1980s singer Sinead O'Connor is making news again - this time for making hate filled comments about White people. Sinead recently converted to Islam.
In case you're wondering Sinead is White. She was born in Ireland, and lived almost all her life as.a Roman Catholic. She recently converted to Islam, after a battling with mental health issues.
Here are the tweets:
In a series of bizarre tweets, the Nothing Compares 2U singer wrote:
‘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).
'Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting.’
The majority of those replying to Sinead’s tweet – many of them Muslims themselves – called her out on the post.
One person wrote:
‘Good and bad people are everywhere be it any cast or creed or religion’, while another replied: ‘No one’s ethnicity makes them disgusting, no matter which individuals you’ve encountered.’
And another reply read:
‘My sis this is just a handful of ppl who’ve treated you this way. Not all non-Muslims will mistreat you. Just as not all Muslims will treat you well. As a revert myself (over 22 years), I have experienced prejudice from Muslims who have very narrow minded views about reverts.’
The Irish singer continued:
‘Interesting to see if Twitter bans this when it allows people like Trump spew the satanic filth upon even my country.
