During a recent interview with Britain’s Times, the outspoken U.K.-born punk rocker said that cancel culture is a blight upon humanity.
He also said that college and university students were at least partially to blame for the ultra-woke, politically correct movement surrounding cancel culture.
“These people aren’t really genuinely disenfranchised at all,” the 65-year-old performer said. “They just view themselves as special. It’s selfishness and in that respect, it’s divisive and can only lead to trouble.”
Of the media, Lydon added, “I can’t believe that TV stations give some of these lunatics the space.”
“Where is this ‘moral majority’ nonsense coming from when they’re basically the ones doing all the wrong for being so bloody judgmental and vicious against anybody that doesn’t go with the current popular opinion?” he continued. “It’s just horribly, horribly tempestuous spoilt children coming out of colleges and universities with s**t for brains.”
