I'm Getting Unfairly

Hammered By Mexicans

Boy George says a bunch of Mexicans are ganging up on him online ... trashing him for tweeting about the new Presidente ... but George says it's all a misunderstanding gigante.

The drama unfolded on Twitter early Tuesday when the former Culture Club front man announced  he would be blocking "mostly Mexicans" from contacting him on the social network ... after he was blasted with hate-mail from our neighbors down south.

So why would anyone wanna hurt George? According to the singer's rep ... George tweeted about the Mexican election earlier this week ... saying, "Mexico has a hot new president and I hope he is good for the country!"

Problem is ... the tweet was MISQUOTED by several Mexican media outlets – which translated the tweets to: "So the Mexican president is a tyrant. Well, if that's true Mexico needs good wishes."

See the problemo?

Ever since the erroneous reports got out, George says he's been bombarded with nasty tweets ... and has now resorted to "blocking anyone who annoys me by calling me 'racist' or mentioning 'presidents!”

George says it just so happens that the perps are "mostly Mexicans."

BG's rep tells TMZ ... George has nothing against the Mexican people and calls the whole thing a "ridiculous situation [blown] out of proportion about nothing."

He adds, "George has no political motivation or even knows anything about the candidates involved or their history, it was simply a good luck to the whole country."

Should the headline have been "Boy George would love to be Hammered by a Mexican"?

First of all nobody in Mexico likes the new president, here in Mexico nobody knows Boy George and no one gives a $hit of whatever he has to say

The Mexicans were not here for 'thousands of years' that would be the Navajo, Hopi, Yuma, etc. The Mexican ancestors came from Spain and the land that is now Mexico, as they were Mayan. The Mayans did not inhabit the land that is now USA. Never did. If ANYONE is entitled to that land as you seem to think it would be USA Natives.

Gee! I never heard Boy George complain about getting hammered. Maybe he should try standing up straight for a change.

GOOD GRIEF!!!
