British rapper Stormzy is taking aim at William Shakespeare, claiming that the iconic playwright is a “bad influence” on children.
The comments came after North London headteacher Katharine Birbalsingh claimed that Stormzy’s music is “promoting black self-hatred.” He was triggered by her remarks, and launched into a tirade against Shakespeare as a result.
He said: “You say, ‘Let’s learn about Shakespeare’ but Shakespeare has stories of bloodbath and murder. I always say, ‘I am as positive as Shakespeare, I’m as negative as Shakespeare’”
Stormzy went through Shakespeare plays to talk about their graphic themes, suggesting that they may be inappropriate for children to read.
He continued: “Romeo And Juliet, bruv, they poisoned . . . I don’t know what criminal act that falls under but that’s not righteous, like poisoning and rivalries, houses . . .”
“I might not want my kid to know about Macbeth and all the bloodbaths and the darkness of it,” Stormzy added.
Earlier this month, Stormzy topped the UK charts with his record “Heavy Is The Head” and his song “Own It,” starting the new decade on top:
Stormzy continues to dominate the UK charts – as he has simultaneously achieved the number one spot on both the official singles and album chart for this week.
The rapper’s second studio album Heavy Is The Head has hit the top spot on the album chart, after previously peaking at number two upon its release last month, while his single Own It, a collaboration with Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy, holds on for a second week at the top of the singles chart, after it had previously become the first number one single of both 2020 and the new decade.
Heavy Is The Head is Stormzy’s second number one album, after his debut record, Gang Signs And Prayers, also hit the top spot upon its release in 2017.
Stormzy previously revealed that he was ‘grateful’ to his fans and collaborators for achieving his third UK number one single with Own It, after his songs Vossi Bop and Take Me Back To London (also featuring Ed Sheeran) both topped the charts last year.
‘When we shoot, we score! Big up Ed and Burna Boy,’ he exclaimed in a video interview with OfficialCharts.com.
‘Honestly, I’m so grateful. Anyone who listens to me, supports, buys my music, streams my music or comes to my shows, you lot have changed my life. Words aren’t enough, but thank you.’
Stormzy’s popularity cannot be denied, but it may be more evidence that civilization is sinking into idiocracy.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship
They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.
At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.
Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.
Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.
The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.
At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.
There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
