Los Angeles, May 8 (IANS) The Beatles legend John Lennon was a “bad guy”, says National Football League star Chris Long.
Long was responding to a Twitter challenge where he was supposed to state a “controversial yet unproblematic opinion”, reports tmz.com.
“John Lennon was a bad guy,” Long wrote.
“John Lennon was a bad guy and if this makes you mad unfollow me,” he added.
Asked why he felt this way, Long responded: “It’s easier for me because I don’t care for the Beatles. I don’t feel a need to cape for an abuser.”
Long was referring to Lennon’s admission that he physically abused women — a topic he touched upon during a 1980 Playboy interview.
In fact, his first wife, Cynthia, wrote a book and said Lennon once slapped her on the face.
