Boy George Being Targeted By Mexicans + Bad Makeup Artists

Just when you finally got ‘Karma Chameleon’ out of your head, Boy George is back in the headlines. And oddly enough, the erstwhile Culture Club frontman is under a whole lot of attack from Mexicans over a misunderstood tweet.

TMZ reports that Boy George, nee George O’Dowd, tweeted about the Mexican presidential election, and his message was pretty innocuous and adorable, writing, “Mexico has a hot new president and I hope he is good for the country!”

No harm there, right? (Other than sounding like Paris Hilton.)

Problem is, a lot of Mexican news outlets saw the post and mistranslated it, twisting his sweet, if shallow, words into something much more sinister.

Somehow, George’s well wishes turned into this: “So the Mexican president is a tyrant. Well, if that’s true Mexico needs good wishes.”

As a result, poor George has been bombarded with angry tweets and messages from Mexican residents who think their president is just fine, thank you. He’s resorted to blocking anyone who calls him racist, because, well, in this case, he’s not.

Maybe they’ll feel better if he lists “brown” along with “red, gold and green” as one of those colors in his dream.
