The Enemy's Tom Clarke Lashes Out After Journalist Calls Him A Hobbit
The Enemy frontman takes to Twitter to vent his frustration at journalist.
The outburst was the result of an unfavourable review in Time Out referring to the band as "subtlety-deficient indie gnomes".
Time Out, who were writing about the Coventry band's upcoming tour, went on to say "can someone put a bullet in indie's head already? Welcome back? God no."
Clarke then took to Twitter to let his opinion of the review be known - see the tweets below (LANGUAGE WARNING!).
If I had a pound for everytime a journalist called me a hobbit I could buy enough bullets to round them up and disfigure the lot of them.— Tom Clarke (@tomclarke_enemy) September 9, 2014
Absolute fucking children. What they fail to appreciate is that I've achieved more than they ever will despite being a fucking hobbit.— Tom Clarke (@tomclarke_enemy) September 9, 2014
Morons. Jealous, juvenile, inept, generically conformist morons. With your little pens. Do me a favour and get yourself a life transplant.— Tom Clarke (@tomclarke_enemy) September 9, 2014
It's 2014 and we're still obsessed with what people look like instead of who they are or what they do. Society needs to grow the fuck up.— Tom Clarke (@tomclarke_enemy) September 9, 2014
We can learn from this not to call Tom names, he does not take it well.
The Enemy will be touring the UK in December with support from The Twang.
