Jason Isaacs aka Lucius Malfoy went in on Sean Spicer after spotting him at an Emmys after party

The “poisonous purveyor of lies.”

BRITISH ACTOR JASON Isaacs is recognisable from The Patriot, Netflix’s The OA and his major upcoming role in the new Star Trek:Discovery.

But for a whole generation he’ll always be the evil Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter.

Even if his social media accounts in real life couldn’t be sounder

Reunited and it feels so good. #DeathCannotSaveHim #dobbyIsNOTaFreeElf #ts

A post shared by Jason Isaacs (@therealjasonisaacs) on

Isaacs was at the Emmys on Sunday night for his work on The OA – and witnessed the controversial appearance on stage of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

He made reference to Sean’s alternative facts that night on Twitter

But it was when he saw him at Netflix’s after party that the rage came down. His Instagram post on the sighting is going viral, summing up many people’s discomfort at having Spicer joking around on stage that night

It looks like he’s gone full Liam Neeson in that photo.

The post reads:

Hoping to forget politics for one night and bask in other people’s glory at the #Netflix #Emmys party and who do I spot at the bar late at night but the poisonous purveyor of lies #SeanSpicer.
What were the Emmys thinking celebrating this modern day Goebbels, who was the thuggish face of Orwellian doublespeak just moments ago?
Three surprising things about him: 1) He comes about up to my nipples 2) He doesn’t think he should hide himself under a rock from shame for the rest of his life. 3) He’s deeply unattractive, from the inside out. Has the aura of a giant festering abscess. Strange, since he was so charismatic at the (elevated) podium.

Finishing with the hashtags:

#TooSoon #MuchTooSoon

It touched on much of the criticism that came the Emmys way for having him on in the first place, but the sheer brutality and eloquence of his words have struck a chord.

He’s not messing around

Harry Potter fans are appreciating the contrast

But everyone who thought the Spicer comedy act was inappropriate appreciated where Isaacs was coming from

When it started making headlines in the States, Isaacs sent another cutting tweet

Zero f**ks given
