Right Said Fred have found themselves the victims of relentless trolling after they attended the anti-lockdown protest on Saturday, September 26.
Brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass have been criticised online after one protester shared a photo of them on Twitter.
Posing in between the two siblings, Scott Rock wrote alongside the picture: "What an absolute breath of fresh air to have Richard and Fred (legends) openly attending the ‘we do not consent’ London event.
"Chico's great but I think we need more brave celebs doing this to help wake the others," he added.
However, fellow Twitter users were not so complimentary and quickly commented on the snap – with many leaving sarcastic comments.
"Errr the Right Said Fred aren't legends mate, they're helmets," one person replied.
Another person posted: "You gotta laugh at 'Legends' though [laughing emoji] When have they ever done anything worthwhile or relevant?
"They were objects of ridicule in the early 90s and now, knowing they're Covidiots, just adds fuel to that fire."
A third person added: "Legends really?," while a fourth said: "They are neither brave or legends."
Many others poked fun at the duo's most popular song I'm Too sexy and suggested they could release a new version about not wearing face masks.
Referring to the protest last weekend, Right Said Fred told their 13.5k followers: "There was a really good atmosphere in Trafalgar Square today."
They also retweeted plenty of videos from the event – some which showed police allegedly "punching a woman".
The brothers later went on a blocking spree as they hit out at the haters in a scathing tweet.
"If the best you’ve got is Far Right Said Fred, Deeply S**tty, Too Sexy For My Mask, Bald C**ts or t**ts then don’t be surprised if you’re blocked for being predictable and boring," they wrote.
They then added: "We forgot Wrong Said Fred… that’s some clever f***ing word play right there."
When one Twitter user called them out over the Q Anon sign in the picture, they replied: "That’s the foundation of free speech, allowing people to express themselves.
"It’s irrelevant who we agree with or disagree with."
Another then added: "But then you are blocking people," to which the pop stars replied: "Of course, it’s social media, it’s not real life. Plus predictable insults deserve no better treatment."
