Louis Theroux returns to 'America's most hated family'


Louis Theroux has paid another visit to the so-called "most hated family in America" and found his own image on one of their controversial placards.

Theroux made a documentary in 2007 on the Phelps family church and their controversial pickets, where they try to antagonise communities with offensive slogans and anti-gay placards.

In another week long visit to Kansas, Theroux met Steve Drain, a new member of the Westboro Baptist Church congregation who compared him to Pontius Pilate.

America's Most Hated Family in Crisis is on BBC Two on 3 April at 2100 BST.
