James Blunt Poses Near Auschwitz And Angers Fans

Posted: Updated:

Fans are not happy with James Blunt.

The "You're Beautiful" singer enraged fans by posing outside a dilapidated building near former Nazi death camp Auschwitz, and writing on his Facebook page: "Uh, this is my hotel in Poland," reports The Daily Mail.

Since the photo went up on Saturday, Blunt's Facebook page has been flooded with more than 17,000 comments and complaints regarding the bizarre remark made during his stay in Oświęcim, where Auschwitz is located.

According to The Daily Mail, the singer was actually staying in five-star accommodations throughout his tour, which included a stop at the Life Festival at Mosir Stadium, just a few miles from the site where hundreds of thousands were killed more than 60 years ago.

Despite the barrage of negative comments from fans the photo remains on Blunt's Facebook page.
