In case you haven't heard, Bob Geldof has caused a bit of a stir with his comments about Primark.
While performing with The Boomtown Rats at a rock festival in Brentwood, Essex, the 'Band Aid' singer passed comment on the clothing of fans in the crowd. He said,
I, for one, am wearing a f*ck off pretend snakeskin suit [...] On the other hand Brentwood, you are wearing wall to wall f*cking Primark. This is a rock and roll festival. When you come to a rock and roll festival, dress for a rock and roll festival.
You can see the singer's tirade in full below.

Needless to say, people were not happy with these comments.
Bob Geldof swearing and going mental at Brentwood festival was so inappropriate ???? telling the crowd off for wearing Primark ????

Bragging about your hand made snakeskin suit and condemning your audience for their peasant clothing is outrageously funny #BobGeldof
