Bafta award-winning actor Adam Deacon has been found guilty of posting abusive messages on social media about his former mentor, Noel Clarke.

Deacon, 32, was found to have sent Adulthood director Mr Clarke a ‘barrage’ of abusive and threatening messages after the pair fell out over the title of hit film Anuvahood.

He had branded 39-year-old Mr Clarke a ‘bully’ and accused him of sabotaging his career in hundreds of ‘consistent and continuous’ posts on Instagram and Twitter, Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court in London heard.

Once good friends, the pair stopped talking after a disagreement over the 2011 film Anuvahood, in which Deacon made his directorial debut, and which Mr Clarke claimed was a breach of copyright, the court heard.

Mr Clarke, who is also known for his role as Mickey in Doctor Who, told the court that he helped launch Deacon’s career by selecting him to star in his films Kidulthood and Adulthood.

Finding Deacon guilty of harassment, District Judge Shenagh Bayne told him: ‘I am satisfied that all of the messages that you sent out were sent out in the context of an ongoing grievance that you have got with Noel Clarke. 

‘And that clearly is a long-standing grievance – it goes back many, many years.’

She added that he would have known the response his messages would have received on social media and that, by posting pictures of Mr Clarke’s family, he had made ‘veiled threats’. Continue Reading….

When trolling goes wrong. 

I watched this play out via social media and it was relentless. I said this before and I will say it again, let this be a lesson to Deacon’s young and gullible fan base who allowed themselves to be brainwashed, egged on the abuse and also engaged in the reckless behaviour.

  1. His acting work must be drying up, because he obviously couldn’t go to one Marks & Spencer and get a new shirt. Must have been spending it all in Greggs.
