Steve Coogan calls out Bono for tax avoidance

Clickbait! Got ya! He did it in character for Michael Winterbottom's satirical film Greed:

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

They're all multi-millionaires together.

It's tongue in cheek. Others won't see it that way though, just pushes the narrative.

Didn't even bother to look...Coogan's a fine one to talk...
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

It's in character. I'm a bit iffy about Coogan due to the drugs issue, but I liked him in Around the World in 80 Days with Jackie Chan.
