Amanda Knox did the weirdest thing on the Ray D'Arcy Show last night
This was the last thing people expected to see.
Amanda Knox appeared on The Ray D'Arcy Show last night. She spoke about her time in prison, her perception in the media and how she was eventually acquitted of the murder of her housemate Meredith.
She famously made headlines all over the world when she, and her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, were wrongfully convicted of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Puglia in Italy in 2007. She spent four years in an Italian prison until she was acquitted of the crime in 2011.
While on the show, she told Ray that she received lots of support from Irish people when she was in prison.
“My world collapsed. I didn’t realise that the world was so unfair. That was not something that I grew up with. That was something that a lot of Irish supporters of mine felt.”
I got letters from lots of Irish people who really understood, like, of course, authority taking advantage of a vulnerable person and spinning it in a bad way, of course, we know that.
They sent me Irish rebel songs and everything."
After Ray asked her to clarify which songs they sent her, she broke into song, singing, 'Come out ye Black and Tans':
"They sent me this CD of the 50 most popular ones. You know, there’s like you know ‘come out you Black and Tans and fight me like a man’."
Ray D'Arcy just replied, "That's the oddest thing I've ever witnessed."
And it's just as odd as you can imagine.
