“You’re Beautiful” singer James Blunt lived up to his surname on Friday, when he took down a troll with a single sentence.
The interaction came after Blunt – real name James Blount – showed off his three vaccination cards, pointing out that he had received a dose of all three major jabs: Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna.
“Guys, the government are giving away free drugs, and I am trying ALL of them,” he wrote.
While many praised the star for protecting himself against coronavirus – and his rare “combo” – one Twitter user named ‘Marko’ wasn’t too pleased to see the musician vaxxed.
“This tweet won’t age well,” he said, rounding off the tweet with a facepalm emoji.
Blunt, who has garnered some newfound popularity in recent years for his witty tweets, proved he was certainly one of many “Wisemen” in his reply, simply writing back: “And neither will you”.

We would embed the full interaction here, but in a clear sign that you’ve been annihilated by one of the noughties’ biggest stars, ‘Marko’ has since made his account private on Twitter, so we’ve only got a screenshot.
