Echo and the Bunnymen Under Attack on Facebook
Everytime an artist agrees to play in israel, a coordinated attack is unleashed. Letters and emails are sent to the artist and his/her manager. Faxes are sent. And their facebook page is swamped.
Echo and the Bunnymen are currently in the crosshairs. They follow in the footsteps of the Buzzcocks, macy Grey, Jethro Tull, and so many others. Their facebook page is filled with politics and polemics.
But there is also fraud. Check out the screen shot above. "Nick libya"( yeah right) has actually threatened to take out a fake Twitter account in the name of Echo and the Bunnymen, to "have some fun".
What I've learned from participation in these squirmishes before- the haters will stop at nothing to get their way.
