When did celebrities become so crass? British Pop Star Robbie Williams gives World Cup audience middle finger in same week De Niro says F–K Trump
When did celebrities become so crass? One would have considered it an honor years ago to perform at the opening ceremonies of the World Cup. But British Pop Star Robbie Williams gave the camera the middle finger while performing. What is that all about? Does he know hundreds of millions of people so well that he wants to say FU to all of them?
This happens in the same week that American actor Robert De Niro stood on stage and said “F–k Trump. It’s no longer ‘down with Trump,’ it’s ‘fuck Trump,'” Robert De Niro told the audience. A few weeks ago Samantha Bee and it’s a real stretch to call her a celebrity called Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” for having the audacity to have a picture taken holding her child while illegals children are being separated from their families.
Now British pop star Robbie Williams has stuck his middle finger at the camera while performing on the field before the opening game of the World Cup. The gesture was produced while Williams was singing “Rock DJ” at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. Russia is playing Saudi Arabia in the opening game of the tournament. The game is being shown live to an expected global television audience of hundreds of millions, including on Fox in the United States.
When did celebrities become so crass? Maybe the British pop star took his clues from Madonna, Miley Cyrus grabbing their crotch on stage. In 1957 Elvis Presley who was 100 times the star of Robbie Williams or Miley Cyrus was censored and show only above the waist on the Ed Sullivan show. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were also censored for offensive lyrics on The Ed Sullivan show. How did we go from not showing a rock star twisting his hips to vile and disgusting nobodies giving the finger to millions at the World Cup?
