Mariah Carey‘s fans are renown for rallying against the star’s detractors and their latest target is UK TV presenter Eamonn Holmes.
The veteran broadcaster is not one to hold his tongue and has been vocal about his dislike for the songbird and her diva antics over the years. It’s a stance he says is directly linked to experiences interviewing Mimi in the past.
His latest jab (which came during a segment discussing an unflattering viral clip) seems to be one too many for the singer’s “Lambs.”
For, they’ve launched a petition demanding an apology.
Full story below…
This video was posted along with the following explanation…
Via the petition page:
Anyone who feels an apology is needed from mr Holmes please sign the petition which is to be forwarded to ITV bosses / This Morning production team
Why this is important??
Mr Eamon Holmes has dismissed Mariah Carey’s achievements on ‘This Morning’ and says this is rubbish, he seems to hate Mariah’s achievements and does not believe she has sold as many records as reported or has achieved more number 1’s than Elvis, claims nobody owns her music apart from the Christmas song she wrote and produced. On twitter he upset Fans by saying Mariah is rude, she treats people badley and then when he was questioned on twitter he got very angry and called fans using words such as deluded, stupid, weird and Arse. Mariah Carey’s fans think an apology for discrediting her career on national television and for the personal attacks on fans who tried to prove him wrong should be issued by Mr Holmes himself on ‘This Morning’ show . We would expect ITV and the producers of ‘This Morning’ to look into this and see how they think their host has behaved and whether an apology is appropriate. Thank you.
As at writing, only 32 people have signed.
While it’s arguably admirable to see this sect of Mariah’s supporters so energised, we can’t help but wonder why they’re so pressed.
Ultimately, Holmes’ opinion is just that…his opinion. Something he’s more than entitled to have and should be at liberty to share.
We suspect the annoyance of Carey’s crusaders is more so about his timing and fundamentally stems from the fact that their hero’s public image is presently in the pits. Ironically, due to things she’s doing herself – namely tacky reality shows, staged relationships, embarrassing ensembles, and cringeworthy performances.
Here at TGJ, we love us some Mariah and will always vouch for her legacy. But her present reality defines unfortunate. The sooner she realises this and makes the necessary changes, the sooner critiques from the likes of Holmes won’t even matter.
Just our two cents.
