“You hoofw*****g bungle c***” Fans of Martin Compston pile in on bigot who branded star “fenian”


MARTIN Compston has been praised for his classy response to a bigot who branded him a “fenian” just two minutes after following him on Instagram.

A Chris Roberts wrote on Instagram yesterday (tue): “@mrmartincompston f* DS Arnott ya fenian f*****.”

It’s not clear what prompted the outburst, which references a detective from Line of Duty played by Compston, who is a well-known Celtic supporter.

Compston screenshotted the bizarre outburst and posted it on his Instagram page saying: “That escalated quickly. Welcome Chrissy hope you like pictures of my dog otherwise between ones of DS Arnott and ‘fenians’ celebrating could be a tough follow for ye pal!”

The social media user attacked Compston unaware of the backlash

Compston’s fans then piled in on “Chrissy”.

In a remark, described by others as “comment of the century”, Jenniferholmes297 said: “Who is this f***** pleb? Jog on chrissy you hoofw*****g bungle c***. We love you @mrmartincompston.”

Hannahsang91 said: “Proper mugged him off.”
