that conservatives are “bad people” who must “be stopped” in an interview.
He shared the mug shot from his 1995 arrest for lewd conduct with sex worker Divine Brown, writing: “To my dear trolls. Hope this is helpful. Now you have more time to spend with mummy.”
After his arrest, he and his then-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley ended their relationship of 13 years. They have remained close though, and he is the godfather to her son, Damian, who is 17. Grant has five children, including three with wife Anna Eberstein.
