Johnny Rotten quits I’m a Celebrity after calling audience “fucking cunts” live on air.
Once the favorite to win, Sex Pistol John Lydon has quit the UK’s I’m a Celebrity–Get Me Out of Here. Earlier this week, during a live broadcast, he called the audience “fucking cunts” because they did not vote him off. He removed himself from the show yesterday, because, as ITV said, “He said he was bored, really, and decided to leave.” He won’t be allowed to return, the Guardian reports.
