A Dutch artist, Frans Smeets, has created a sculpture of the U2 frontman, in Jesus garb with a Nike sign and Emporio Armani sunglasses. At his feet lies a dying African child in which he is totally disinterested.

The controversial work is entitled "Jesus Loves You Too."

    BONO is sooooo fake. He talks a lot, and pockets the money, leaving Africa high and dry.

  51. FUCK THE STINKY DUTCH says – reply to this


    51

    The racist Dutch are just pissed off because Bono has been so active in humanitarian efforts on behalf of Africans. He also has brought the public's attention to the horrible human rights violations committed by the filthy bloodsucking South Africans.

    Didn't Bono rip off his own charity or something like that, withholding funds, whatever?

    I don't like him anymore.

  67. Jerry says – reply to this


    67

    brings up a good point about Bono's hypocrisy. Guy could give 90% of his wealth to charity and still live like a king. Hard to listen to a guy say "give" when he's wearing shades that cost more than 3 months rent

  68. Ave says – reply to this


    68

    Mother fucker.
    Let's try that again.

    Strangely enough, that is EXACTLY what I see when I look at Bono. I can't stand that twat.

    and U2 sucks.

    And what is the point of this? Who would want to look at it?

    un deserved of Bono. he's done more good than all of us bloggers together, and that dutch human

  71. barbara says – reply to this


    71

    um wow thats a strong statement. lol bonos gonna be pissed.

  72. another homo says – reply to this


    72

    not a big fan of the newer U2 stuff, but Bono is one of the few celebrities actually trying to make a difference for the better for them, in Africa and around the world. Whoever the artist is is only trying to cash in on someone elses fame. Not good as a piece of art or message. I commend the artist for trying, but it just doesnt succeed. There are so many other musicians he could have used and made his point, Bono just isnt one of them. Thumbs down to this one, He should have used the current Pope to make his point, now that would have caused a sensation and gotten him a lot more publicity.

    Bono is a typical hypocritical Euro-cunt! I just hope those other two phony bitches (Jolie and Madonna) are nearby to scoop up that Negroid baby and fight over who's the biggest humanitarian!!! TWATS ALL!

  75. lj says – reply to this


    75

    u support celebs like amy winehouse who is nothin but a cokehead and someone makes this statue about a man who has raised millions to help africa? wow…

  76. Fuck the Dutch? says – reply to this


    76

    You must be one of the most ignorant people I know. What the hell are you talking about?
    Holland is one of the very few countries in the EU that actually gives money to Africa for redevelopment and help. I'd say African people are a lot more accepted here than they are in the States.

  77. What it means? says – reply to this


    77

    Well, probably that Bono acts like some sort of Jesus but only because he's sponsored (hence the Nike logo).

  78. lisa says – reply to this

    wtf is this. god that's disgusting.

  79. Dilly says – reply to this


    79

    I usually don't mind you adding those white marks to photos, but it's really irritating this time, because this is a photograph of someone's art work, which you've now tainted. I really would've prefered to have seen the photo itself.

    83

    And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.

    If it wasn't for Bono the problems in Africa wouldn't even be on the global radar anymore. How many other "Live Aid" artists from the 1980's are still dedicated to ending poverty? Frans Smeets has the right to freedom of expression but I think this is despicable.

  85. Frans Smeets is not a real artist says – reply to this


    85

    I think this is a stupid statement. Bono has spent a lot of time and energy helping others in this world and this sculpture is just a stupid attempt by a nobody to get media attention. What a loser.

  86. everyone is evil, even the dutch. says – reply to this


    86

    WHAT ABOUT THE BELGIANS IN THE CONGO? DID YOU DUTCHIES ALREADY FORGET?!?

  87. Bout ittt.. says – reply to this

    Dutch sculptor Frans Smeets has unveiled Jesus Loves You Too (U2). The sculpture depicts the Irish rockstar in a long white robe similar to those that Jesus is often depicted in, only this one is labeled with a Nike symbol. The look is topped off with Emporio Armani sunglasses. At Bono's feet is an emaciated African infant whose eyes lie startlingly wide open. Its mouth is open as well, as if it is crying out, but the cry seems to fall on deaf ears, as Bono looks straight ahead and appears uninterested, even as he holds out his hands, palms facing upward.

    According to the artist's website, Smeets is a "Dutch historian, philosopher, and artist. He makes art in which history, philosophy, skills, globalisation and the controversy between man and nature are important." Most of his sculptures are made of mixtures of materials such as "earthenware product, beeswax, paper, walnutwood, printboards, and woodpulp." The sculpture seems to match recent criticism over Bono's activism, particularly his DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade Africa) organization and its Product Red campaign. There is a multitude of praise and criticism for the rock singer's activism and everyone seems to have their own opinion. Local critic Liam Fay, writer for the Sunday Times, says about him, " It’s rarely mentioned now that Bono concentrates on international emergencies but there was a time when he also believed he had the answer to Ireland’s domestic problems… But that answer has changed with comic frequency."

    I agree with this image because Bono is a pure fake!

    ::sarcasim:: gee that makes a good point, good way in to expressing art!!

  90. kaydawg says – reply to this


    90

    YES I LOVE THAT!!!! Thats thought provoking art. Although Bono has done some great things for Africa and poverty he is just as much a slave to the corporate world. The fact that hes wearing priest garb relates to how great he thinks he is. Egomaniac! And the Nike clothing is ironic because it is it a company that uses Child Labour. I hope he sees this work, because there is some truth in it.

    It's about time somebody realized the irony that is Bono. I'm so tired of his crying poverty, living in a castle and vacationing on Islands where nobody else can go.

    Whoever did this is SUCH an idiot! They obviously know nothing about BONO.

    Very accurate portrayal of Bono. Cant stand him.

  98. skinnygirluver says – reply to this


    98

    AND THEY WONDER WHY NO ONE HELPS THE POOR!!! He gets totally bashed and all he's ever done was get the word out on what the hell is going on. He risks being "preachy" which is NOT cool for a Rock and Roll artist and he still gets bashed.
