Default Mick Fleetwood on Social Media

Fleetwood Mac are facing a huge backlash via social media.
In particular there are so many negative posts on Mick's Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/mickfleetwoodofficial/?hl=en

In particular the picture of him with Christine labelled 'Make new friends, but keep the old; those are silver, these are gold.' had loads of negative responses but most of the seem to have been deleted.
The more recent picture labelled 'Where words fail, music speaks' still has loads of negativity but it looks as if somebody has called him out for deleting loads of negative comments;
The feed here has been changed : how bout you change it back to the most recent first and stop deleting posts? @mickfleetwoodofficial People who have been with the band for year's are posting here and they are being erased and silenced from a Rock band?? Let them have their say in true Rock fashion.


I wonder if the backlash could get that bad that the tour promoters might encourage Mick to reconsider? I don't think it would come to that and even if it did I'm sure Lindsey would not agree to rejoin now anyway.

I hope he wouldn't rejoin now.

Let the band DIE with egg on it's face. It's f*cking embarrassing.

No, I wouldn't want him to go back now either. I just like the idea of them going grovelling to him.

I rather like that one, myself.

No way. Contracts are signed and practice has begun.
They were aware of the backlash. I love how they tried to hide the fact he was fired. There was more confusion than backlash in 1987 because Lindsey left them.
Gosh I hope he writes a book. Can you imagine the chapters. The Tango chapter would be riveting.

People are pissed! I read thru some of the comments--it's like a river of molten lava. All I can say is Mick, Stevie and Chris better rehearse their talking points for when an interviewer asks "why was Lindsey fired".

I left a couple of angry comments there myself! I'm so happy there's so much backlash!

Rehearsals have begun and dates will be forthcoming on 4/23 so it's not going to happen.
