Nikki Sixx Reacts To ‘Sensitive’ Pink Floyd Fans
You’re probably all familiar with the cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ with the iconic beam of light touching upon a prism and turning into a rainbow, since, you know, it’s been around for the last 50 years. So, many people were confused when some accused the cult band of being ‘woke’ for using a rainbow, and Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx had something to say about it on Twitter.
The iconic album is now celebrating its 50th anniversary, and to honor that, Pink Floyd announced that they would release a box set of ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ which will meet the fans in a few months. The band’s official Facebook page then changed their profile picture to celebrate both the release and the anniversary; however, they made one crucial mistake: the image had a rainbow.
Thus, some people are unhappy with the band’s usage of the rainbow, accusing them of being ‘woke’ and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Many have also flooded the comments under Pink Floyd’s new profile picture, saying they won’t buy the reissue because the band used a rainbow on their logo. So, it was only then that Nikki Sixx addressed the controversy with a tweet.
“People are too sensitive these days,” Sixx wrote upon seeing the news of people’s rants about the new profile picture of the band on their social media accounts and declaring that they wouldn’t pay anything for an album that includes anything related to rainbow.
So, it’s been quite, well… we don’t know what to say about this one. People love making things out of anything and find something to be mad about. The album is now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary on the market and is an iconic part of the rock scene; however, it seems like people have only just realized that there is a prism reflecting a rainbow on the cover.
People are too sensitive these days.
