Yoko Ono Tweets Photo Of John Lennon’s Bloody Glasses To Support Gun Control

Yoko Ono Tweets Photo Of John Lennon's Bloody Glasses To Support Gun ControlIn a show of support for gun control, Yoko Ono yesterday tweeted a photograph of the bloodied glasses her late husband John Lennon wore the day he was murdered.

‘Shot and killed’

Accompanying the photo was the message: “Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980.”

An activist for many causes – most recently drumming up support to stop fracking in New York – Ono turned her attention to gun violence with a series of tweets that all included the image, which she also used on the cover of her 1981 album Season of Glass.

‘War zone’

Another tweet read, “31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into a war zone.” And, more personally, “The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him.”

Yesterday also marked the 44th anniversary of Ono and Lennon’s wedding. In honor of the anniversary, Ono also tweeted, ”We decided that if we were going to do anything like get married that we would dedicate it to peace,” along with a link to her site ImaginePeace.com.

There she had posted a few photos from their wedding along with a 1971 interview the two gave to Rolling Stone, in which the couple talk about protesting for peace.

John Travolta Case: More Accusers On The Rise?

As evidence arises that may contradict one victim’s claims, other men have reached out to a lawyer who filed a lawsuit accusing actor John Travolta of sexual battery and harassment, the attorney tells PEOPLE.

Two masseurs listed only under the name John Doe accuse Travolta, 58, of improper behavior during massage sessions, according to the complaint filed in Los Angeles by the Pasadena-based attorney. Okorie Okorocha says the men “never wanted this attention” and “wanted to keep this discreet,” but a month of negotiations with Travolta’s attorneys went nowhere. “They left us with no other option but to file the lawsuit,” he says.

Travolta’s high-powered attorney Martin Singer, whose Hollywood A-list client list has included Charlie Sheen, Demi Moore, Nicolas Cage, Eddie Murphy and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among others, strongly denies the allegations, calling them “absurd and ridiculous.”

Singer provided PEOPLE a photograph and a Mr. Chow restaurant receipt that purportedly shows that Travolta was in New York on Jan. 16, 2012 – the day the first accuser claims he was assaulted while giving Travolta a massage in a Beverly Hills hotel. TMZ first reported on the photograph and restaurant receipt. And the restaurant’s manager confirms to PEOPLE: “Yes, Mr Travolta came in for dinner to Mr Chow Tribeca on Jan. 16, 2012.”

As for allegations by the second accuser that an assault took place during a massage in Atlanta, Singer says, “It is obvious that he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie.”

Maybe the accusers should finally reveal their true identities, if they are not fictitious characters at all — what do you think?
