James Arthur Dropped From Label After Recording This Lyric

James Arthur has been dropped from Simon Cowell’s record label after recording a lyric that was seen to be promoting terrorism. Whoops.

The response to James Arthur’s Twitter Q&A a while back was rough — really rough. He’s now been dealt a fresh blow after being reportedly dropped from Simon Cowell’s record label for a lyric “promoting terrorism”.

But he’s definitely cocked up here as Simon Cowell — who usually sticks up for him — has seen to it that he no longer has any involvement with Syco records; the label he was signed to after winning X Factor a couple years back.

Arthur tried to clear things up on Twitter, but to no avail:

On another note, can you believe someone got this tattoo? Christ:
