Gordon in the morning: America won't take Dappy

Trouble as N-Dubz try to spin their fifteen minutes out by vanishing into an uncaring American market. Gordon reports this morning that Dappy can't get a visa for the US:

N-DUBZ star DAPPY has been a naughty boy in the past and it has caught up with the little fella now the band are due to meet big-hitting label bosses in New York.

It's curious - usually The Sun is pretty unforgiving about young people who've behaved violently trying to get special treatment, but Gordon seems quite forgiving about Dappy's conviction on two accounts of assault just over a year ago. Apparently spitting in someone's face is "being a naughty boy". Why, you might almost chuckle at it.

Gordon somehow types this with a straight face:
Dappy has had a bad run recently. Last week he sent offensive texts to a Radio 1 listener who laid into the band on air.

But he is growing up and deserves a chance to redeem himself by making a dent in the US chart.

He's grown as a person since, erm, sending death threats to a woman last week.

"Last week he sent offensive texts to a Radio 1 listener who laid into the band on air."

Is Gordon trying to rewrite history here? Nothing happened 'on air'; Someone sent in a text, which wasn't read out, but which Dappy decided to note down and respond to with a death threat later. It's not exactly this generation's Matt Bianco.

God, imagine a death threat from Matt Bianco.

"But he is growing up and deserves a chance to redeem himself by making a dent in the US chart."

Yes, because when I received that death threat from the man who works at my local supermarket's Cheese counter, I forgave him when I heard he'd taken on an extra shift at the coffee shop.

Is this the same Dappy who was in the news a few weeks ago speaking out against Cyber bullying? I think we have a new Twat In The Hat.
