Controversial MP Craig Kelly’s website gets a VERY foul-mouthed revamp after allegedly being taken over by an internet troll – but he claims it was never his
- Website bearing Craig Kelly’s name was allegedly ‘revamped’ by an internet troll
- Mr Kelly, the member for Hughes, was labelled a ‘f***head’ by unknown troll
- But the member for Hughes told Daily Mail Australia he never owned the site
- In recent weeks, Kelly frustrated many after sending unwanted text messages
- Questioned whether Covid-19 vaccines are effective, infuriating health experts
The supposed ‘personal website’ of controversial MP Craig Kelly has been given a dramatic makeover just weeks after he sent a series of unsolicited text messages to 14 million Australians about Covid vaccines.
Reports alleged Mr Kelly, the member for Hughes, used the website name craigkellymp.com to share his policies but after failing to renew his payment for the domain name of the website it was hijacked by an internet troll connected to the YouTuber FriendlyJordies, The Daily Telegraph reported.
But according to the member for Hughes that website name was only registered on September 7 and wasn’t previously owned by the politician.
‘Craig Kelly is a massive f***head’, a heading on the website states, with an image of Mr Kelly reading a book Photoshopped to read ‘gigantic ar**s’.
Mr Kelly’s political benefactor and United Australia Party founder Clive Palmer also features on the website.

The member for Hughes has angered many after spamming people about supposed adverse vaccine reactions.
A supporter of YouTube sensation Jordan Shanks is believed to be the unknown internet troll – but not Shanks himself
‘Craig forgot to renew his f***ing lease,’ the troll has written on the site. ‘Send memes now.’
A further video created by YouTuber FriendlyJordies on the two United Australia Party figureheads also features.
In an added twist, a fundraiser link supporting FriendlyJordies is on the website.
The popular YouTuber – also known as Jordan Shanks – is currently locked in a legal battle with Deputy Premier John Barilaro, who is suing the social media sensation for defamation.
However, it is believed Shanks is not the internet troll.
The development comes after Australia’s medicines regulator – the Therapeutic Goods Administration – accused Mr Kelly of breaching copyright and demanded he cease spamming people with text messages about supposed adverse vaccine reactions.
Mr Kelly, who quit the Liberals over his refusal to stop spouting unfounded Covid-19 treatment claims, has engaged in a far reaching text message campaign about vaccines.
This includes a message with a link taking people to a database of adverse event notifications for coronavirus jabs.
Lawyers for the TGA have written to the embattled MP alleging he is in breach of copyright.
Many Australian residents have randomly received text messages from Mr Kelly and the UAP in recent weeks. While there is no law to stop politicians sending voters text messages, the alleged copyright breach identified by the TGA is a different story.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Mr Kelly for comment.
