Yoko Ono on forgiving Chapman

clip from ~1990

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it. -John Lennon
"Laurel and Hardy, that's John and Yoko. And we stand a better chance under that guise because all the serious people like Martin Luther King and Kennedy and Gandhi got shot." -- John Lennon

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

George Harrison Interview About John Lennon's Death


Author ImaKiwi butImnotafruit (3 months)
I don't like Yoko she seems to be full of shit and didn't really live up to
her values she preached. But she was a important part of John life and in
the peace movement in the 60's even though she annoys the shit out of me
she was still a very important peace.

Author Daphne Larsson (4 months)
You've got to admire her strength in a horrific situation. If people don't
like her, so what? Just like the rest of us , she wasn't put on this
planet to please anyone else. As for forgiving Chapman, if she ever
does it will be for her healing and not for HIS benefit. He is a deluded
sociopath and she is right not to even mention him by name.

Author Belle Ayers (1 month)
So there more hate here for the woman who witnessed the crime than the
actual person who took John away from us.

Author MarkNGRichard (1 month)
All you FUCKING ASSHOLES Calling Yoko a Hypocrite should be disgusted with
yourselves. If it were your husband,wife or child would you be so FUCKING
Forgiving I bet not because I know I wouldn't be if someone shot and killed
my Loved one in cold blood. So before you call her names think of how you
would be if this happened to you. And everyone who says she is the reason
behind the break up of the Beatles get your facts straight John said
himself the beginning of the end was when Epstein passed away "NOT" Yoko

Peace and love are great things and john and yoko did some positive
things.As. a man of peace lennon had alot of great ideals,but i would
still kill chapman or anyone who killed my family or friends.And im a man
of peace.too. Why should she be expected tO forgive that pathetic puke c

When is Yoko Ono going to start a hunger strike or hold a candlelight
vigil, or god-knows-what, to call for the release of Mark David Chapman
whom she forgives with all her heart and urges others to likewise forgive
and to love, because all you need is love, if we just give peace a chance?
Hmm? Or is that just shit you say when you're trying to become famous? Yea,
yea, yea.

Author Patrick Benton (4 months)
I think its pretty bold not to forgive him after what Yoko Ono has put
people through with her "art"

Author bill martin (3 months)
No mark Chapman doesn't deserve forgiveness. Look what he took away from
the world.

Author TheInkinJapan (5 months)
She speaks quite well for an annoying tard. 

Author AlthoughNotAFollower (10 months)
A lot of people will always comment that she's crazy and whatnot to this
day. She's changed over the years and has mentioned forgiveness for Chapman
more in recent years. Doesn't seem too privy to it but isn't condemning the

And people could say she's crazy, and who knows, maybe that's true.

However, a civilized society doesn't fix a mentally ill person by letting
them sit in a jail cell for all these years. A civilized society practices
rehabilitation and believes in forgiveness.

From what I understand, if Chapman is released he was going to live on a
farm or something and presumably have the mental care he needs. We can be
civilized, it's in us, the capability.

Instead of saying things like "oh I'll forgive when I can [do x horrible
thing] to him", sit back and just think.

If you understand what compassion is, you'll know that even if you won't
forgive someone, you shouldn't harbor a violent hatred.

That's not what John would have wanted.

Author kevin McCarthy (10 months)
yoko and john ranted on about forgiveness for years. Going on about
forgiving prisoners in the attica riots situation...then when the shit hit
them....yoko becomes a unforgiving person

See, it's different when it happens to you Yoko. Yet in the early 1970's
both John and Yoko wanted people in prison to be let out for crimes.

John would tell you to your face that if you hate Yoko, you hate him. If
you disrespect Yoko, you disrespect him. That is exactly what he would say.

Author Robert Stotts (10 months)
john lennon could have had pretty much any female in the world any straight
dude could have ever dreamed of and he got with this dude?something is very
strange about that. some mind control going on there because before this
yuko dude got into the beatles jl seemed like he wasn't the kind to be told
shit.and this dude says he loves john forever but notice how he uses his
last name only now and not ono lennon like back when he stole jl from the hell did this dude get into the beatles ?very strange
stuff must have been going on. yuko hates you all!!!

I have read so much on him, its easy for anyone alive" to judge this man,
for the life he took away, but dead or alive, wherever John Lennon is he
forgave along time ago, he had compassion for everyone, he was a beautiful
person, i've never read anything good about Yoko, just that she wanted him
cremated as soon as possible" without autopsy due to religious beliefs, and
refused his sons requests to view his father's ashes, but you can't believe
everything you hear see or read.

only you Yoko can decide to forgive chapman! you are not a pope or a saint,
just a bereaved wife! like many bereft people! but the really sorrowful
part is that creature robbed you, and us all of a young man who had so much
yet to offer (40 ffs?) forgive him if you like but? he must remain in jail
till his death,(don't you think?) think of what John would have wanted if
he was here instead of you?(for the same reason, god forbid), then you can
make the right decision...

Author BRENDAJASON1 (1 year)
HUH? most likely it needs to be yoko asking the people to forgive her, goes
alot deeper than ol chapman whole lot deeper. Yes john loved her but he was
waking up there at the end you can hear it in some of his later interviews
the one with bbc 12-6-80

Yoko, as John, and the ideology they lived and died for [Yoko still being

i think yoko set it up so she can get his millions he made from the
beatles. she made him buy half of those apartments he stayed in new york..
i dont know who is weird..lennon or yoko?.. i think yoko wanted too leave
lennon and lennon would not let her leave..they did weird things
together..he only keepted her around because she was dumb and followed his
orders..but any ways..i think she wanted out or away from john..she actted
like she did not care about him..the way the media ask her questions about
john she acts like she dont say much.. i believe it was set up.. i believe
it was set up by yoko..yoko didnt make john fameous the beatles did..she is
the one that made him leave..and he said he was bored being with the
group?..what ever..the group made millions every how was he
bored?.. i believe he listend too yoko..some reason she brained washed him
until his death..he walked around new york thinking nothing well happen too
him because he was in the beatles and no one would hurt him..thats ok if
you want too walk around and have a free life with out body guards around
you and the guys around you..but people rememberd him being in the
beatles..yoko said nothing would hurt him no one would because of who he
was..they thought they would make better music together..yoko sucks her
singing sucks and still does..the only one who carries the torch is julian
lennon..sean is too much like yoko..julian is too much like john..even
thogh yoko made john stay away from julian. i find it strange before johns
death yoko said it was ok for john too start seeing julian..yup she
controled him big time..and i dont know what john saw in her?..he stayed in
the states just for her..and looked what happend he died..because of her..
i knew she did it.. she set it up..because she saw every thing and took off
running and john didnt know what was going you tell me that one?..

you know what I dont care what your opinions are of Yoko she was Johns wife
and respect that for gods sake, as far as forgiving Chapman I would put the
same gun he used to kill John with up his ass and say your NOT Forgiven and
pull the trigger on that low life piece of shit. Why should he live and
breath after what he did to John

George Harrison is proof? How does that even make sense? Something about
what he said or did could be proof. So ... what think that he said or did
makes you think it's proof of Yoko's breaking up of the band? (Aside:
personally, I note that the band was under tensions and John WITH Yoko as
an aside, brought the tensions to a head. Not that she was the source.)

Author Roger Waters (1 year)
she avoided the question cause she felt no remorse about John Yes I have to
agree all she cared about what His money but thats women for ya LOL
