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.
