Revealed: How Awakened Trolls Silenced The Rolling Stones’ Brown Sugar By Infiltrating Their Fan Club Online And Swaying The Song Lyrics Debate
Rolling Stones fans were shocked when the group announced last week that they were dropping one of their biggest hits, Brown Sugar, from their world tour.
Now I can reveal extraordinary details of how an organized group of awakened activists systematically targeted hundreds of thousands of worshipers across the world by infiltrating their fan clubs online.
The activist group posed as hardcore superfans of the Stones to gain access to the online subscription fan club IORR (named after their song It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll) before relentlessly hammering fans and threads with angry political trolling messages slamming the song’s reference to slavery.

The aggressive assault on the 40-year-old club caused such a wave of hysteria among fans and management that the band members felt compelled to announce that the track would no longer be played.
Guitarist Keith Richards, 77, seemed utterly stunned by the sudden and seemingly inexplicable level of hatred for the No.2 hit, which he championed, insisting the lyrics were a condemnation of the slave trade.
When asked why they hadn’t played it on their current tour, he replied, “You get it, huh? I do not know. I try to understand with the sisters where the beef is.
“Sisters” appears to be a reference to the organized group of activists who have aggressively targeted unsuspected fans in recent weeks, according to IORR founder and Norwegian Stones superfan Bjornulf Vik.

He has now been forced to shut down the fan club’s subscription service and has started to eliminate new members on a large scale in an attempt to kick out the awakened activist intruders.
Vik had warned rogue activist subscribers who trolled fans on his site that angry political posts on Brown Sugar would not be accepted.
The group announced the banning of the track four days later.
Vik said: “The IORR has recently been spammed with political posts related to Brown Sugar.
“Like a lot of other things, some people make this a highly political discussion. It seems that it is impossible for some to discuss Brown Sugar without becoming highly political and offensive.
