The actor (81) was dressed as a Tudor king and had been asked what laws he would enact were he a ruling monarch. Blessed, who has campaigned against badger culling in the past, said he would ban the practice. Farmers then began airing their discontent at the former Flash Gordon actor, with one allegedly shouting and swearing at him, according to The Sun. Blessed reportedly responded with an expletive-laden tirade: “You’re all c****, I hope you all die of TB.” He then said it had been a bad idea for him to host a pig and poultry farmers’ event and left.
