Disgusting headline on the front of The daily Star uk newspaper

So I went to the shop for some lunch and saw a horrible front page headline on a newspaper regarding prince . A total load of rubbish saying he kept women against there will for sex , it made me so angry. Is there anyone on here who can contact the right people to at least complain or let the right people who work for Prince see this and act accordingly. The newspaper is The daily Star in the UK

Just don't read it or focus on it. Prince never did and we need to follow suite. It is just such rubbish and one of the many stupid stories out there.

Whatever you heard about me is true
I change the rules and do what I wanna do

Don't let it get to you, antonb. This trash is par for the course when someone like Prince dies. They've done the full page tributes, "he was a god" stuff, now they are digging about trying to be the first to prove he did this or that to sell their comics (sorry newspapers) and get hits on their grotty sites. Sadly there are always parasites who try to make money out of celebrities - let it go in your mind or you'll drive yourself nuts. Focus on all the good things his true friends and associates have been saying about him over the past few days.

Thankyou for your thoughts, I know these things happen it just struck me how wrong it was. It was like going back in time from years ago when they used to write all kinds of crap about Prince. Which is just blatant lies.

I must admit here in the UK we don have some of the worst Tabloid newspapers. The sad fact is that you cannot slander someone in this situation and the amount of bizarre and unevidenced stories coming through is clearly a sign of the lack of morality and compassion from these papers.

I haven't read it inside. Its just people will read it and actually believe it. We have come a long way with Prince in that he has been getting good press the last few years. This just sets it back. And it's lies.

I read it in a cafe today. Complete evil fantasy. Some people need this type of sensationalism to liven up their very dull lives.

Be thankful we understand and value the truth.

Last time I look at that shit rag, even for the footy results.
Get up, come on let's do something.
