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.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
