More About That Asshole Bono

From the Chicago Tribune:

Three years ago, while preparing to perform with Luciano Pavarotti in Modena, the rocker discovered that he had left his black trilby [hat] behind in London. Panic-stricken, Bono paid $1,500 to have it flown out to Italy.

Although the hat was given its own first class seat, the flight crew became concerned that it might get squashed, and moved it into the cockpit, where it traveled alongside the captain. On arrival it was collected by a driver, and delivered to Bono shortly before the concert.

Dude all I'm saying is that $1,500 could feed alot of starving children or dig some wells in Africa. Bono is a fucking idiot.

Fuck him. This is just the type of asshole behavior that makes me hate him and most other outspoken charity type celebs.

Speaking of asshole celebrities and africa.

I was fuming, when the whole Darfur psychosis started, because, you know, there were at least two wars in africa no one cared about. One was the second civil war in Sudan, before Darfur, which went through the entire 90ies (1991-2001), with estimated 2.2 million deaths. The other one was in Congo, the Second Congo War (1998-2003), with the estimated death toll of 3.8 million people. Please reread the numbers and dates above. (Wikipedia has some info on Second_Congo_War and Second_Sudanese_Civil_War)

There was absolutely no media coverage (except, maybe, for specialized european news feeds for grown men, i don't know.) probably because there's no Hilton in Congo for all those media types and celebrities to stay at. Or maybe because it's blacks killing blacks (Congo war had nine african nations involved).

So now you have celebrities pretending like they care, and maybe they do, but they are so fucked up in the head, they probably feel the same emotions, when their pet labradoodle dies, or when they forget their hat at some hotel in London.

Fuck celebrities. It used to be, that actors were on the same scale as prostitutes, but now they are everyones' best friends.

No don't apologize! You are so right, I wish more people took time out of their days to learn a little bit about the world around them. It's ashame that there were more people who camped outside Best Buy to get the new Play Station, then voted in the last election.
