Why Sinéad O'Connor never wants to 'spend time with white people again'

CELEBRITY sinead o'connor

If you haven't been keeping up with the 'Nothing Compares 2 U' singer as of late, there's a lot going on in her life. Sinéad O'Connor has converted to Islam, and she's changed her name to Shuhada' Davitt (to free herself of parental curses, apparently). But, what makes her new religious path even more of a head-scratcher than Lindsay Lohan's is that she's decided, as a white person, to never spend time with white people again. 

"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 non-muslims are called)," she tweeted, severely missing the mark on her guess at what non-muslims are called. She continued, "Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting."

The 51-year-old has had her fair share of disputes in the past, but this "racist" remark kicked off a fresh wave of bizarre drama. 

The singer criticized Twitter’s policy on blocking hate speech, particularly in letting "people like Trump and Milbank spew the satanic filth upon even my country," though she later tried her own hand at filth by writing, "White people b******g... It’s so boring. Yawn."

She also criticized martyrs, the role of violence in religion, and, of course, white men. One of her most puzzling and graphic tweets says, "How come so called christian and jewish theologians ( the christian theologians being atheists and satanists actually in practice, though they know it not, never talk about the smashing of their enemies babies heads on rocks which in all over their psalms?"

And, as if you needed another reason to be deeply concerned, O'Connor's closing remark was just as nonsensical.

But, of course, that wasn't the final word. She later tweeted a video of herself whispering creepily about why she came back to Twitter—to annoy white supremacists—and explaining her recent sentiments. 

She said she doesn't actually hate white people, and that she was just seeing if Twitter would close her account, since the social media site had previously closed her account for saying that she didn't like nuns murdering babies. Her hopes of having her account closed, however, fell through.

At the end, she added, "This is a message for all the white supremacists who are all over my page: clearly none of you can read—you don't spell very well either, by the way. Up at the top of my page you'll see it says, 'I don't read replies,' so there's no point f*****g writing them, idiots."

Are we willing to let it slide that O'Connor had to have been reading them to know they have poor spelling?
