Laurence Fox is dropped on the phone by his acting agent, but insists he has not done anything that could be considered "racist" and calls for "common sense".

  • Laurence Fox said in a tweet last night that his agent put me on the phone
  • He said the call re-affirmed "why I'm doing exactly what I'm doing".
  • Last month, Fox was involved in Twitter spats with people who called him "racist".
  • In September Fox launched the Reclaim Party to "Reclaim British Values"

Laurence Fox announced that he had been dropped on a phone call by his acting agent but insisted that he had done nothing "that could be considered racist".

The controversial Lewis star said on Twitter that his agent "put me on the phone," reiterating "why I do exactly what I do".

Last month, Fox was involved in bitter Twitter spats with a number of people who referred to him as "racists." He replied, making unsubstantiated claims that they were "pedophiles". He later deleted the tweets.

Two people accused Fox – LGBT charity Stonewall vice chairman Simon Blake and British drag race star Crystal – announced they would be suing him for defamation.

A month earlier, Fox had set up the Reclaim Party to fight for freedom of expression, "regain British values" and challenge what he sees as the "culture war" in Britain.

In his tweet on Thursday night, Fox said, "I want to thank my acting agent who just left me on the phone for confirming exactly why I'm doing what I'm doing."

"I'm still waiting for a single example of everything I've ever said or done that could ever be considered racist. We will reclaim freedom, fairness and common sense."

Fox, 42, is hoping to have dozens of candidates for his The Reclaim Party across the UK and has received sizable sums of money from former Tory donors.

The Lewis star says he wants to create a movement for people who are "tired of knowing that we represent exactly what we have stood against in history".

Fox first came to prominence in January when he appeared as a panelist on BBC1's Question Time.

During the program, he denied allegations that the Duchess of Sussex was treated "racially" by the British press.

Fox was also embroiled in a heated debate with academic and ethnicity lecturer Rachel Boyle after she called him "a privileged white man".

He responded by accusing Ms. Boyle, an academic at Edge Hill University on Merseyside, of being "racist".

As the argument continued the following day, he quoted Martin Luther King's 1963 speech "I have a dream" about life in a nation where children "are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

He said, “This is the position I took last night and which I live by in life. If you can improve it, I'll be all ears. Or you can keep screaming racially at me and I can keep having fun, good chuckles at your expense. The tide turns & # 39 ;.

Supporters are former Tory donor Jeremy Hosking.

The Lewis star says he wants to create a movement for people who are "tired of knowing that we represent exactly what we have stood against in history".

Laurence Fox and his previous controversies

Jan 16, 2020: Fox was embroiled in a heated debate with academic and ethnicity lecturer Rachel Boyle after she referred to him as "a privileged white man" on BBC Question Time.

The 41-year-old accused Ms. Boyle, an academic at Edge Hill University in Merseyside, of being "racist" after calling him "a white privileged man" for denying the Duchess of Sussex.

As the argument continued the following day, he quoted Martin Luther King's 1963 speech "I have a dream" about life in a nation where children "are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

He said, “This is the position I took last night and which I live by in life. If you can improve, I'll be all ears. Or you can keep screaming racially at me and I can keep having fun, good chuckles at your expense. The tide turns & # 39 ;.

Jan 17, 2020: The actor later announced that he was not dating women under 35 because they were "too woken up" and many of them were "absolutely insane" during an interview on the Delingpod podcast.

During the podcast, Fox said he broke off a relationship with a former partner because she praised a Gillette ad that highlighted "toxic masculinity."

Jan 23, 2020: Fox apologizes for his comments regarding the inclusion of a Sikh soldier in Sir Sam Mendes' 1917 film of World War I.

The actor had originally spoken of "the oddity of the occupation" of a Sikh soldier and has received widespread criticism from historians who have confirmed that Sikhs served in the British Army.

Fox later tweeted: “Fellow people who are Sikhs, I am just as moved by the sacrifices your relatives have made as I am by the loss of all those who die in war, regardless of their beliefs or skin color.

"Please accept my apologies for being as clumsy as I put myself."

June 18, 2020: In a play for the viewer, Fox asked if Meghan Markle had resigned as the working queen because she was not in the spotlight.

In September 2020, Fox said he was "canceled" by colleague Rebecca Front for blocking him on Twitter for using the counter slogan "All Lives Matter" in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Fox later apologized for revealing this by tweeting a private text conversation between the couple in which Front explained their reasons for the blockage.
