John Mayer slams 'Huffington Post' over Jennifer Aniston story: 'Go f--- yourself'
John Mayer has published a tirade against the Huffington Post in response to an article which theorized that he is once again dating Jennifer Aniston. In a post on Tumblr, the singer-guitarist compared Arianna Huffington’s site to “a stripper wearing reading glasses.” He also suggested a title for any piece the Huffington Post might run on his response: JOHN MAYER SLAMS HUFFPO: “GO F**K YOURSELF!”
Mayer’s ire was provoked by an item which appeared on the Huffington Post this lunchtime under the headline, “John Mayer & Jennifer Aniston BACK TOGETHER?” The piece described how Mayer said that he “believed in second chances” during his Hollywood Bowl concert on Sunday. The article also noted that “a woman who resembled Aniston was rumored to be in the wings,” during the show.
In his response, Mayer took issue with the manner in which the Huffington Post depicted his quotes and additionally compared the site to “an insolvent law student willing to dance for a few extra dollars.” He then offered up the aforementioned headline suggestion, “should you decide to try and make a few more bucks for whatever body wash or slasher flick you’re hocking today.”
Frankly, I’m outraged about Mayer’s missive: There’s nothing wrong with advertising slasher flicks! I offer no comment on the rest of his words, other than to observe they’re pretty entertaining and deserve to be read in full.
What do you think about Mayer’s letter? Is he right to be outraged? Or has he just lost it?
