FIVE GUYS COMING TO THE UK!
I used to go to the very first Five Guys in Alexandria, Virginia in college.
Brendan Coyle, who plays the embattled valet John Bates on PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” gave a fan a dressing down on Twitter.
Follower Roberta Knighton responded disapprovingly to a tweet Coyle had made criticizing former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, calling Coyle’s remarks “beneath him.”
Coyle, 49, shot back at the fan in two tweets, The Sun reported.
"Hard to know how to respond to that…but go f*** yourself feels about right," the actor posted.
He followed up with a reiteration of his insult.
"You have no idea what is beneath me…p.s. go f*** yourself."
The 53-year-old Knighton was taken aback at the aggressive reply.
"He comes across as utterly sweet and gently and then speaks to people like that," Knighton said.
Coyle is currently in Vietnam filming new flick “Noble.”

Watch a 1963 video of British soldiers conducting a military exercise after dropping acid
Back during the Cold War, the military wanted to find out if LSD could be used to incapacitate enemy forces. So they administered the drug to unsuspecting British soldiers, and sent the squaddies off to perform their duties. This short video, which is as hilarious as it is disturbing, chronicles the British soldiers’ hapless attempt to complete a military exercise while completely tripping balls.
The British weren’t the only country to conduct such experiments. Back during the 1950s, the U.S. Army conducted experiments with soldier volunteers at its Edgewood, MD arsenal. These experiments lasted until 1972, in which soldiers were given synthetic marijuana, LSD and two dozen other psychoactive drugs — all with the intent of developing chemical weapons to debilitate enemy soldiers.
Wonder how many of these soliders went on to become hippies.
