Honestly U2 have become excruciating and the advent of the internet has made them more so. That's why people dislike the bloke. It's not hard to work out!
I must agree, people have always took the pi*s out of U2. Viz magazine in the U.K. have done it for decades. However since around 2000 It's got worse. Things like applying for the job of the biggest rock band on the planet, moving their taxes, iTunes incident, Blair/Bush scmoozing, Save the World/Africa events haven't done them any favours.
I cringe anytime I see a U2/Bono related article on Facebook. I know the comments will be filled with negativity.
It's cool as hell to hate U2. No matter how hard they try, most people think Bono is a c***, even a lot of the fans. That will never change.
It's sad but it's true.
