The Killers Turn Grammy Nomination Snub Into Donald Trump-Trolling Gold
Rock band The Killers responded to being snubbed for Grammy Awards nominations with a tweet that mocked President Donald Trump’s failing attempts to steal the 2020 election.
After missing out on a nomination for sixth studio album “Imploding the Mirage,” the group on Tuesday channeled the president’s false conspiracy theories about mass voter fraud with this all-caps tweet:
“OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTING ROOMS,” the group wrote. “WE WON THE GRAMMYS, GOT LOADS OF LEGAL VOTES.
“BAD THINGS HAPPENED WHICH OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE,” the band added. “DOZENS OF BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!”
The tweet went down well with fans:
It’s not the first time the Brandon Flowers-fronted group has used its platform to call out the Trump era.
In January 2019, The Killers released protest song “Land of the Free” that riffed on the themes of institutional racism, immigration and Trump’s much-promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
