Anonymous have targeted the frontman of The Prodigy, Keith Flint, for allegedly hunting animals.
In a video, posted by a user named AnonIntelGroup, Flint is criticised for his allegiance to ‘Tory criminals’ and accused of liking to ‘kill and torture animals’. They call the singer a ‘traitorous fuckwit’ and claim he’s betrayed his anti-establishment roots.
The masked figure goes on to warn the singer that he’s in for a ‘bumpy ride’, although they claim that the video is not a threat, just a warning. They finish by ominously saying he has just one year to change his ways.
The video comes after the Daily Mail reported that Flint had adopted the life of a country gent and had been spotted riding with his local hunt. An unnamed source told them: “His enthusiasm for the sport is the talk of Essex hunting circles.”
However Mr Flint has denied the allegations and claimed that although he went horse riding on a hunt trail he never took part in killing animals.
He released the following statement on Facebook:
In regards to a story going around about me right now – yes I live in Essex and have a couple of horses. I went riding with the local trail hunt, it was a ride out and NO ANIMALS WERE HUNTED OR KILLED, so my conscience is clear, it wasn’t my thing and I won’t be going again.
