U2 frontman Bono met with Vice President Mike Pence this past weekend, praising the former Indiana governor for his work on AIDS assistance in Africa. That didn’t go over so well with some on Twitter.
The rocker and the politician met during the Munich Security Conference, where the Irishman lauded the American for twice supporting bills in Congress that provided medication to suffering nations overseas.
Here’s what Pence tweeted from their face-to-face:

Twitter had some other ideas.
The same Mike Pence who caused a massive HIV outbreak in the state he governed? Sit down, Bono. https://t.co/Cgq4gMndvP

Didn’t think it was possible to dislike Bono anymore than I already do but this is just embarrassing pic.twitter.com/gvEx5GQK5E

The hell is wrong with Bono? Pence defunded AIDS treatment in his state & ended up with one of the highest HIV rates in the developed world. https://t.co/Ynwmcr0601

Bono praising Pence for supporting HIV meds in Africa ignores his responsibility for the explosion of HIV in Indiana through program cuts
