In surprising feedback on social media, singer Sinead O’Connor has claimed she “doesn’t need to spend time with white folks once more”.
The Nothing Compares 2 U hitmaker – who just lately transformed to Islam and altered her identify to Shuhada’, which implies ‘martyrs’ in Arabic – has mentioned she is ‘disgusted’ by individuals who don’t comply with her new religion.
Sinead posted the remark, which she herself described as ‘so racist’, on Twitter on Tuesday.
“I’m terribly sorry. What I’m about to say is one thing so racist I by no means thought my soul may ever really feel it,” she wrote.
“However really I by no means wanna spend time with white folks once more (if that’s what non-muslims are known as). Not for one second, for any motive. They’re disgusting.”
The 51-year-old – whose full identify is now Shuhada’ Davitt – then questioned Twitter’s coverage about blocking hateful content material, as she puzzled whether or not or not her account could be deleted.
“Fascinating to see if Twitter bans this when it permits folks like Trump and Milbank spew the satanic filth upon even my nation,” she wrote.
Sinead took to social media final month to announce her change of religion, and mentioned the conversion was the ‘pure conclusion of any clever theologian’s journey’.
“That is to announce that I’m proud to have turn out to be a Muslim,” she wrote on the time. “That is the pure conclusion of any clever theologian’s journey. All scripture research results in Islam. Which makes all different scriptures redundant. I can be given (one other) new identify. It is going to be Shuhada’
“Thanks a lot to all my Muslim brothers and sisters who’ve been so form as to welcome me to Ummah at this time on this web page. You possibly can’t start to think about how a lot your tenderness means to me.”
It’s not the primary time the singer has modified her identify.
