Sean Ono Lennon Criticizes Prince Harry’s Memoir 'Spare' on Social Media

 June 2, 2024

Sean Ono Lennon recently sparked a stir on social media after humorously dismissing Prince Harry's memoir, 'Spare,' with a succinct "Spare Me", Fox News reported. 

Sean, son of musician John Lennon, shared his views on social media platform X, sparking varied public reactions. Some defended Prince Harry, leading to a lively exchange where Sean balanced humor with sharp criticism.

Social Media Reacts to Sean's Comments

Among the responses, some users stepped in to defend the Duke of Sussex's decision to write the memoir. However, Sean Lennon continued to engage them with his distinctive wit. "Well, you were the spare Lennon," one user commented, to which Lennon replied tersely, "If you say so."

The back-and-forth online presented a mix of empathy and satire from Lennon's side. He said his criticism stemmed partly from a personal understanding of the pressures of living up to a famous last name but also from what he perceived as whining.

Sean Ono Lennon highlighted the irony and humor in their situations, both being labeled as 'the spare' next to highly prominent family members.

While Prince Harry explores this theme painfully in his memoir, Lennon addresses it with a lighter touch, indicating a difference in handling similar emotional landscapes.

Prince Harry and Sean Lennon: A Familiar Strain

Sean Lennon once met Prince Harry, concluding that the royal was not as impressive as expected.

This interaction has flavored his perceptions, which he has expressed in his recent comments. "We met once. That was before I realized he was an idiot," Lennon remarked candidly about their encounter.

"I do empathize with him generally. But the way he whines and wangs on about things is too much," he added, portraying a blend of sympathetic understanding and frustration with Prince Harry's public demeanor.

Lennon's Oscar wins for his animated short "War Is Over," and his management of a music record label mark a successful career pivot from his parents' shadows, unlike what he perceives as Prince Harry's approach. In defending his achievements, Sean stated, "I don't care, but I did win an Oscar this year, so... I think I'm doing okay."

Lennon's Take on Public Perception and Humor

Again emphasizing his light-hearted intention, Sean Lennon told his audience that some of his comments were made in jest. "I'm just having a little fun. I think he's earned some mockery," he explained. This suggests that while his criticisms are pointed, they are not entirely without humor.

Responding to a critical comment, Lennon elaborated:

"There is nothing I haven't realized about what we share. Your assumption I don't see those things because I made a joke is absolutely off base."

In summary, this incident highlights the complexities when public figures engage with each other's life stories. Through shared experiences or isolated incidents, their interactions often reveal deeper narratives about navigating their unique yet parallel lives.
