It’s not unusual for high-profile celebrities to receive endorsements from companies to say good thinks about their products, whether you agree with this or not, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that Breaking Bejamin frontman has decided to throw a bit of a hissyfit for being asked to promote Star Wars Battlefront.
It seems, despite dressing up as Kylo Ren for Halloween, who you may know is the villain from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, Frontman, Benjamin Burnley wanted nothing to do with the game.
On Instagram, Burnley shared a photo of the game which he’d smashed, along with the caption:
They wanted to pay me to post that I like this peice of shit game .. They can shove it up their ass this game sucks I’d rather watch the god awful prequels then play this peice of shit one more second that’s for ruining Star Wars EA :)
Oddly, the so called “peice [sic] of shit” game has been receiving favourable reviews online (ours is currently in the works), so it seems Burnley is wanting to go for the hipster opinion rather than actually admitting that he likes a game.
Nonetheless, his collective 100,000 followers across Twitter and Instagram have still seen him posting about Star Wars Battlefront, albeit in a negative light, so ultimately, he’s just promoted the game, presumably without being paid for doing so.
That’s what you call logic, right there.
