The reports suggested Flint recently took up the bloodsport, and though he has yet to comment on the story, activists at Anonymous have blasted him.

In a video, uploaded to, a masked figure says, "It has come to our attention that Keith has a fetish for murdering animals. It has come to our attention that Keith has been rubbing shoulders with Tory (Conservative Party) criminals whilst out fox hunting."

The masked man calls Flint a "traitorous f**kwit" for apparently turning his back on his band’s anti-establishment stance, adding, "We once had a great deal of respect for you... but now, Anonymous have targeted you with the message because you disgrace what we stand for."

And, in an eerie end to the message, the Anonymous representative concludes, "You still have a chance to change your ways, Keith. One year should do it. Expect us."

Sources tell the Daily Mail, Flint has reportedly invested in several hunting horses, adding his "enthusiasm for the sport" is the talk of "Essex hunting circles".
