Rolling Stones followers had been shocked when the band introduced final week that they had been dropping certainly one of their largest hits, Brown Sugar, from their world tour.
Now, I can disclose extraordinary particulars of how an organised group of woke activists systematically focused lots of of 1000’s of devotees around the globe by infiltrating their on-line fan membership.
The group of campaigners posed as hardcore Stones superfans to get entry to the net subscription fan membership IORR (named after their track It is Solely Rock ‘n’ Roll) earlier than relentlessly hammering followers and dialogue threads with indignant political trolling posts slamming the track’s reference to slavery.

The aggressive assault on the 40-year-old membership brought about such a wave of hysteria among the many fanbase and administration that the band members felt compelled to make an announcement that the monitor would now not be carried out.
Guitarist Keith Richards, 77, appeared completely dumbfounded by the sudden and apparently inexplicable stage of hatred for the No 2 hit, which he defended, insisting the lyrics had been a condemnation of the slave commerce.
Requested why they’d not performed it on their present tour, he mentioned: ‘You picked up on that, huh? I do not know. I am making an attempt to determine with the sisters fairly the place the meat is.’
‘Sisters’ seems to be a reference to the organised group of feminine activists who’ve aggressively focused unsuspected followers over latest weeks, based on IORR founder and Norwegian Stones superfan Bjornulf Vik.

He has now been pressured to close down the fan membership’s subscription service and has began a widescale cull of latest members to attempt to kick out woke activist interlopers.
Vik had warned rogue activist subscribers trolling followers on his website that indignant political posts about Brown Sugar wouldn’t be accepted.
The band made the announcement in regards to the monitor being banished 4 days later.
Vik mentioned: ‘IORR has been spammed by political posts associated to Brown Sugar these days.
‘Like many different issues, some folks do make this a extremely political dialogue. It looks like it’s inconceivable for some to debate Brown Sugar with out getting extremely political and offensive.’
