Blocked by Boy George

Boy George blocks ‘The Steeple Times’ on Twitter after we criticised the BBC’s promotion of this convicted repeat offender

 

If Boy George were a hetrosexual man and he had chained up a woman and held her hostage, few would leap to his support. A gay man, convicted of the abuse of a man in such a context, however, Boy George (born George O’Dowd), it seems, should be entirely excused despite having been jailed for just such a crime.

 

On Tuesday, Boy George responded to our editorial comment that suggested it might be wrong for the BBC to have lauded and given him a primetime position on their The Voice UK programme on Twitter. He remarked: “What people do with the grain of misinformation they have can be very upsetting. However, use the ‘block’ button!” before promptly doing just such.

He also tweeted to his 386,000 followers about our article containing “misinformation”

 

We entirely respect Mr O’Dowd’s decision to block the @SteepleTimes account – and in doing so he joins an esteemed coterie that includes the Saddam Hussein apologist George Galloway MP, the racist lefty Diane Abbott MP and the convicted paedophile Rolf Harris’ main supporter, Anne Pyke – but given the abuse that followed from his ‘crew’ we can only confirm how warped this musician’s supporters truly are. Amongst the comments received was one that numbered: “It’s highly entertaining! Kind of goes with the job” as a description of the offence committed against Norwegian Audun Carlsen.

Let it also not be forgotten that Boy George is far from a one-time offender. He has a series of convictions to his name both in the UK and America and on that basis, he can hardly be described as a role model to celebrated. The hypocritical ‘club’ that controls the BBC, we again state, should be ashamed of itself and instead of furthering the career of this felon should move on and promote new, untainted talent.

  1. What a repugnant dude Boy George is. These supporters no doubt also think Rolf Harris is alright too and that once he’s out he should be forgiven.

  2. Let’s not forget that Boy George didn’t just chain up and hold that man hostage! He and another man beat Carlsen and then produced a box of leather straps, chains, and sex toys, and told Carlsen that he was going to “get what he deserved”.
    Matthew is quite right. If Boy George had done that to a woman – hit, chained up and brought out a box of sex toys to abuse her with – he would still be in prison now. I am absolutely astounded that people excuse such behaviour or find it “amusing”. As I have said in previous comment, I believe anyone capable of that to be a dangerous individual – and the fact that he is now being lauded on prime-time TV is both disturbing and disgusting.

  3. Yes and no doubt, when Rolf get’s out, he will be employed by the BBC, with his new show:
    The Rolf Harris school of Didgeridoo Technique, for little boys.
    I’m Rolf The Ped diddle diddle diddle dum…

  4. How sad that this once talented entertainer seems to have degenerated into such an utterly repellant little oik……
