Calvin Harris blames the UK Government directly for disrespecting the Music industry.
In an Instagram post, Calvin Harris blames the UK Government’s way of treating the industry during the Pandemic. He posted an image of a burnt night club with a caption.
“As usual the UK government treating music industry like shit; contributes 5bn to the economy, generates massive tax revenues for NHS and other public services…besides that, culture is extremely fucking important…you’ve lost sight of what life is about…you’d rather live in a world of supermarkets and pharmaceutical drugs,” he wrote.
The Scottish Dj’s post came out after an interview of Sky News with the UK’s Minister for Care at the Department of Health and Social Care. During the interview with Minister Helen Whately, the Minister stated: “doesn’t make sense to continue supporting jobs where there simply isn’t work at the moment.”
In the comment section of Calvin’s post, a person commented. He commented: “1st pic is from a nightclub fire in Germany or Poland… f*ck all to do with the U.K. Also, you live in L.A. Got a edm pop album coming out? Pipe down, sell out.”
The DJ producer replied: “@christopher_findlay it’s a metaphorical image daft cunt…and aye as someone who didn’t come from money worked in a fish factory and Safeway before becoming one of the most successful british producers of all time, I’ll make my fucking comment 👍”
