Backlash against Adele song seen in mid-west

A poster was seen popping up across the mid-west late Thursday that apparently decries pop star Adele’s song Set Fire to the Rain.

In a statement released Tuesday evening, the National Farmers Guild said, “While we appreciate that Adele must have went through a really bad breakup to create such a disturbing song, we cannot endorse the song’s message as it would have a detrimental effect on crop production across the U.S.”

The poster was made through a collaboration between the National Farmers Guild, the John Deere tractor company, the National Farmers Union, the National Farmers Market Association and the Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance.

A spokesperson for Adele could not be reached for comment.

This poster was seen in supermarkets and bingo halls across the mid-west on Thursday.
