I get that but is it really necessary to have that scene at all in a music video or any other online form of media? Given how often terrorist attacks happen and their impact they have they really didn’t need to have it in the video at all and it’s resulted in negative connotations being drawn from it as a result.

Well that's a question for them

But it's real life, and it will always be depicted in media - and it always has been. Sid Vicious' 1978 video for 'My Way' features him mass shooting the audience after his performance.

This is a question of censorship in a free society.

Obviously people will have their own view on this - but it's a music video, it's art - no different to a film. It’s not set in Manchester nor has it got any relation to Manchester whatsoever.

Hopefully they do another video where he talks in depth about what the video means - but it took it to mean how bombings are going on, but action isn't being taken and they're just being talked about on social media, hence him exploding into emojis.


Yeah I agree with this. It's cringeworthy edginess much like the song itself but I don't think it's offensive, it's just their attempt at artistic social/political commentary.
