Laurence Fox joined Nigel Farage on GB News where the pair discussed Mr Fox’s acting and political career. But Mr Farage noted Mr Fox was a keen user of Twitter and quizzed the actor on his political views, appearing to suggest he may regret what he puts on the social media platform in the future. The Reclaim Party leader dismissed the concerns and said many have already warned him of sharing things publically with Mr Farage advising Mr Fox, as the former leader of the Brexit Party, it would be safer to keep things off Twitter.
Speaking on GB News, the pair discussed Mr Fox’s political career and his stint as the Reclaim Party leader.
Mr Fox told the show he had noticed cancel culture start to take shape in the UK around 2010 after he saw the acting sector diversify, wishing to edit the identities of famous characters.
He added he was opposed to the logic and did not want someone’s appearance or race, things they could not help, to define who they were as a person so rejected identity politics.
But as the conversation went on, Mr Farage wanted to address Mr Fox’s Twitter account and had an issue with it.
He told Mr Fox: “Let’s be fair, I would suggest to you that you do have a little bit of a Twitter problem.
“That one or two late-night tweets have not been… exactly what we expect from the leader of Relcima, a political party of the United Kingdom.
“Do you have a problem with Twitter?”
Mr Fox replied: “I think everyone has a problem with Twitter, I think Twitter is dreadful, it’s a sewer.

“And it’s also so addictive and it makes you think in 240 characters.”
Mr Fox explained his biggest issue with Twitter is that he assumes people will get what he is going to say so does not preface a lot of what he shares.
He added he often deleted tweets every two weeks but now he does “not care”.
Mr Farage then advised Mr Fox: “But I’m just suggesting, maybe, as a party political leader… some of those late-night tweets… although I had a friend over in America who sent those late-night tweets 24-hours a day.
“He finished in quite a good position.”
Mr Farage was making reference to Donald Trump and found it astounding he was booted off the platform whereas Taliban representatives are still allowed on.
Mr Fox drew widespread condemnation and was accused of racism after the news broke of footballer Benjamin Mendy being charged with four counts of rape.
The actor quote tweeted a story of the events and wrote: “Get kneeling, f*****s”.
Mr Fox has been a staunch opponent of taking the knee at football.
