Even For Joey Barton, This Weekend’s Tweets About Thinning The Herd Were Over-The-Top

Even For Joey Barton, This Weekend’s Tweets About Thinning The Herd Were Over-The-Top

To call Joey Barton and Twitter a combustible mix is to undersell the combination of Joey Barton and Twitter by a factor of several million. Joey likes to speak his mind, even when he probably shouldn’t. Joey, as you know, can be a bit moody. He has something of a temper. This weekend, an annoyed Joey decided to use the Twitter soapbox to express how much he would like to see a large portion of the human population die. Fun times.

First, Joey wishes for a cruel figure to take the reins of Britain (remember, Joey is not currently in Britain) and rid the population of a few people.

So many annoying c*nts on twitter. I really hope dictator takes control of Britain and starts executing the stupid. I know thats harsh…

…and my following might reduce by a few thousand but f*ck it. It’d be well worth it.

Since the sudden appearance of a British Pol Pot is unlikely, Joey changed tact. How about a helpful suggestion for his followers on how to improve themselves?

I’ve heard that drinking a pint of mercury really improves your IQ. Some of you should try it…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 7, 2012

Oh. So not exactly a genuine suggestion.

Hold on…is Joey Barton in favor of the death of stupid people? I can’t tell.

Theres too many people on the planet already. I am just letting you all know that I am in favour of a cull of the stupid.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 7, 2012


Not satisfied with expressing his belief that stupid people don’t deserve to live, Joey moved on to the reproductive habits of said stupid people.

Stupid people breed stupid people on the whole, the same way fat people breed fat people. Its not rocket science.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 7, 2012

Perhaps now is a good time to tell Joey, and the 1000+ people who retweeted this particular statement, that no one thinks of themselves as stupid, even when they are in fact stupid. Just saying, guys.

Apart from that, all the none stupid out there, have a lovely day. All the thick. Go f*ck yourselves…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 7, 2012

Yes, all of you “none stupid” people, have a lovely day. Ahem.

Time to end this particular line of tweets, Joey. Got something you want to go out on?

In a foul, scowling mood today. Must be my time of the month. Me and twitter shouldn’t flirt today. It’ll only endin tears. Good day…

You’re hilarious, Joey. Sick, and potentially psychotic, but hilarious.
