this bothered me

A while back I was looking on ebay and I found a shirt that disturbed me...I was wondering if any of you had seen it. Its black and on the front has a big pic of a gun and under the gun it says "KILL BONO". I really hate it and think its stupid......I guess they were made a while ago by some loser punk band....its just something that doestn' need to exist....

Anyway, yeah I didn't like the shirt at all it really pissed me off big time. I mean what if his kids saw it or something.....or what if a mob of Bono fans saw it and kicked the living crap out of the person wearing it, ...ha ha ha....I would!

Someone actually wore one of these shirts to the Columbus Popmart show, Bono pointed to the guy and said that he wanted that shirt, so the guy took it off and gave it to him. Bono put it on and integrated it into Bullet the Blue Sky. Think there may be a photo of Bono with the shirt on floating around somewhere...

I was at this concert in Columbus. People were giving that guy shit during the entire concert for wearing that shirt. I threw something at him (heh heh). Bono really did handle it well.....I kept worrying that he would see it.

Why on earth would someone wear this shirt to a U2 concert? Not that someone should ever wear this type of shirt

but really, why spend all that money on a concert to go and wear a shirt like that. I hate to say the guy wearing the shirt was asking for it, but well, he was

I heard that one of the girls of Kittie (you remember that chick band?) wore a shirt that said "U2 is a boy band" or something like that

That person had no brains, or class, and he was looking to stir up trouble. Wearing a "Kill Bono" shirt to a U2 concert would be almost like wearing a swastika in a Synagogue. Don't be surprised if you're thrown out on your ass, after getting it kicked.

But Bono rose above it, showed that he truly had class and wit, and a massive capacity for forgiveness. Yet another demonstration of why we love him.

there is no end to my amazement at the stupidity that exists in this world. at least we have U2 to look up to, especially to handle the situation as they (Bono) did. He is THE man

ugh !

I hadn't heard about this! [ of course, that's right- I was kinda out of it during the Pop tour time]. Yes, he handled it with great alpomb.

Still, I am not totally suprised, horrified-yes! It also could be a certain type of American rightwinger

sends *******white light protection******* Bono's way.

I work in retail and about a year ago, a guy came into the store wearing this exact shirt. I was walking in to work with my friends and they all saw it before me...they turned around to see what I would do. I was too dumbfounded to even come up with words. They all said they were waiting to watch me cry

I've never seen anyone wearing that one, but I did see a teenage guy once wearing a "kill Britney" shirt
