Larry Flynt is a Cultural Marxist American pornography publisher and the head of Larry Flynt Publications (LFP). His public image is a pervy, middle-aged man in a wheelchair.
Soon after Harvey Weinstein's exposure as a rapist in October 2017, Flynt, offered $10,000,000 for information leading to President Donald Trump's impeachment meaning Flynt has a lot of skeletons in his closet to expose!
LFP mainly produces pornographic videos and magazines, most notably Hustler. The company has an annual turnover approximating $150 million. Larry Flynt has had several legal battles involving the First Amendment, and has run for public office a number of times. He has bipolar disorder and is paralyzed from the waist down due to injuries sustained from an assassination attempt.
During a legal battle related to obscenity in Gwinnett County, Georgia, on March 6, 1978, he and his local lawyer Gene Reeves Jr. were shot in an ambush near the county courthouse in Lawrenceville. Joseph Paul Franklin has confessed to the shootings, claiming he was outraged by an interracial photo shoot in Hustler. Franklin, who is currently serving a life sentence in prison for unrelated murder charges, was never brought to trial for the attempted killing. Flynt has made statements indicating he believes Franklin's story, and some law enforcement officials have the same opinion. There remain skeptics, however, and the issue may never be resolved. Flynt's injuries left him paralyzed from the waist down, though his lawyer Reeves recovered more fully. The injury caused Flynt intense, constant pain, and he was addicted to painkillers until multiple surgeries deadened the affected nerves. After the attack, he renounced Christianity and moved with Althea to a Bel-Air mansion in Los Angeles. He currently resides in Santa Monica.
He also suffered a stroke caused by one of several overdoses of his painkiller medication; he recovered but has had pronunciation difficulties since.Flynt disowned his eldest daughter Tonya Flynt-Vega after she became a Christian anti-pornography activist. In her 1998 book Hustled, she claims that Flynt sexually abused her as a child. Flynt has denied the charges.
