Sinead O'Connor Returns To Twitter To "Annoy White Supremacists"


Sinead Oconnor

Sinead O’Connor has returned to Twitter a week after saying that she never wanted to spend time with white people again, explaining that she was coming back because she loves to “annoy white supremacists”.

The 51 year old singer wrote in a series of tweets last week, which even she acknowledged was racist at the time: “I’m terribly sorry. What I’m about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it. But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again (if that’s what non-Muslims are called).”

Now, however, she claims that she made the comments because “f*****g idiots” had been spamming her, and that she had hoped to get her Twitter account removed, thereby stopping her from having to hear from them.

On Thursday (October 25th), Irish Imam Shaykh Dr Umar al-Qadri posted a video of the singer saying the Islamic declaration of faith.

Sinead Oconnor

In Light Of The Peaches Geldof Twitter Controversy, Here Are Some Celebrities Teaching Us How Not To Use Social Media

Despite her Twitter apology, Peaches Geldof is still in hot water for tweeting the names of two mothers, whose babies were involved in abuse by disgraced rock star Ian Watkins. The daughter of Bob Geldof apologized and explained that she had assumed the names were already public knowledge, however she is still under investigation, according to the Daily Mail. The concern was that her tweets could expose the two children, who were granted lifelong anonymity by a court order, after their mothers had allowed Watkins to abuse them.

Peaches apologised profusely for the comment, but these are some tweets that may come back to haunt her.

While information on the case mostly ends here (save for the few tweets by the socialite herself), this isn’t the first time that social media has gotten the better out of a celebrity. Luckily, most of the time some Twitter TMI is only likely to provide some fodder for the gossip websites, rather than have real-world consequences. So with that in mind, let’s lighten the mood a little at take a look at some of the most embarrassing celebrity tweets.

Inherently Sexist Music Industry V Charlotte Church - Can She Make A Difference?


Charlotte Church Miley Cyrus Annie Lennox Sinead Oconnor

Charlotte Church seems willing to take on one of the biggest businesses in the world as she denounces the "culture of demeaning women" in the contemporary music industry. The 27-year-old singer made her comments as she delivered the keynote speech for the John Peel Lecture.

Having suffered the very same fate she accuses the music industry of inflicting on young female artists, Church has emerged as a popular voice of reason in a spectrum clearly lacking reason and forethought.

Miley Cyrus’s increased sexualisation of herself, and inanimate objects like foam fingers and wrecking balls, has catalysed the concern regarding an underlying culture of sexism and exploitation.

Sinead O'Connor Threatening Legal Action Over Harassment From Miley Cyrus Fans


Miley Cyrus Sinead Oconnor

In the space of just a few days, the open letter that Sinead O’Connor sent to Miley Cyrus has turned into quite an intense feud. After O’Connor posted her original letter, urging Cyrus to essentially cover up, and not let herself be “prostituted” by the media industry, the younger musician responded by posting screencaps of O’Connor’s tweets from over a year ago, in which the singer sought help for a mental condition.

What began as a well-meaning letter has devolved into a full-on feud.

Naturally, O’Connor responded in a less-than-motherly tone to the attack, but now it seems like the 46-year-old singer misjudged the size and intensity of Miley’s audience. The fan reaction has prompted a fourth open letter from Sinead to Miley, listing the abuse, inflicted by Cyrus’s followers, according to People.
