Sinead wants to shun white peo­ple

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - HTCITY ENTERTAINMENT -

Singer-song­writer Sinead O’con­nor, who has con­verted to Is­lam, has said in a “racist” Twit­ter rant that she has no in­ter­est in as­so­ci­at­ing with white peo­ple any­more.

Ac­cord­ing to hol­ly­wood re­porter.com, the Ir­ish singer, who now goes by the name Shuhada Davitt, tweeted: “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 non­mus­lims are called). Not for one mo­ment, for any rea­son. They are dis­gust­ing,” she fur­ther tweeted.

In a fol­low-up tweet, the 51-year-old blasted Twit­ter for cen­sor­ship.

“In­ter­est­ing to see if Twit­ter bans this when it al­lows peo­ple like Trump and Mil­bank spew the satanic filth upon even my coun­try.”

O’con­nor ripped up a photo of Pope John Paul II dur­ing a Sat­ur­day Night Live show in 1992.

She said that holy books like the Bible were “ir­rel­e­vant” in to­day’s age.
