          Why Sinead O’Connor Says She Ripped Up A Picture Of The Pope On Live TV


          September 12, 2017

          Sinéad O’Connor became infamous throughout the world in 1992 when, during an appearance on Saturday Night Live, she tore up a photo of Pope John Paul II. In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, O’Connor explains her decision.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?

          “What people don’t know is that first of all, we in Ireland knew 10 years before you all did that child abuse within the Catholic Church. We had evidence,” O’Connor explains. “The photo itself had been in my mother’s bedroom wall all my life. I was genuinely very angry with what the church were doing. By ripping that picture, you know, I risked my career and everything.”

          She continues. “But I know what you’re getting at and yes, this didn’t occur to me until about six months ago, it’s my father.”
