Comedian Lee Nelson pulls hilarious stunt
British comedian Lee Nelson, who made headlines last year when he threw fake dollar bills at former FIFA boss Sepp Blatter, attached a banner to Sir Philip Green’s superyacht that the billionaire is not going to be impressed by.
Nelson attached a gigantic “BHS destroyer” banner to Green’s superyacht today following the backlash the retail magnate faced after BHS collapsed into administration this year.
Nelson tweeted: “Good of Sir Philip Green to rename his £100m yacht to something more appropriate. I was glad to help.”

Last month, Green had a scuffle with a reporter in Ithaca and threatened to throw his camera in the sea.
The billionaire, who sold BHS for £1, was asked why he was on holiday while BHS’ pension mess was still going on.
To this, Green replied: “Go away or I am calling the police.”
When pestered further, Green said he would throw the reporter’s camera in the sea:
“That’s f****** going in the sea,” he said.
The reporter later said that the billionaire “shook hand off camera” but refused to answer any questions.
He can be heard repeating: “Why don’t you just go away, go away!”
