In the latest blow that the year 2016 has dealt the human race, convicted paedophile Ian Watkins has apparently reappeared to tease new music.
Yep, it turns out even convicted baby rapists are able to access social media from their prison cells in the UK — oh, and recording equipment? — because rather than being shut away behind bars where society doesn’t have to be plagued by the gross reminder of his existence, the ex-Lostprophets frontman seems to have been allowed to reboot his Twitter account and use it to spruik new recordings.
Once again, this is Ian Watkins we’re talking about. You know, the guy who’s currently serving a 35-year jail sentence for a string of horrific child sex crimes including attempting to rape an infant and planning to rape another one.
Unless his Twitter account has been hacked by some twisted individual with far too much time on their hands (and TBH we kinda hope it has been), then this is some absolute bullshit right here.
Forget the fact that we’re being forced to talk about Watkins again after all the truly messed up shit that he’s done, but also the fact that the powers that be are letting him loose on social media — the very platform he used to groom the mothers of the infants that he abused in the first place — that is just 20 million light years beyond the Planet Fucked.
Fuck you, 2016. Fuck you.
