Lordi Fans Demand Apology

2006 Eurovision winners Lordi have about 15,000 of their fans demanding an appology from one of the French television hosts of the contest. The fans have all signed an internet petition at www.ipetitions.com

Alegedly, the French tv host said "Finland has been participating in the Eurovision contest for the past 44 years and has never won. They're certainly not gonna win with this", after Lordi's May 20 show. Another host said "It's fresh, it's light, it's sober. I didn't picture the Finns like this. They'll be at the Vincennes zoo in the fall."

Lordi ended up winning Eurovision with a record number of points and both remarks have greatly angered Lordi fans. And so they are demanding an apology. To sign the petition, go here ( in French only, scroll to the bottom of the page).

lol, how about an apology from Lordi for having a stupid name. Mightn't be quite so silly in Finnish, though, I suppose. Meh, to the fans; suck it up. Is it not good enough that the french dumbarse had to reassess their ability to critique? asking for an apology is pathetic. get over it.

An apology for a snippy remark is a bit out rageous, besides after winning a record amount of points I think it shoved ot in their faces well enough!

i dont like this band Lordi at all, but for the hosts of a contest or dj of a metal station should never be so negative as these guys.....im sure they are experts in what is good and bad music as everyone in their position thinks they are, however they were out of line and should apologize especially seeing as how this band won the contest even after they publicly tried to humiliate them. They were also equating the stupidity of the band to Finnish culture which is completely rediculous and totally out of line. Typical of the French high and mighty attitude though. The only good thing to ever come from that country is Gojira.
