Stewart Lee responds to Twitter imposter (NSFW)

Warning: contains strong language

Stewart Lee’s loathing of social media is well known, after a red button extra for the latest series of his Comedy Vehicle depicted a social networking guru (played by Kevin Eldon) trying to teach him to work across multiple platforms. But now the comedian has hit out at someone using his name and image on a Twitter account. And he didn’t hold back.

“A c*** is pretending to be me on Twitter, which is annoying,” the comedian wrote on his website. “It is not possible for me to stop this c*** without joining Twitter, which I will not do.

“I will never appear on Twitter,” he went on. “I will also never pretend to be on Twitter. The fact a c*** can do this is partly why.”

The fake account, @Stewlee, has since been deactivated.

“Stewart Lee is not on Twitter,” confirmed his former comedy partner Richard Herring, via his Twitter account. “Anyone claiming to be him is lying. Badly.

“He will never be on Twitter because he doesn’t understand it and has no desire to learn.”
