this thread is turning into a very funny one

Mmm maybe it would have been best if the phone had hit chris in the face. It would have hurt for a moment but i remember a similar thing with russel crowe would earn the "victim" about 7.5 million dollars or so

Now that would be something.


And then Chizip would yell back, "No, play Dirty Day you bastard!"

and then of course, there would be a rumble . . . or a dance off

One time Barbara Bush scolded me in church when I was like 10, because I was whispering and pointing at her and George Bush, who were sitting in the pew behind us. Good times...

Man I wish Bono would yell at me in concert.

Uhh has Bono not did many things like this before over the years? Everyone gets tetchy from time to time...i think Bono gets worked up more than most people...there are the stories about him and his brother really going at it...his temper tantrums at school...this kinda thing is part of his character...he apologised because he knew he was wrong but it was just a heat of the moment thing, it is just him...no need to crucify him over it...

Thanks, Chizip.

Kelly, you are clever enough to know that you're just trying to rewrite history here. You know full well, that there's more to it than what you repeated here:

The concert started and I saw Bono reach for my phone while I was trying to take a picture of him. I gave it to him b/c I thought he was going to take a pic of himself. He just put it in his pocket and then a few seconds later took it out and threw it back at me. It dropped, and the 11 year old girl in front of me grabbed it off the floor. Bono then said "you dropped it."
Now, if Bono had just said the thing about "put the fucking phone away" or whatever, I would just have thought of him as silly and immensely hypocritical in this situation (he doesn't have a problem with asking people to take out their cell phones during One, when it suits HIM, does he?), but it would have been forgivable. However, if the part, I just quoted, is true I'd have to say that that is pretty disappointing. I'm hard pressed to see anything but a spoiled, hypocritical prick of a rock star being disgustingly disrespectful to the people who have paid and admired him for years.

For fuck's sake!

Bono just had a bad night, man!

All rock stars are fallable, y'know.

I bet you've had friends who've you fell out with then made up with again because of a stupid incident.

It's called being NORMAL!

Because someone is a rock star does not mean they can't be an idiot now and again.

Get over it.

Well Christopher, you were could to take it so well. From your account, Bono shouldn't have shouted at you but then we are all human we all make mistakes sometimes I think he realised that when he apologised to you. Anyways now you've got your own unique U2 story to tell people

Yeh, that's because I've moved on and learnt.

What about you?

And I'm addressing you.

Actually, I was just reply to the post that thought this item might be newsworthy.
