The world of Twitter just keeps getting weirder….
Last week Lord McAlpine was wrongly declared to be a paedophile, this week Simon Cowell responds to Martin Gore who in an earlier interview urged someone to shoot Cowell.
Gore in an interview with Music Week stated: âIâm not advocating violence, but I think somebody should shoot Simon Cowell.â
âHis influence in the music industry over the last God knows how many years itâs been now. Itâs just like, so many people think that thatâs what music is.â
âWhat happened to bands getting together? They are very few and far between now and the ones that do probably canât afford to get into a studio and make a record.â
Cowell took to Twitter to respond âI read Martin gore wants to shoot me. He was is in Depeche Mode. Do you realise how weird and stupid that makes you. Go and watch the news.â…âWhy I am angry about weirdo gore is a ton of people have got shot this year and people. Like weirdo gore encourage this.â
What do you think of Gore’s remarks?
If someone suggested you should be shot, would you take to Twitter – surely that’s a matter for the Police to investigate?
Whilst it could easily be argued that Cowell has done very little for the continued development of creative artists – is encouraging his death really an appropriate response?
Let us know what you think.
