Boy George Faces Criticism From LGBTQ Community After Saying Use Of Pronouns Is Just 'Attention Seeking'
Boy George's PR team has been burning the candle at both ends after he recently dubbed the use of pronouns nothing more than "a modern form of attention seeking."
The Culture Club leader, pretty much of out of nowhere, is now getting a lot of attention again for all the wrong reasons.
It all started completely unwarranted.
Like a lightning bolt out of a clear sky, George got the pot stirring with this tweet,
Leave your pronoun's at the door!— Boy George (@Boy George)1578321706.0
Naturally, this equally confusing and fiery tweet aroused some responses.
One, since deleted, asked if the singer did, in fact, know what he was talking about.
To this, he responded with the Tweet primarily responsible for him being dragged online.
I cannot get inside the head of Boy George, but there seemed to be a taste for controversy in him on that particular day.
People instantly derided George for the comment in a slew of different ways.

A few users even got a direct response from George.
Spoiler: he did not apologize or respond diplomatically.

And many others, clearly angered, took this opportunity to remind everyone that George is no stranger to controversy.
Back in 2008, he was convicted for handcuffing a male model and beating them.
@BoyGeorge Remember when you imprisoned and assaulted a model?— UwU 🚑 uwu 🚑 UwU 🚑 uwu (@UwU 🚑 uwu 🚑 UwU 🚑 uwu)1578502235.0
@BoyGeorge Well it's better than assault and false imprisonment as a form of attention seeking.— Ann Coates (@Ann Coates)1578476837.0
Whether George sees the error of his ways or not is still unclear. But accusing people, transgender or cisgender, asking to have people recognize their gender identities and not just make one up for them based on what they see of being attention seeking is looking a bit like...
