Morrissey wears a ‘ fuck the Guardian’ t shirt at LA gigMorrissey has further alienated his former fan base by continuing down his current road by wearing a ‘fuck the Guardian’ t shirt at his recent LA gig. (read Louder Than War’s ‘open letter to Morrissey‘ )

The former Smiths singer and style icon wore the shirt, weeks after he described this newspaper as “the voice of all that is wrong and sad about modern Britain”.

The 60-year-old singer, who has repeatedly expressed support for the far-right party For Britain, has increasingly been lashing out at the Guardian in recent months.

Writing on his personal website in May, Morrissey claimed he was the victim of an “inexhaustible hate campaign” by the Guardian, imploring his supporters: “Please do not buy this wretched hate-paper, whose every 2019 utterance echoes the late Mary Whitehouse.”

  1. I don’t understand this article.
    How exactly has he “alienated his former fan base” by wearing a t-shirt exclaiming his disgust at The Guardian?
    Like we’re all ardent supporters of this ‘newspaper’?

    PS: 17.5k sell out at the Hollywood Bowl

  2. Why comment on a man who is willing to criticise everyone else but can’t take it criticism himself? He becomes increasingly sad and irrelevant and should be left to stew in his own juices.

  3. Alienated his former fan base? Eh? Considering that ‘The Guardian’ is one of the most hate filled and extreme left publications in the UK, he’s probably won a few fans after this stunt – good for him.

  4. Musicians are the expression of free speech and one of them decides to express his opinion on his clothing. If liberalism is the expression of freedom than I can’t imagine that he lost any free thinking fans
