Fucked Up versus Fox News
Possibly the weirdest punk-related news of last week was this:
Toronto’s Fucked Up lead vocalist Pink Eyes – aka Damian Abraham – has been asked to appear more regularly on Fox New‘s Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld. Abraham will be playing the role of a general leftist pundit, after declining to be a “gender expert.”
Abraham previously made two appearances on the show after Gutfeld stated on air that The Chemistry of Common Life was his favourite album of 2008. Gutfeld also gained some infamy for mocking the Canadian military but later apologized.
It’s not yet a contractually agreed relationship – more of an informal agreement – but it could become the first compelling reason to watch Fox News. Once or twice a month, for five minutes. More here and here.
