U2 surprise some ‘fans’ by getting political after they announce support for repealing the 8th amendment

They appear to have missed every other political stand the band have ever taken.

U2  announced their support for the campaign to repeal the 8th amendment last night and some ‘fans’ were shocked at that the famously political band would weigh in on a political issue…

They took to Twitter to endorse a Yes vote in the referendum on May 25th.

Posting an image of Maser’s logo, which was removed from the Project Arts Centre twice and reads “Repeal the 8th”, they captioned the tweet, “Vote on May 25th”.

Amusingly some fans seemed taken aback that the band would make political statements.

U2 are arguably one of the most political bands of all time with Bono recently weighing in on the #MeToo movement nevermind decades of humanitarian work in Africa with Live Aid among other work.

Other fans were quick to clapback that it’d be weirder for U2 not to have their say.

However, the majority of their fans were delighted with the public show of support and lauded the band for supporting the repeal campaign ahead of the referendum later this month.

Pippa O’Connor, James and John Kavanagh have also spoken out in favour of the repeal campaign in the past few days.
