Apparently, all the “ginger” jokes and comments have offended Mick Hucknall. He equates it to racism, and can’t understand why people identify him so closely with the color of his hair.
“The pop star questioned why a string of prominent Britons were not similarly defined by the colour of their hair.”
Hmmm. Perhaps because their locks aren’t quite as shockingly red as yours, Mick. Oh, and they also didn’t name their famous bands “Simply Red” after the color of your hair. Just some theories.
