Hugh Grant slams Donald Trump Jr with hunting photo
He is not impressed with an old photo of him with a trophy.
Hugh Grant has branded the son of US President Donald Trump a “w*****”.
The Four Weddings And A Funeral star shared a photograph of Donald Trump Jr brandishing a knife and holding the tail of an elephant he had hunted, along with the caption: “Americans often ask me to define the British word ‘W*****’.”

The pictures were taken on a trip to Zimbabwe in 2010, with other shots showing Trump Jr and brother Eric posing with a leopard they killed, as well as a hunted buffalo and their raft of guns.
They resurfaced in 2015 when actress Mia Farrow shared the leopard photograph after the death of Cecil the Lion.
She added the caption: “What sort of person could kill this beautiful animal? Trump sons could.”

The younger Trump is currently at the centre of a media storm after the New York Times claimed he met with a Russian lawyer last year in the expectation of getting damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump Jr has retained a lawyer who called the report “much ado about nothing”.
At the time the hunting pictures were first made public, Trump Jr defended his enthusiasm for hunting, writing: “Not a pr move I didn’t give the pics but I have no shame about them either. I HUNT & EAT game.”
He added: “I hunt it all. Just love to be outdoors w a gun or bow .”
