Sunday’s “Day of Rage” against Columbus Day in Portland, Oregon has received some criticism from John Lennon’s son, Sean Ono Lennon. “Can someone explain why it appears a Lincoln statue was toppled in Portland,” Lennon writes in a tweet on Monday. “Asking for a friend.”

He also adds, “Since the invasion of Britain by the Emperor Julius Caesar in 55 B.C., Italy has remained deafeningly silent. I think it’s time Italy was held accountable.”

The vandalism that transpired in Portland is a result of the racial injustice protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death earlier this year. However, this specific protest was largely due to protesting against Columbus Day, which many people now call Indigenous Peoples Day.

No stranger to speaking out against topics of conversation

Lennon is no stranger to providing commentary on social issues and politics. Back in May, he commented on the use of the term “partner” in relationships. “When did it become woke to say ‘my partner?’ I mean it’s the least sexy moniker I can think of. It’s as if you’re working together at a law firm. I’d rather be called ‘my b—h.’”
