Kim Kardashian has over 25 million fans on Facebook, but it’s safe to say that Sinead O’Connor is not one of them.
"What is this c--t doing on the cover of Rolling Stone?" O’Connor wrote on her Facebook page on Tuesday. "Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f--king horrified."
The Irish singer, best know to the Kardashian-loving generation as "that lady who tore up the picture of the Pope on SNL that one time," ended her post with an emphatic hashtag, “#BoycottRollingStone.”
Disregarding Kim’s fairly obvious connection to one of the biggest names in the music industry, husband Kanye West, O’Connor’s vitriol at the reality star's photo comes off as particularly tone-deaf considering that Rolling Stone frequently features non-musicians on the cover. TV and movie stars are frequent features, more politically-directed cover stories have featured President Barack Obama and, in a controversial editorial decision, Boston bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev.
Kim has yet to respond to O'Connor’s comments, but we’re guessing she might once again have to have someone explain to her who exactly is sending her hate. When Fox News host Megyn Kelly tried to slam Kardashian’s public image last month, the reality star responded with a brutally honest "I don’t know who that is."
"Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is entitled to that. I don't go around promoting anything," Kim continued. "I think people should be happy with who they are. If something makes them feel better about themselves, by all means, do whatever makes you happy."
