Bono overtreedt Iers rookverbod

Samen met vrienden van de Californische groep The Red Hot Chilli Peppers stak Bono (U2) een sigaret op in een hotelrestaurant.

Hij denkt zich hiervoor te moet verexcuseren. Maar of dat terecht is?

U2 frontman Bono has apologised for having a cigarette with California rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers – even though it was in his own hotel.

Bono broke Ireland’s smoking ban in Dublin’s Clarence Hotel – which he co-owns with band members Larry Mullen Jr, Adam Clayton and the Edge.

He was spotted lighting up with the Chilis during a late-night bash in the plush Tea Room restaurant.

He said: “It was the wee small hours. I was in the company of people from out of town who didn’t know about the ban and for a moment nor did I.”

“I was quickly reminded by the staff and a few friends. I apologised then and I apologise now.”

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
