You'd be hard-pressed to find a more controversial, yet prolific, figure in American history as Hustler Magazine founder Larry Flynt.
The Magoffin County, Kentucky native started his career managing several bars in his hometown, eventually turning them into the first ones in the county to feature topless waitresses. He originally distributed Hustler as a newsletter for his clubs, but this soon ballooned into its own enterprise.
Once the magazine took off, Flynt found himself at the center of controversy almost immediately. He was tried in court for obscenity several times, briefly serving jail time before being acquitted. During one of these trials, he and his lawyer were shot by serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin, a white supremacist who claimed to have been outraged by an interracial pornography shoot featured in Hustler.
Flynt survived the attack but was paralyzed from the waist down and forced to spend the remainder of his life in a wheelchair. This did not deter Flynt in any way however, as his empire continued to grow, and he ultimately fathered four children between two of his wives. Director Oliver Stone famously recreated the man's life in the 1996 film The People Vs. Larry Flynt, where he was played by Woody Harrelson.
Suffice to say, Flynt's never been one to shy away from controversy. However, his most recent stunt might be his most controversial yet, as this time his sights aren't set on the legal system or his competitors, but the current President of the United States of America; Donald Trump.
