Stuart MacLennan - The MacLennan Syndromeby HUMERUS - Media Epicondyle
ABOUT THE ART
Stuart MacLennan was suspended as a Labour member after admitting tweeting offensive comments. Labour initially backed him to remain as a candidate, but later dropped him after opposition calls for him to go. MacLennan said he was sorry and admitted he had been "very stupid". He reportedly described the elderly as "coffin dodgers" on his Twitter page and posted a series of foul-mouthed rants about politicians. He had also labelled the commons speaker John Bercow a "tit", David Cameron a "twat" and Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader, "a bastard". Nor was his ire limited to the political world. The Sun reported that Mr MacLennan called the X Factor judge Louis Walsh a "cunt", referred to Jedward as "odious little shits" and wrote: "I fucking hate Paolo Nutini". MacLennan apologised for his "very silly" behaviour and admitted he had let himself down. "Some of the things i twitted before i become a candidate were very, very silly and i can see they are offensive," he said. "I have let myself and my friends down and i am really sorry."
