Members of U2 reacted to the terrorist attack in Manchester, England, this week during the band’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Bono had a strong response to the horrifying attack where a suicide bomber killed 22 people outside of an Ariana Grande concert. Some of the victims were children. The Islamic State terrorist group has claimed that they are responsible for the attack; police have named Salman Abedi, 22, as the suspect in the bombing.
"They hate music; they hate women; they even hate little girls,” Bono described terrorists. “They hate everything that we love, and the worst of humanity was on view in Manchester last night.”
On Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu,” Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere praised Bono for his honesty about what fuels terrorists’ actions. They contrasted Bono’s reaction with more politically correct comments from Queen guitarist Brian May, who said “compassion” should be our reaction to terrorist attack and the impetus is on the West to “break the cycle of violence.”
