THE FRONTMAN OF The Prodigy, one of the most popular dance groups of the 1990s, has been called out by hacking group Anonymous regarding his alleged interest in fox-hunting.

Keith Flint, a dancer with the band and vocalist on two of their biggest hits Firestarter and Breathe, has settled into a more gentrified way of life in recent years.

Anonymous it seems object to Flint taking part on a fox-hunt recently.

The group have issued a (somewhat graphic, so viewer discretion is advised) video giving Flint one year to mend his ways.

“This is a message to Keith Flint. It has come to our attention that Keith has a fetish for murdering animals,” the video states.

It has come to our attention that Keith has been rubbing shoulders with Tory criminals whilst out fox-hunting.
Keith likes the torture and killing of animals. How ironic. Keith killed a deer. Now Anonymous will politically kill Keith.

The message narration also calls Flint a “murderous f***wit”.

“You still have a chance to change your ways Keith. One year should do it. Expect us.”

Flint for his part seems to be taking the threat seriously.

In a Facebook post on The Prodigy’s page Flint refutes the idea that he has killed any animals.

Message from Keef Flint: ‘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.

Whether the story will end there remains to be seen.
