Drenge condemn The Sun newspaper following ‘racist’ article about British muslims – watch

Duo are set to hit the road for NME Awards Tour 2016 with Austin, Texas

Drenge have posted a video online condemning The Sun newspaper.

Posting the clip on Facebook, which you can watch below, one of the duo is seen holding up a copy of the paper with the headline “1 in 5 Brit Muslims’ sympathy for jihadis”.

It is unclear which band member is carrying the papers but he can be heard saying: “It’s hateful, it’s racist and it’s fit for the bin.”

He then dumps a bundle of copies of The Sun in the bin. Watch below. The band also posted a message saying, “Don’t Buy The Sun”.
