I think we're missing a bit in translation. Even reading the English version I'm not sure why people are offended. His use of the word sad is clearly not meant to be perjorative. He says it's going well and he's acclimatising. It's, what, 4 paragraphs to sum up how he's doing? I think we can cut him some slack given the change in environment, language, etc.

Liverpool is a wonderful city though!
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

It's 2019, the bar for outrage is low indeed.
"Heís a thread killer. Like the threads are technically active but he seems to suck the life out of them. Heís high maintenance and I think my type of personality is massively turned off by that sort of annoying antics."

These past few years have certainly become something of a fun vacuum, haven't they?

Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness - what an album.

They only come out at night, ey Lou.

Or in this case, the day.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Sidibe has certainly sparked a lot further discussion in this thread from opinions regard the city of Liverpool and subtleties to subtleties of the French language

Iím not from Liverpool, but I do love the city. I can understand why people from the city may take the ďsadĒ comment the wrong way. I see it as an empathetic comment, and certainly not a critique: heís showing an understanding of the cityís history. Thatís how I took it anyway.

Lads, lads chill. Your City is fantastic and I love visiting - but we all get a bit defensive about our home towns when thereís a perceived slight.

Donít think Sidibe was meaning to offend
