Elton John, whose life is portrayed in this weekend’s film Rocketman, slammed Brexit during a concert in Verona, Italy on Thursday.
Said Elton: “I really believe that we need more love and compassion in the world today. A lot more. … I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot. I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart. So I want more love in the world.”
