The year 2020 just keeps on giving. Although we've heard news of terrible happenings throughout the year, this incident may not be as tragic, apart from the viewpoint of one unfortunate rock star. Johnny Rotten, most commonly known as the lead singer for punk legends, the Sex Pistols, was reportedly a victim of a flea onslaught this weekend. According to TVNZ, the parasitic bugs took aim at his penis, as well as other parts of his body. 

"I looked down there this morning at my willy and there's a f**king flea bite on it. And there's another one on the inside of my leg," Rotten explained. Apparently, the attack originated from a group of squirrels that Rotten had befriended at his Venice Beach home in Los Angeles. The rock star chooses to not "blame the poor squirrels" but has opted for a treatment of Vaseline on his body to ease the itching.

"The bites, wow, last night was murder because of it. The itching too. It's such a poxy thing to get caught out on. The only way around it, because I'm not going to blame the poor little squirrels, is to Vaseline my legs," he said, adding, "I just hope they don't get the wrong idea."

Meanwhile, hop on to social media and you'll find a slew of humorous reactions from fans. "Squirrels love nuts. Maybe this squirrel is blind?" wrote a user on Instagram while another said, "God Save the Peen."

One user noted, "Fool of me thinking RHCP’s Flea was involved on this headline." A user wrote, "2020 was going so well, and then this... Praying for a complete recovery." One fan joked, "Lmao his sex pistol."

Other humorous comments poured in on Twitter too. "Anarchy in his pants, apparently," wrote a user. Another added, "'A flea bit Johnny Rotten's Wllly' Was NOT on my bizzaro 2020 bingo card. What a year."



 

 



 

Rotten has also explained that he's been feeding and looking after the squirrels by spending "a lot of money". In his new book, 'I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right', the singer said, "I'm determined to keep my squirrel friends independent, y'know. There's no petting. If they want to nudge up that's fine, but I know it's for a peanut and not because I'm lovely." He added, "Wow, do they love me for [the food I buy for them]. I'm definitely spending a lot of money on these little f**kers."

The book released last month and reflects on the Sex Pistols, Public Image Ltd, Rotten's art and his life story during informal evenings of conversation and audience questions.
