Yoko tweets chilling photo of bloodstained glasses
Yoko Ono is a passionate supporter for gun control since her husband, John Lennon, was shot and killed outside of their apartment building in Manhattan back in 1980.
To make her point yesterday she tweeted a chilling photo of what appears to be her late husband’s bloodstained glasses, writing on the photo, “Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980.”
She tweeted the photo several times with different messages, in one tweet she wrote, “The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him. Yoko Ono Lennon.”
Continuing to tweet she wrote, “31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone.”
The image she used was a Photoshopped version from her “Season of Glass” CD cover.
Earlier this week she pleaded with fellow activist and filmmaker Michael Moore writing, “Michael Moore @mmflint Join me to kick off a mass movement against gun violence from your living room on Sat March 23 – Yes! love, yoko.”
Always the activist Ono and son Sean Lennon joined Susan Sarandon earlier this year traveling rural Pennsylvania in a bus with a banner ‘Artists Against Fracking,’ as they protested against the controversial use of fracking – a technique to extract oil out of rock formations.
