Racial Abuses – Darren Hayes
Darren Hayes is arrested!
I was quite surprised when I read The Age newspaper this morning – the headline Ex-Savage Garden star arrested created quite a stir in my house-hold. Yes – Darren Hayes was arrested in London.
After all some of my cousins love Darren Hayes , nevermind that he is married (even to a man: Richard Cullen).
After reading about it – there is one interesting thing about this arrest. Darren was arrested due to his alleged “hate speech” in the form of racial abuse.
“…he (Darren Hayes) was arrested for the alleged racial abuse of a staff member at Busaba Eathai in Wardour Street, in London’s West End, on July 22.”
Nevertheless Darren’s website has denied such “alleged” wrong doing.
“Darren is unable to comment to any extent as the incident is presently under investigation by the police, with whom he has cooperated fully.
However he is deeply upset at the allegation which he strenuously denies and anyone who knows Darren will recognise that the particular nature of the allegation is totally abhorrent to him and contrary to everything for which he has stood”
