PSA about the band
« on: May 13, 2020, 12:42:16 PM »
From the U2.com forum:


Fake U2 Social Media Accounts


A note from the moderators:

It has been brought to our attention on several occasions, people trying to impersonate one of the band members or someone associated with the band. Please be aware of a few things:

-The only official social media pages for the band are the ones with the authenticity checkmark like this:

 main social media:

https://www.instagram.com/u2/

https://twitter.com/u2

https://www.facebook.com/u2/

https://www.youtube.com/user/U2official/

https://u2.tumblr.com/

-No member of the band currently has personal social media accounts. All communication comes from the official pages listed above.

-Any account that claims to be a band member and says “personal account of [Bono, Larry, Edge, Adam or any variation of their name]” most definitely is NOT a member of the band.

-At no time will any member of the band, the band’s management, the moderators, or anyone associated with the band ever contact you via private message asking for passwords, personal information, or money for (but not limited to) things such as meet and greets.

In the event you should come across someone impersonating the band or someone associated with the band:

-First and foremost, report that account to whichever social media platform you have seen it on. This is the biggest part of getting the impersonation stopped.

-Please add the information in this thread to make others aware and to use caution.

-If you don’t feel comfortable adding information here, send a private message to myself, Max and Bigwave so we can have a look at it. As Zootopia is our primary residence, sometimes you guys are our eyes and ears on the social media platforms.

Thanks to all Zootopians and take care.

No but i do seem to recall the time Jick was quite upset when someone scaled the walls of his estate and spray painted "you give love a bad name"  all over his poolside sex hammock.
