and also the fact that 90% of the haters are just using the "Bono" name to gain more attention to their cause/article/column/blog.

U2 spat was a publicity stunt, says Hofmeyr
February 17 2011 at 01:31pm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr has admitted that his much publicised rant about U2's lead singer Bono was nothing more than a publicity stunt.

According to EyeWitness News reports, the Pampoen singer also said that while he doesn’t have any regrets about his outburts, he does regret missing out on the U2 concert on Sunday night.

Hofmeyr has however acknowledged that he would go to any lengths to focus attention on the deaths of Afrikaner farmers.

He tweeted on Thursday: “Off course its a P Stunt. For a cause Ive sold my soul to.And Bono slipped up.Forget me.Check genocide.Thx.Im elated with his explanation.”

It really gets me too when people say a lot of things againts Bono, and I remember that when I was younger, I get crazy and angry when my acquaintances and friends said that Bono is an hypocritical and he pretends to be an activist. But now I understand that no matter how much scandal I make (or even defending him with strong arguments), people´re not going to stop to criticize Bono, because they think that they have all the rights....

Nobody actually can say they know Bono. All we know is he has a big Ego. Tonnes of people hate Obama and yet he comes across as a decent guy through the media. But behind the lens, Bono or Obama could be assholes or nice guys - you just can't know. But people are often judgmental one way or the other.

People hate on Bono because he has an ego, he puts himself out there, and (admit it) sometimes he can be pretty easy to make fun of.

Not that I hate him, he's always seemed like a really cool guy. Just trying to come up with some reasons why there are so many people who dislike Bono (and U2, for that matter) for no reason.

think of the groups or solo artists Bono/U2 fans dont like, would you want to be mind-fuked into liking them/that person?



no, you'd be pretty pissed off at someone's attempt.

dont give what you wouldn't want to receive..



someday U2 wont exist, but as history in the music industry.
Off topic, but I've always been curious about this, but why do you always spell 'fuck' as 'fuk'?

She's from Belfast. Not to generalize, but they tend to type how they talk with a ton of shorthand, complete with all of the akk, wee, fs, etc. etc.

Haha, sorry if you take offense to that mad1, don't mean it that way. Just an observation from all of my family/friends back in N. Ireland.
