Sean Lennon on His Dad, John Lennon, and Defending Yoko: “I’ve never seen two people have more love and respect for each other than my parents”


Sean Lennon has come to Twitter to defend his mother, Yoko Ono, and to counter what he sees as the wrong idea about his late dad, John Lennon.

Sean is such a lovely guy, and I don’t blame him for putting the record straight. He also calls Paul McCartney’s “McCartney III” an instant classic.

Most importantly he says of his parents: “I’ve never seen two people have more love and respect for each other than my parents.”

It’s 2020, I can’t believe anyone is questioning John and Yoko’s love. They were human beings, they separated at one point. John had a relationship with May Pang. But Yoko deserves our respect. She’s also 87, and frail. Sean also deserves our respect as he cares for her.
