Outlander star Sam Heughan has hailed ‘brave and intelligent’ Mhairi Black after she gave a powerful speech in parliament on international women’s day revealing her daily Twitter troll hell.
The Scottish hunk took to social media to praise the SNP MP for being an inspiration after she spoke out during a misogyny debate.
Sam, 31, backed the 23-year-old politician after the revealed some of the vile abuse she receives online on a daily basis.
Paisley and Renfrewshire South MP Mhairi repeated the shocking comments, becoming the first MP to use the word c*** in parliament.
She said she had been targeted because she is a woman.
Sharing a clip of her speech, Sam wrote: “Brave and intelligent yet again @MhairiBlack is an inspiration”
The Outlander star was praised by fans for his support.
One wrote: “Thank you for sharing this Sam! Having only been active on Twitter for a year I am shocked by the behaviour of many on social media… hiding behind keyboards.”
Another quoted Mhairi’s speech, adding: “And when it becomes normalized, it creates an environment that allows women to be abused. Thanks for sharing this.”
During her speech, Mhairi said: “I could soften some of this by talking about the c-word but the reality is there is no softening when you’re targeted with these words and you’re left reading them on my screen every day, day in, day out.
