Piers Morgan slams Rolling Stones for 'deeply depressing' decision to retire Brown Sugar.

Piers Morgan is far from happy at the criticism towards the Rolling Stones ' hit Brown Sugar as the band pull it from its playlist

The band, who are currently touring in America, originally released Brown Sugar in 1971 under the title Black P**** before Mick Jagger decided the name was too "nitty-gritty".In the first verse, the song talks about slaves being sold and beaten in Louisiana and makes references to a "slaver" that whips "women just around midnight".

Other lyrics include: "Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good? Ah, got me feelin' now for brown sugar, just like a black girl should."The band had decided to swap the lyrics "black girl" for "young girl" but that didn't stop the outcry from certain sections of the public.

And because of that, the band have decided to pull the tune from any of its further concerts - a decision that has infuriated the former Good Morning Britain presenter. Piers, 56, said it's "incredible" that people can find offence with the lyrics "in an era when rap lyrics are riddled with not just hardcore sexual content but also vile misogyny, sexism, homophobia, rape fantasies and violence including entreaties to kill the police". headtopics.com

Writing in his Mail Online column, Piers described the band's decision to oust their song as "a big deal", saying it is their second most played song in their entire catalogue.He took aim at band member Keith Richards, blasting him for "no longer having the stomach to stand up for yourself" after the musician said he doesn't want to get into conflicts over the tune.

Piers then tried to defend the song saying it is a song that is "aimed at defending and supporting black women, not one that seeks to denigrate them or make light of slavery".And he blamed the "woke-fuelled narrative" for trying to say the song - and therefore the band - is racist.

He claims that the song's "ban" follows in the footsteps of other hit tunes being pulled, such as Baby It's Cold Outside and says nobody would dare go after rappers for their lyrics despite many being "appallingly racist". Keith himself did claim that he hopes the song may one day return to the band's set.

Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, he said he still hopes the band can "resurrect the babe" at some point.Mick also said they will have to see how it goes."We've played Brown Sugar every night since 1970, so sometimes you think, we'll take that one out for now and see how it goes," he said. headtopics.com
