When Oscar-Winning Actress Breaks Court Injunction to Protest Fracking on His Land, Farmer Decides to Get Major Revenge
When Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson joined a group of protesters near a proposed fracking site earlier this week, the farmer who leases the English land apparently didn’t take kindly to their presence.
As Thompson and her sister Sophie took part in a satirical “bake-off” under a tent to highlight cuisine created with renewable energy for a Greenpeace video, the farmer added his own flavor to the ingredients.
Several videos caught the farmer driving a truck in circles around the small encampment Wednesday, spraying liquid manure toward the protesters.
Thompson was under the tent the entire time and wasn’t hit, but the BBC said others with her indeed were in the line of fire.
