Charlie Hunnam Defends Girlfriend Morgana McNelis Against Internet Haters

Charlie Hunnam is asking fans to stop the negative comments about his girlfriend Morgana McNelis.

“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,” Charlie wrote on Facebook, via a friend, on a Sons of Anarchy fan page. The post has been taken down, but you can see it here. “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.”

“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,” Charlie continued.

Morgana, meanwhile, responded on her company Maison de Morgana‘s Facebook page.

“I just wanted to say I very deeply appreciate all of the kind words said in my defense. I feel infinite gratitude for all of the support that is being shown towards my relationship and business. The outpouring of positivity gave me courage to keep being vulnerable and to continue to put myself and my designs out into the universe. It’s so encouraging and comforting to know that there are classy, smart, beautiful, compassionate women in this world supporting other women. I couldn’t do this without you ladies,” Morgana wrote.

    Lets take advantage of free speech while we can. Ur gf is butt ugly. Deal with it.

  • xyz

    The girl was a drug dealer basically for most of her working life, she claims to be a jewelry designer, but actually works full time in a dive bar making drinks. Also claimed to be a former model, no one has ever seen her model a damn thing, no comp card, nothing. Which I don’t blame her for, but mostly she just leeches off Charlie as far as we can tell. Is from a major white trash criminal family, Leighton Meester is her cousin. Mom ordered a man whacked in Florida, and he is dead although she got off on technicality. Her cousin was court martialed in the Air Force Academy for rape and sodomy, her Dad, Aunt, Uncle and Grandfather all did major federal time. Mom was the first woman ever on the US Marshal’s most wanted list.

  • A S Hun

    Get out of your grandmas basement every now and then, will ya? There’s a whole world out there.

  • GFW™

    But he loves her. Deal with that. And after coming to Hollywood, AND becoming successful, he’s STILL with her.

  • GFW™

    So what?
    Is there a part of he loves her anyway you struggle with?

  • smooshy

    this is a shame. Charlie loves this woman and has been with her for years and his “fans” are bashing her on the internet. They aren’t fans. They are obsessed trolls.

  • bestyguest

    I like Charlie and loved him in Crimson Peak. But luckily I’m well beyond the teen years so I’m not tempted at all to insult someone who seems a perfectly nice person with no serious criminal record who happens to be dating a HW star. Good on Charlie for sticking out for his partner.

  • dalovelee

    Uh welcome to the age of the internet. The only solution is for both of them to block her social sites and of course avoid reading comments by posters. To be honest this just caused more attention sort of smacking a beehive…This will only make trolls come out in droves. It’s great that he stands by her..but why read anonymous posters comments??

  • Visitor

    Charlie, I loved you since Nicholas Nickelby. You shouldn’t care what Internet trolls write about you and your girlfriend. These people are jealous and have no life. They’re filled with bitterness.

  • disqus_tu0VPi4B9Z

    He is a man in all sense. He defends his girl and protect their relation. They are together for long time and fans need to respect them.

  • ZAK

    People like you are just pathetic. Get off of the internet and go and get laid. Hunnam is never going to bang you.

  • Camila C.S. Oliveira

    Jamie Dornan will come next. A lot of people hate his wife too.

  • Annabelle

    A lot of young girls and women need better role models other than these celebrities and their gf/wives. Young women need to stop trying to bag a rich celebrity and just be their OWN rich Tycoon.

  • Ali

    Tbh it usually ends up being grown women spouting off their hatred towards girlfriends rather than teens.

  • J.alexandra

    Awww, I’m glad they both said something. Maybe the harsh comments will settle a bit now that they shared how they felt about it. I never understood the point of tearing someone else down. Does it make the person feel better? I know it doesn’t for me. Yeah I love Charlie hunnam, but I know I’ll never end up with him( though a girl can fantasize about it lol). One day I’ll find my own version of CH and be happy to call him mine. Wish them the best.

  • Isabel

    I understand the sentiment but I’m surprised he actually gave any comments the time of day. Ignoring anything they perceived as negative would make more sense considering, in similar situations, calling people out made the chatter much worse. Obviously, they hope the opposite is true but I wouldn’t be too optimistic.

  • Gina

    Ya, hear that ladies? Knock it off.

  • Penny Dreadful

    I don’t know from who about either of these folks. But the lady’s face looks … odd. To put it mildly.

  • millerz

    I really respect him for doing this. So many guys in this industry don’t defend their girlfriends from bullies and haters and jealous fans because they’re too afraid to lose fans. He puts her first and that’s amazing. I wish he were single ;) but I’m happy for them lol

  • IMO

    you haven’t seen other boards.His diffenders afa true fans ignore his words and attack anyone who has a question about the matter. Your comment would be ripped in shreds.
    Sad thing is what i was saying in previous posts there is no smoke with out a fire and what is upseting, that now it all gone straight to PR instead of fixing problem

  • GingerAnn1212

    So Moganna is responsible for her relatives being criminals? My grandfather ran a Speakeasy and whore house during prohibition, does that make it my fault? Even if she was a one time pot dealer, who cares, it is in her past. He loves her, he has to live with her. Their relationship has nothing to do with you.

  • Dee

    wow, the fact that he had to address this….??? thats sad.

  • Nicola

    I don’t think it’s necessarily due to them not wanting to lose fans but realizing that bringing attention to the negativity often makes the situation worse and turns out to be pointless. I’ve seen a handful of male celebrities ask fans to leave their family members, partners, or friends alone and all that accomplished was an extra vile barrage of hate via social media.

  • Kyle Millert

    Both his and his girlfriend’s statements were really well put. I think him pointing it out will probably help deflate interest in picking on her in the longrun because It’s a been there done that. Jealousy and the internet manufactured “models” culture club who seem to think elitist beauty is the only thing that matters don’t understand what Charlie and his actually very pretty gf seem to have. A real life not based on make-believe public personas that take hours to primp and perfect just to get one good photo.

  • millerz

    thats true I’m just thinking back to the days when Zac efron and Vanessa Hudgens were together and he’d say fans were disrespectful to her but he’d never call them out on it. I was always like “stand up for your girl!” I guess everyones different but regardless people are are crazy lol

  • Penny Dreadful

    It’s hilarious how all the stans in this thread are trying so desperately to ignore that the lady’s face doesn’t look f*cking insane. She might be the sweetest person, but her face is the elephant in the room. A person attached to someone with a public life can’t do that to themselves and expect no one to notice or comment on it.

  • Tigerlilly

    It’s sweet from him to defend his love but I’m afraid he’s wasting his time. Haters, trolls whatever aren’t able for sanity.

  • Janelle Maars

    Funny to see this. Trolls have nothing to do with her misery. It’s her own actions. When Morgana first moved to California years ago, I think she was 18 or 19 years old she supported herself by prostituting herself. She’s a convicted drug dealer and from someone who personally knows her family she is quite the con artist. Charlie picked a winner.
