Prince William is a “Redneck,” Says Pink

  December 13, 2009 at 8:34 pm by

U.S. pop singer, Pink, is publicly badmouthing Britain’s Prince William for his stance on hunting animals. She recently told music bible, Q magazine, that she wrote the second in line to the throne a letter criticising him for the blood-sport.

To her surprise, William responded.

“I wrote to him to protest about fox hunting and I figured he would be this stuffy, privileged a**hole. But he’s like a red-neck from the south,” Pink said.

“If you’re brought up shooting and hunting animals, if you really think it’s second nature and you’re blasting away then it’s hard to see the other point of view. You need educating.”

The singer’s letter to the Prince was in response to his request that she perform for his 21st birthday back in 2003. Pink refused and instead wrote to William demanding to know why he hunts foxes.

It is not known when exactly Prince William finally responded to the singer or what he actually said.

Pink, who is a member of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), also wrote to William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, asking her to get rid of the bearskins worn by palace guards and replace them with fake fur, designed by Stella McCartney. The Queen has yet to answer Pink’s request.

“To be truthful I was really surprised I didn’t get a reply to that one. I wasn’t just writing in and complaining, and it certainly was not a publicity stunt,” said Pink.

“I actually proposed a plan. Stella McCartney had designed these replacement hats for the guards using fake fur. I felt we were solving the problem for her and offering a viable solution. But she never wrote back. Maybe she doesn’t have any of my stuff on her iPod.”

    I’m quite the fan of P!nk and have seen her perform the world over, recently in my hometowm of Melbourne and although I enjoy some of her music, I think perhaps she can greatly overestimate her influence.

    Because someone (or in this case an institution) doesn’t share your opinion, no matter the reason, does not then necessitate an insult. Bad form.

    If I were William I wouldn’t have bothered replying. It made no difference and she called him a ‘redneck’ in the end anyway.

    Short bleached hair, covered in tattoo’s and smokes weed like it’s going out of fashion. Somehow I think it’s clear who the redneck is ;)

    Yee Haa!

    It’s a complement actually. Redneck is misconstrued these days as an insult. A “redneck” in the original usage was a field hand who worked long hours in the sun, thus getting a red neck from sunburn. Over the years it’s been corrupted to mean lowclass, hatefull and bigoted. Any man or woman who works hard for a living may be in the low economic class, but that does not mean they are automatically “lowclass” in the sense implied. Nor does it mean they are hatefull or bigoted. Most “redneck” field hands from the south worked side by side with other races.

    I am fairly well traveled in the US, and in my opinion, for what it is worth, people in the south treat each other with more respect and there is less overt racism than most other areas. The northeast, midwest and California areas that I have experience use racial epithets and vulgarity almost constantly when I visit, making me, the southerner, feel uncomfortable.

    As for the hunting animals, to compare that to southerners is typical uninformed and shallow. Hunting is in all 50 states. Most of the best hunting areas are NOT in the south. So why didn’t Pink compare the prince to the other areas? Because the south is the last politically correct area of the country to denigrate. We know it, but cannot do anything about it except not do business with or by products from those who insult us. Freedom of association. Which would be a lot easier if people would quit moving to the south from all the other areas of the country even though they make fun of us down here…still haven’t figured that one out….make fun of us, but want to move here.

    I hope Prince William doesn’t pay a whit of notice to Pink. She’s over and he’s just beginning.
