Never one to shy away from controversy, Sinead O’Connor has stated that Donald Trump’s mother should have aborted him.
The singer made the comments about the US Presidential candidate today, following his offensive suggestion that women who have abortions should be punished if the practice were illegal. He has since retracted his statement.
Taking to her Facebook page, the Nothing Compares 2U singer slammed the billionaire in a ranting post. “Trump’s mother should be punished for NOT having an abortion if you want my two cents,” she wrote.
Sinead is clearly not a fan of Trump, previously posting on her profile a series of insults, including: “I can’t stand Trump going on about “We will make America great again”. It’s already great. F*ck off.”
Another Irish celebrity who isn’t a supporter is Roz Purcell, who signed up to his modelling agency in New York after coming seventh place in the Miss Universe pageant back in 2010.
She previously said about her former boss: “It’s so strange that people take him seriously, like you’d wonder if he’s just putting it on or if he really believes it.
“Last week he said he doesn’t believe in global warming – it’s mad. And for someone in such a powerful position, it’s scary because people in America will listen to him.”
