So Muslim sects aren't cool enough for Mr Hucknall to list..

Sunni's too Shiite to mention?

And not a fan of gay culture either, is he?

Holding back the queers.

A lot of people criticising Mick here; he could've gone the easy route - top 5 albums, top 5 films, top 5 people with the same colour hair as me, etc but no.  Quarantine not easy for some.

Cool Mick here, assembling a cool Ark in these Covid times so that the cool can survive.  It's perfectly reasonable behaviour and there is no doubt in anyone's mind that Mick Hucknall should be the self-appointed gatekeeper.

Simply Red CDs were purchased by unpleasant couples who wanted to get into property development to get ahead of the shitmunchers.

A foetid man.  We instinctively know he doesn't floss his molars or wash between his toes.  Dead in a skip by Christmas.

Tbf, I’m pretty sure that attributing characteristics or qualities to a race is the dictionary definition of racism.  Can’t really blame the twitter hive mind if they’ve levelled accusations of racism.

Well, pretending for a second any of the concern is in any way serious (which it isn't, like most things on Twitter) he didn't say races had intrinsic attributes - therefore it's safe/charitable to assume he means that, on our particular time-line, this is just the way things have panned out. I imagine if you wanted to hustle him into a full explanation, he'd start talking about social conditions, how working conditions (he's already mentioned the working class) play in to it rather than some sort of speculative 'cool gene'.

The point is moot anyway since, like all of us, he listens to music from a very small handful of Ethnic-national groupings. All he's done is rate them in order, and some very silly people have decided to take offense because they're bored and have nothing better to do.

I hear you're a racist now, Mick? How did you get interested in that type of thing?

He doesn’t seem to understand what ‘working class’ means, in all honesty.

Even though it IS racist by definition, I struggle to be offended by it.  Comes over as tone-deaf & Patridge-esque (and you’d think he’d know, having been in a mock-up of Alan’s former residence) rather than an attempt to be the new Katie Hopkins.  ‘Celebrity says something fucking stupid on twitter’ is run-of-the-mill stuff.  I think it makes him look like an idiot, but there’s little point pouring bile on him.  After all, he’s given us the gift of Simply Red’s contribution to popular culture.

Obviously, that's the real crime here, but I like to think of this in a similar way to how they got Al Capone for tax evasion.

I don't think Mick's ever been the same since that girl charged with spinning the straw into gold guessed his name and so didn't have to give him her first-born.

I don't think anyone is actually offended are they? They are just saying he is a bit of a rodney plonker
