“‘Peaky Blinders’ Warns Ron DeSanti’s Campaign”


Ron DeSantis’ 2024 presidential campaign is announced on behalf of the Peaky Blinders.

The team behind the hit British crime drama on Wednesday criticized Florida’s Republican governor’s campaign team for sharing on Twitter a widely criticized anti-LGBTQ video showing images of actor Cillian Murphy as mobster Tommy Shelby on the series.

Footage from the show was “obtained without authorization or official license,” according to a statement signed by Murphy, screenwriter Steven Knight, Caryn Mandabach Productions, Tiger Aspect Productions and Banijay Rights.

“We do not endorse or endorse the narration of the video and strongly discourage the use of the content in this manner,” it said.

The DeSantis War Room account, which bills itself as the Governor’s Rapid Response Team, shared the video last week.

The clip praised DeSantis’ anti-LGBTQ policies in Florida and attacked former President Donald Trump’s alleged support for the community.
