Comedian Lee Hurst has been suspended from Twitter for abusive Chris Whitty tweets
Hurst made the comments after footage emerged of Professor Whitty being harassed
by two men.
After the video of England‘s Chief Medical Officer being manhandled came out,
Whitty received widespread support, with Boris Johnson condemning the “despicable
harassment” and “intimidation” that Prof Whitty was subjected to. However, so-called
comedian and “proud covidiot” Lee Hurst decided that the attack was “not enough.”

On Tuesday, he tweeted to his 18,000 followers: “Whatever has happened to Chris Whitty is not enough.”
He followed this up by tweeting: “I’m not putting any caveats into the Chris Whitty story. Fk him and his #FullPay, care home murdering scummy pals.”
Hurst then rounded off his tripe-posting attack by saying: “If there was no video footage of Chris Whitty we would have been told he was beaten up.”
Many reported Hurst to both Twitter and the police after seeing the tweets, claiming that he was “inciting hatred.”
Well, the social media platform clearly agreed, with Hurst’s account now suspended from the site.
This is the second time this year that Hurst has had his account suspended. In March, he had his account suspended for a ‘joke’ he made about Greta Thunberg.
One of those who shared their anger at Hurst’s remarks was outspoken ex-rugby player Brian Moore, who accurately labeled Hurst as “ignorant and a coward.”
