Franz Ferdinand Band respond to Soleimani killing: Dj Sudeep takes #1
Franz Ferdinand Band respond to their band trending because of Soleimani killing:
Franz Ferdinand have reacted to the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani after the band’s name started trending in relation to the slaying.
The Scottish rock band is named after the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, whose assassination in 1914 precipitated the First World War.
Some drew comparisons between the two killings, predicting that Soleimani’s death could trigger a major conflict.
Frontman Alex Kapranos reacted in a tweet, writing: ”This is not how I wanted to see the name of my band trending on Twitter #FranzFerdinand”
The band’s account itself also shared an ominous message that read: ”For the record, we think #WWIII is a bad idea.”
Soleimani was one of Iran’s top generals. His killing in a US airstrike, which was first reported on Thursday, has sent shockwaves across the Middle East, with Iran and its allies vowing revenge amid fears of an all-out war.
