The very nasty Laurence Fox

I have been very limited in my title as I don’t want to be rude
Laurence Fox has now bought himself an exemption lanyard off Amazon so he doesn’t need to wear a mask I believe he hinted at anxiety although I m not sure if that’s his full reasoning He also held a party I believe at his house in November
This man is an utter disgrace

There is little to recommend this man I feel.

Who is Lawrence fox?

I did see a post from him on fb mocking anyone who kept to Covid rules. He is entitled to his (uninformed) opinion but placed to the side of his arrogant comments was a nurse still with the marks of ppe on her face, talking about what is going on for staff and patients, which in my opinion made him look very stupid indeed.

Think he is an actor from a family of actors

Espana Sat 16-Jan-21 13:41:14

In that case why does anyone care about him?

Riverwalk Sat 16-Jan-21 13:42:15

He's not likely to get any more acting jobs so trying to become a personality/political disruptor/general arse.

Hes an entitled man having one of the most ridiculous mid life crises I have ever seen.

lemongrove Sat 16-Jan-21 13:46:21

Never heard of him either ( no actor will be pleased by that!)

BlueBelle Sat 16-Jan-21 13:47:36

We don’t care about him espana but everyone should care about the messages he’s giving out

He has set up some political party I believe. He objected to being called a white privileged Mail and has been banging on about pc, cancelling culture etc ever since.

Male

I’ve seen him a few times on various chat shows and he comes across as an attention seeking prat who enjoys playing the controversial villain.

Espana Sat 16-Jan-21 13:50:40

Sorry bluebell, didn’t mean to sound so flippant. Is he going this on social media because I don’t have that and so have no idea what he is saying. Do you think that ignoring him would be a better response?

He was Kevin whateleys sidekick in Lewis. Is he Emilia Fox’s brother ? Cousin ? He’s rather popular I think with those who don’t understand Black Lives Matter

You do have social media ! You are on it now !

A few months ago, he was spouting his controversial views on the pandemic on The Jeremy Vine Show. He has not become a regular guest, I'm pleased to say.

Toxic Twitter?

EllanVannin Sat 16-Jan-21 13:52:51

I think the man is unwell, putting it kindly.

EllanVannin Sat 16-Jan-21 13:54:41

Some of these acting families are very unhinged in some way.

I liked Lawrence Fox in the detective series.

Espana Sat 16-Jan-21 13:57:48

Thanks for the heads up Lucia 🐝

Galaxy Sat 16-Jan-21 13:57:55

I agree, I dont think he is well, but that doesnt help matters.

lemongrove Sat 16-Jan-21 13:59:37

Thanks for the info Lucca I don’t watch Lewis ( although used to enjoy the Morse series.)

Riverwalk Sat 16-Jan-21 13:59:40

Why is he not well?

That somehow implies he's not responsible for his actions.

For anyone who watches Celebrity Gogglebox , you will recognise the loathsome Laurence Fox from appearing alongside his cousin Emelia Fox..

LF didn't appear in the last series of GB, instead Emilia was joined alongside her actress mother Joanna David.
