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”.
Shoot’s going great!
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.”
There was a short pause before a baffled Louis comes back: “Well, if I’d done that I’d think about apologising but I didn’t accuse you, I said so much of what you talked about and what’s been talking about – “
He was cut off as the podcast host interrupted: “I’m not hearing an apology here, I’m going to hang up.”
Due to the nature of a live steam, Express.co.uk were unable to capture Louis’ reply.
But following on from the conversation, Beardson brought in his pal Nick Fuentes, a US far-right and white nationalist political commentator.
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)
