When you become a famous face, it is often the right thing to do, to be a good role model for your younger fans, respect where you came from and respect those that have been there and done that. It is these three things that former X Factor winner James Arthur seems to have forgotten, as he regularly goes on rants at other people.
With that in mind, it is no surprise that James Arthur gets a lot of stick back but, while he is happy to give it out, he never quite seems to be able to take it. Who remembers when Frankie Boyle made him look foolish on Twitter, so James came back with threats of physical violence?
Anyway, Arthur was being interviewed by Digital Spy, when he said of the haters, "It's hard to avoid it sometimes. It's mainly the commenters... some of them are the dregs of society!"
He added, "I've read articles about me online that I've thought put me in quite a positive light, and then the first comment is 'what a prick James Arthur is'. Then you see five more like that. I'm just a guy with an opinion, whether I'm in the public eye or not."
Most recently, James Arthur has had a pop at Kingsland Road, insisting that they are not good enough to make it. Don't worry Kingsland Road, you have the good looks, the charisma and can sing fairly well, three things that James Arthur hasn't got!
