Boy George gets into “hot Mexican” mess

Boy George

George simply wished the country good luck, his spokesperson said.

Earlier this week, punk icon, Boy George, posted a tweet about Mexico‘s new president saying, “Mexico has a hot new president and I hope he is good for the country!”

Several Mexican news outlets while reporting on the tweet translated it to mean, “So the Mexican President is a tyrant. Well, if that’s true, Mexico needs good wishes.”

The former front man of Culture Club soon started to receive negative tweets from “mostly Mexicans” some of whom called him racist. He then tweeted on Tuesday that he had been “blocking anyone who annoys me by calling me ‘racist’ or mentioning ‘presidents!”

The star’s representative, speaking to celebrity news website TMZ, called the situation “ridiculous.”

“George has no political motivation or even knows anything about the candidates involved or their history, it was simply a good luck to the whole country,” he added.
