Charlie Hunnam is speaking out against online bullies who call themselves fans who have taken to attacking his longtime girlfriend.
The "Sons of Anarchy" star sent a message to Tina Lou, who runs a Facebook fanpage for him, to post on his behalf. The message detailed how women on social media have been trolling his girlfriend, jewelry designer Morgana McNelis.
Dear ladies of social media,
This is a message from Charlie Hunnam. I have no social media so I have asked my good friend and long time supporter Tina Lou to post this message for me.
It has been brought to my attention that there is a group of immature girls posting a large number of hard messages aimed at my long time girlfriend. I would respectfully ask you to stop doing this. She is an intelligent, beautiful, kind person who just tried to live a simple life and has nothing to do with the entertainment industry. If you want to talk shit, talk shit about me, leave her out of it. What is most confusing is that these negative and totally unprovoked attacks appear to be coming from the people who call themselves my fans. Think about the logic of this for a moment. This is a girl I love very much and have spent the last eleven years of my life with and hope to spend the next sixty years. She has been my loyal and supportive partner long before I had any success or money. Why would you attack her out of admiration for me? It makes no sense. Perhaps you might think about spending the time you dedicate on attacking her on improving the quality of your own life, as it is well known that this type of random hatred usually comes from deep rooted personal unhappiness. This about this. Also, I guarantee if you knew her you would feel very silly, as my girlfriend is one of the kindest, nicest, most virtuous people I have ever met. There is literally nothing about her or her behavior that deserves this type of condemnation.
Thank you in advance for respecting this request.
Best Wishes, Charlie Hunnam
McNeils took to Facebook last week to thank those who offered kind words in the midst of bullying.
Hunnam, 35, and McNeils have been dating since 2007, according to PopSugar. They live in a ranch together outside Hollywood. While they maintain privacy, he has mentioned some sweet things about their relationship, like the ring he wears that she designed, engraved with the words "I love you endlessly."
