Rock musician Sean Lennon, the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, is slamming the news media for its coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, saying that they are spreading Chinese Communist propaganda and engaging in double standards.
Sean Lennon took to Twitter Wednesday to air his frustration with the way journalists are reporting on the global outbreak, especially when it comes to China.
Sean Ono Lennon @seanonolennon
Been listening to respectable journalists quoting CCP official numbers for months without doubt or hesitation. Calling it the Wuhan Virus but only days later telling ppl who say its from China theyre racist. The official media have lost their legitimacy.
@seanonolennon We live in a time that calling a virus that came from China, Chinese, is racist, (and arguably dangerous for Asians because: morons). Oh, and calling a virus that probably didnt come from Spain, Spanish, well that makes total sense.

Good for him
“There’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time.”
When have I ever heard a song from him?
I did hear a song from his half-brother Julian back in 1984...
Does anybody remember Valotte?
His mother ruined his solo career, but he went and found the bassist from Primus and they actually do jam rock albums that sellout and sell.
Good to know. Nothing against Sean but don’t remember any songs from him. Now I’ll have to check it out.
Wow... I really do live in upsidedown world!
Just Gimme Some Truth!!
Didn’t he make a comment a while back that was “based”? I forgot.
Anyhow....good on ‘im.
This is so much better than Breitbart keeping us up to date on the thoughts of Cher and Meathead.
They are called Claypool Lennon Delerium. They are obviously a college jam band like “Phish”. There are loads of youtube vids.
His pre career was Yoko dumping money into music noone related to. At least with Delerium he has Les Claypool to help him connect with the audience.
He’s a red-pill candidate. A lot of his tweets have had this kind of flavor.
The old man was a complicated sort too, despite everyone thinking he was just another cookie-cutter left-wing musician.
oh wow this is VERY shocking.
Sean was raised by two of the biggest leftists around.
Yes I agree.
Glad to see he’s come down on the right side on this.
Sounds level headed here.
Hang on! Does this mean that he’s actually figured this out and has the guts to make it known? Amazing!
I do. I was 23 and in grad school at Villanova at the time, and I saw pictures of Julian and was knocked out at the resemblance to his dad. He sounded like John too.
These lines from "Valotte" resonate encouragingly with me in light of the Covid crisis...
"When will we know when the change is gonna come
I've got a good feeling and it's coming from the sun"
"Do you know there's something wrong
We'll stick together 'cause we're strong"
His father also had some wacky political opinions, but every so often, he’d come out with something so clearheaded and blunt that it shocked the hippies. Recall how he told Chairman Mao and all the deluded commies to shove it in “Revolution.”
