Louis Theroux 'kicked out' of interviewees' house mid filming: 'Shoot's going great!'

Louis Theroux, 50, was involved in quite the lively debate on Thursday night that went into the early hours of Friday morning. The journalist was apparently “kicked out” of an interviewees’ house while filming in Kentucky for a new documentary, after the guest alleged he “accused him of being a Nazi”.
The row began on Twitter after the interviewee, who’s known as Beardson Beardly, announced to his followers that he had booted the journalist off his property.

“Just kicked Louis Theroux out of my house,” he penned on the social media site.

He followed it up with another tweet branding Louis a “dumb*ss” and proving that he had blocked him.

He went on to tease that he was live streaming the story on his channel, in which hundreds of people were watching.

Louis in the meantime, couldn’t help but make light of the situation, sharing to Twitter: “Shoot’s going well!”

During the live stream, Beardson could be seen on a phone call with Louis, who answered his accusations.

In a clip shared by a fan of the journalist, Louis can be heard saying: “Apologise for what?”

Beardson looks smug as he replies: “For trying to accuse me of being a Nazi and doing Nazi salutes in my own home.”

The pair attempted to call out journalists for their “lies and deceit”, with the host branding the media “scum”.

Nick claimed Louis had the “chance to do the right thing,” in regards to the issue at hand, while Beardson announced he would “sue” to the documentary team if the show airs and his wife is seen in any of the footage.

“If they gets my wife in the shot, I’ll sue to sh*t out of them,” he snapped, after ranting about how she didn’t give them her permission to be on camera.

Back on Twitter, Louis fans were puzzled at the disagreement, but had the journalist’s back all the same.

“He just streamed your phone-call with him online – surely that in breach of something…” one follower wondered.

“I hope this stream is in the final show,” another added.

A third sighed: “Dude is secretly loving all the attention you can tell.”

“Excited to see what comes of this,” a fourth laughed.

Someone else poked fun at the disgruntled guest: “Not him on the phone to you rn saying ‘why the f*ck would I want to talk to you’ while talking to you and airing the call on his public streaming platform LOL.”(sic)

ACTOR Louis Partridge looks so convincing as Sex Pistol Sid Vicious you’d be forgiven for thinking the musician’s death was a Great Rock ’N’ Roll Swindle.

He was filming in Deal, Kent, with Emma Appleton who plays Sid’s girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

Jacob Slater portrays Paul Cook, Anson Boon takes on Johnny Rotten and Toby Wallace kits up as Steve Jones.

They were filming in a theatre which staged the band’s last performance for the children of striking firefighters.

Based on the memoir of Sex Pistol bassist Steve Jones, Danny Boyle has described the Sex Pistols emergence in the mid-70s as the moment that British society and culture changed for ever.

But Johnny Rotten himself isn’t so sweet on the film – who branded the biopic “disrespectful s**t” amid threats to take legal action against its production.

‘F*ck the Super League’: Pop star Louis Tomlinson slams ‘greedy f*ckers at the top’ over shock plans for football breakaway league

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has thrown his weight behind the fan fury at the proposed European Super League mutiny, telling his Twitter following of nearly 36 million that the plans have come from “greedy f*ckers at the top.”

While it is unlikely that Tomlinson’s beloved lower-league Doncaster Rovers will compete at the top level of European football anytime soon, that hasn’t stopped the multiple award-winning musician from expressing his solidarity with critics who say the plans will drive a wedge into the landscape of football as we know it.

Fans across Europe have formed a united front in opposition to the move, with protests taking place outside of Manchester United’s Old Trafford and at Leeds’ Elland Road, where one of the six English signatories, Liverpool, play this evening.

And the theme is a common one: this is a cash-grab which comes at the expense of the fans and the fans alone.

F*ck the Super League and the greedy f*ckers at the top,” wrote Tomlinson online, perhaps using the type of language the more youthful element of his fanbase might not be accustomed to hearing.

Tomlinson, though, is not alone. Aside from the legions of football supporters who have castigated their own teams for even contemplating the proposal, the move has also been met with criticism from practically every quarter. 

In the UK, prime minister Boris Johnson has vowed to do everything in his power to stop the plan from proceeding, while Prince William, the current president of the English Football Association, has also made known his stance.

Now, more than ever, we must protect the entire football community – from the top level to the grassroots – and the values of competition and fairness at its core,” tweeted the second in line to the British throne, who is an avid supporter of Aston Villa.

I share the concerns of fans about the proposed Super League and the damage it risks causing to the game we love.”

Kate Middleton ‘enjoys’ playing an ‘active’ parenting role for George, Charlotte and Louis

Kate Middleton and Prince William are both senior working members of the Royal Family which means they must adhere to and follow certain parenting techniques. However, the Duke and Duchess have also been known to step away from traditional rules and implement their own. 
Kate joined the Royal Family in 2011 when she married Prince William in Westminster Abbey. 

The couple had met previously while studying at university.

Since then, they have had three royal children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

The children are regularly seen with their parents for royal engagements although this has been paused due to the pandemic.

Sophie explained: “Having multiple children is difficult, as any parent of two or more will attest to. 

“You can’t meet all their needs at once and there is always a time when all three need you and you only have two hands. 

“It seems as if Kate is coping admirably with the joys and strains that three children bring – as well as any mum in her position would. 

“Kate and William could have easily hired more staff to help with childcare but chose to keep just one nanny, showing that Kate enjoys playing an active and present role in the lives of her three children.”

The Duchess will often be seen showing affection towards her children in public and has a huge interest in early years education.

Last year, she launched a campaign which encouraged parents across the country to answer questions on what they thought on early years education.

This might mean that she likes being involved in bringing up George, Charlotte and Louis because she knows how important their early years are.

The expert added: “Kate is a very involved mum and clearly wants to influence the way in which her children are raised, how they are educated and the morals that they will value. 

“Employing just one nanny, rather than a team, means that Kate can be actively involved in her children’s upbringing while still having help and support with day-to-day childcare.”

Due to the pandemic, the royal children have been kept out of the spotlight for several months.

The last time they were seen as a family of five was back in December when they attended a special pantomime performance.

Sophie explained: “Keeping children out of the spotlight will never be a negative thing. 

“Children in the public eye have to deal with so much more than others the same age and allowing them time away from cameras and public appearances means that they have the opportunity to be normal children.”

Louis Theroux looks back at explosive row with Joe Exotic: 'I knew he was p****d off'

Famed documentary maker Louis Theroux, 50, has reunited with Tiger King star Joe Exotic, in a new series to help people “understand who he really is” following the huge success of Netflix’s seven-parter Murder, Mayhem, Madness, which hit worldwide dominance in 2020. The journalist, who has previously interviewed the flamboyant proprietor in 2011 while visiting his big cat wildlife park three times in order to learn more about the breeding industry, recalled the significant tension while filming the end of the doc, which saw the zookeeper storm out mid interview after claiming Theroux had an “agenda” against him.
“I knew that he was p****d off,” the broadcaster looked back at his time chatting with Exotic in a recent interview.

“He thought that I had an animal rights agenda. I also knew that I needed an ending for the documentary and needed to be seen to be holding him to account in some way, or at least posing some fairly pointed questions.”

But before he could get that far, Exotic lost his temper and refused to finish the interview.

“He ripped off his microphone and said, ‘F*** you. F*** Carole Baskin. F*** Tippi Hedren. F*** PETA. Yes, my animals are happy. Yes, I’m going to go on breeding.’ He had a tantrum,” Theroux recalled.

“Any time someone rips their mic off and tells you to f*** yourself… I won’t say it’s never happened before, but it’s not something you typically forget!”

The strop he remembered quite clearly, but he had to be reminded of how the aftermath played out and how he managed to get Exotic back on side by watching old tapes of the footage from 2011.

Theroux continued: “I said, ‘Joe, I’m just asking these questions. I don’t mean to upset you. Can we just keep talking?'”

The big cat breeder’s anger subsided as he decided to return to the set and finish the final scenes.

“I said, ‘Are we buds again?’ And he goes on, ‘I guess.’ And I said, ‘Can I have a hug?’, and went over and I hugged him,” the journalist went on to explain.

“What struck me was the fact that I seemed to need some emotional reassurance that he was OK. I felt protective of him, and I didn’t like the fact that I’d upset him.”

Although he described the feeling as “odd”, Theroux suggested that Exotic’s confidence almost protected his insecurities, but that some viewers saw through the smoke and mirrors.

It was in fact his likeable and infectious characteristics that captured the hearts of fans across the world, despite the blurred lines surrounding his alleged revenge plots towards rival sanctuary owners; a story that is told in great depth in Netflix’s investigation into the dark underworld of breeding exotic animals which propelled Exotic into the spotlight.

Theroux’s America’s Most Dangerous Pets is still available to watch on iPlayer and now a decade later, he has revisited the Tiger King carnival for a new, feature-length documentary, Shooting Joe Exotic.

And while this documentary is solely focused on the eccentric exotic zookeeper, he is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence on a “murder-for-hire” charge of his rival Carole Baskin.

Instead, the film draws on new interviews with those around him, as well as looking back at the unused footage from the 2011 trip.

But it does deal with the deadly plot, which Theroux admitted “makes virtually no reference to Tiger King, the series”.

“It’s something like a programme I might have made if Tiger King hadn’t existed,” he quipped to Radio Times.

But it also looks into the consequences of fame that came from the Tiger King phenomenom and those involved in it.

It has been rumoured that several dramatisations of Exotic’s story are in the pipeline, something the journalist confessed he would “love” to be apart of to make “television history”.

Theroux’s full interview is available to read now in Radio Times.
