Altiyan Childs Bashed In Tasmania

Altiyan Childs the X Factor winner is being quite zen about the fact that over the last weekend he was bashed by four guys.

The Daily Telegraph reports:

THE eccentric X Factor winner Altiyan Childs was kicked to the ground and bashed by a group of drunken “haters” following a sold-out concert at the weekend. tasmainia

The cave-dwelling rocker was left injured and “shaken” by the unprovoked attack in the Hobart suburb of Glenorchy in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The assault occurred after a show at the Derwent Entertainment Centre, where the singer stayed signing autographs and posing for photos with fans until about midnight.

“We were at a quietish pub where a group of guys inside were calling me a ‘dirty faggot’ and a ‘wanker’ and stuff like that,” Childs said yesterday.

“After a little while it got the better of me and we decided to leave. We were followed out by four big Tassie blokes and, yeah, I was attacked.

However he said he is not going to hold it against the Apple Isle.

He is clearly happy that his album has gone double platinum and his concert tour has sold out.

Channel 7 are yet to announce is they will be going ahead with a second series of The X Factor.

It’s the only way this guy could ever get a hit.

Well named, dave – at least you’re honest about yourself, if a little confused. He already has hits and has won a competition. I’m guessing you could also be called ‘non X-factor-winner’ or maybe ‘just ‘non-winner’.

Perhaps if terms like ‘cave-dwelling rocker’ were replaced by something with a bit more logic and respect that might help?
Still I accept it’s my own fault for ‘choosing’ to read ‘ravings’!

Disgusting show of jealousy and cowardice, which is at the root of so much bullying.

Here’s a guy on TV telling you that his unused sperm went into his bloodstream and transformed his life. Shame on anyone taken in by such rubbish.

One doesn’t have to know him to tell that he’s a garden variety fraud with a very ordinary voice and of dubious personality.

Your words…….

Altiyan is indeed polarising you either love him or think he is a bit loopy. I don’t think all parties will agree on this point.

However as much as Ronan Keating gushed about him last year, I don’t think international stardom is heading his way.
