Right Said Fred ‘thanked’ people for wearing a mask – 13 too sexy takedowns
When the ‘Freedom Day’ concert is announced then presumably Right Said Fred will be on the must-see bill, along with Ian Brown, Van Morrison and Laurence Fox as the headline act, obviously.
We only mention this because Right Said Fred have been covidioting again on Twitter when they said this.
And it prompted all sorts of satisfying takedowns. Here are
Right said Fred accusing others of being “surplus to requirements”. The irony.

Excuse me whilst I get my sewing machine out to construct a coat of many masks just to be absolutely sure. https://t.co/OOhHHZMYrx

Wow what a tweet. I wear a mask to protect myself and those around me including my kids. How selfish that I also wish to protect my colleagues and customers also. I see being anti mask is the only way to be relevant after more than 20 years of dining out on 1 song.

I have great faith in large numbers of people continuing to wear masks in indoor situations. The issue is that the people who don’t wear masks are more likely to be the biohazards who think vaccines make you magnetic, and go around licking Right Said Fred.

Masks are essential any time there’s a crowd of more than 5-6 people so I can certainly see why they might not be essential for a Right Said Fred concert

This adds another layer of complexity to my mask decision. Yes it might be socially responsible to wear a mask in a a crowded space. But on the other hand what if the person next to me is Right Said Fred and he was about to ask me to work with him, but then doesn’t? https://t.co/B6H9jjlOX9

Which side are you on? The side of just about every single respected scientist, or the side of Right Said Fred, Laurence Fox and Richard Madeley?#WearAMask

And 'Right Said Fred' both say they would not.
That's the debate. https://t.co/HGkhqkzeUG

Or, if you prefer it short and sweet, there was this, from the Waterboys’ Mike Scott.
