About "Fan Content Warning"
At the time of John Lennon's death, both Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono made a simple request to John's fans: Never repeat the name of his killer.
Doing so would only give his killer the fame and notoriety he was seeking.
It is the official policy of the Beatles News website that we do not ever mention the name of the man that murdered John Lennon.
However, occasionally valid news stories are published in the mainstream press that do include the name of John Lennon's killer.
While we can't control the content of the other news sources we link to here at Beatles News, you will see, in the descriptions of the stories we've linked to, that we never use his name.
When we do include articles such as this on Beatles News, they will also include the "Fan Content Warning" message in red italic letters.
To honor John, and to honor Paul and Yoko's request, it is our sincere hope at Beatles News that everyone remembers, and tries not to ever speak the name of John Lennon's killer.
Together, we can keep the memory of John Lennon alive, while his killer fades into obscurity.
