Cee Lo Green came under fire from John Lennon fans on Twitter after tweaking the lyrics to the song “Imagine” during his New Year’s Eve performance.

From the Huffington Post:

Charged with singing Lennon’s famous solo-era tune on NBC’s New Year’s Eve show shortly before the ball dropped in Times Square , Green changed the lyrics from “Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too” to “Nothing to kill or die for, And all religion’s true.”

The change didn’t go unnoticed, and to preempt criticism, he soon tweeted, “Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that’s all.”

That apparently didn’t mollify angry Lennon (and “no religion”) fans, who kept up the Twitter fire.
