Dragon and unremitting self publicist on twitter (books, gyms, good works etc) @Duncanbannatyne (aka known as Duncan Genocide by Harry & Paul) has managed to piss off a lot of people on twitter by arguing with a young woman who offended him. The whole thing got out of hand…. just follow the #duncanbannatyne or similar to get the story.
Duncan Genocide has 182,000 followers – I am not one of them… in fact… I am BLOCKED from following him…. he doesn’t like me, obviously. Bovvered? Nope.
I am not going to cover it – because it is now @DavidAllenGreen story -*Genocide* was *HARD* on twitter..and tweeted this… to lawyer David Allen Green… not a terribly clever thing to do…. since David Allen Green is a rather sensible and good lawyer. (See tweet capture below)
This is the Duncan Bannatyne Tweet to lawyer David Allen Green…captured from the public timeline!
I do despair of celebrities who think they can own and manipulate twitter… fair enough pimping the odd book etc… but bullying is most unattractive. The original tweet complained of was clearly a joke. I did see it. Perhaps not a great joke… but anyone with even half a mind… would see it as a Dragon’s Den joke! Now the joke – in my opinion – is the Dragon…. and for that reason… *I’m OUT* and will never take Bannatyne seriously again unless he apologises to the original tweeter and twitter for his… to coin a phrase… *Ridiculous* behaviour.
Life is just too short…..
This is a personal opinion, sanctioned by English Law (and a raportage of events which are within my personal experience in terms of being blocked!), and is NOT a libel or any form of intrusion into the life of a heroic celebrity. I believe we are still allowed to express personal opinions in our green and pleasant land even if a Twitter Cleb doesn’t like it?
This is Duncan Genocide’s tweet to @sharongooner (who I think has been very ‘cool’ about the whole thing – and even deleted her tweet as she did not intend to offend. She made me smile when she tweeted… *going to the naughty step* – full marks to SG!)
