Stormzy pledged his support for Jeremy Corbyn when he was Labour leader, saying he was the “first man in a position of power who is committed to giving the power back”.
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, he said it was “really disheartening” to see how Corbyn was vilified at the time by the media.
“I just thought so highly of him and I still think so highly of him and I think, Well if they can make him out to be a pagan then things are worse than I thought,” he said.
“I mean if he’s the villain in the grand scheme of things, then shit’s madder than I ever thought because whatever your politics or your policies, that’s one thing. But in terms of his intentions they were 100 per cent for good. I mean, if we’re talking about superheroes against evil villains, I know he was for good. And the way people spun it, I just thought, ‘Wow, this is scary’.”
