@Luke_Turner , one-third of artistic trio LeBeouf, Rönkkö and Turner, came under attack after speaking out against antisemitism and fascism
Individuals associated with LD50, a fascist-leaning gallery in London have flooded Turner with violent, disturbing, sinister and bigoted messages on his social media channels, some of which included death threats
One of the aggressors, Daniel Keller, spent 2 weeks harassing Turner on Twitter, saying antisemitism is “harmless” and accused Turner of “punching down” on antisemitism and fascism.
Although Keller has a history of attacking those who call out fascism, he wrote an article on that minimised the fascism in others

The far right talks a big game about ‘freedom of speech’ but they don’t believe in it, its a cover for their hate speech and their attacks on this project just underlined that reality.
Turner, due to feature his work at Athens Biennale, had to pull out from the event as he did not want to share a platform with Keller. Turner spoke to the organisers about Keller’s heinous comments, but they dismissed him instead.
We stand with @Luke_Turner on his stance against antisemitism and fascism ✊
