Sinead O’Connor went there. And by “there,” I mean she took some serious umbrage with the latest Rolling Stone cover and dropped a hard c-word in a recent Facebook post regarding the cover and its subject, Kim Kardashian West.

“What is this c*nt doing on the cover of Rolling Stone ? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f*cking horrified. #BoycottRollingStone”

Okay, then. Let’s take a breath here and cool our jets. This is definitely not the first time Rolling Stone has put a non-musician on its cover, and it’s far from the most controversial subject to ever grace its cover. If anything is getting murdered here, it’s human decency, and Rolling Stone didn’t do the deed, you did. Even if it’s used a little more liberally in where you’re from in Ireland, calling someone the c-word is always a step too far in America. It doesn’t even matter who it’s directed to. And really, this is what has killed music? That seems like a stretch.
