U2 singer Bono is in a bit of hot water it seems. According to reports by the Daily Mail and BBC, the Irish singer allegedly called Chris Martin a “wanker” live on a Radio 1 show on Friday. The presenter reportedly asked Bono if he thought that the Coldplay singer is as talented as Paul McCartney to which the U2 singer allegedly said, “I think he’s that good a melodist, but he’s a wanker.” Bono then allegedly went on to say, “He’s obviously a completely dysfunctional character and a cretin but he happens to be a great melodist and up there with Ray Davies, Noel Gallagher and Paul McCartney.” After Bono refused to apologize for cursing on air, the presenter apologized for him to listeners.
