“Dear Fucking Lunatic,” it begins. “At your recent press conference – more a word salad that had a stroke and fell down stairs, you were CLEARLY so out of your depth you needed scuba gear. Within minutes of going off air your minions were backpedaling faster than Cirque De Soliel acrobats… In India a week ago, I couldn’t get past the bit about your being the most popular visitor in the history of fucking India – a country of a BILLION human souls that’s only 3000 years old, give or take!!! Trust me – Gandhi pulled CROWDS… You pulled a cricket stadium and half WALKED out…
“Do you know how fucking insane you sound, you off-brand butt plug?” it continues. “That’s like the geopolitical equivalent of “that stripper really likes me” – only 10,000 times crazier and less self aware.”
Other comments and one-liners throughout the letter include, “Do you know how fucking insane you sound, you off-brand butt plug?” “Ninety-nine percent of everything you say is either false, crazy, incoherent, just plain cruel, or a rancid paella of all four,” and, “You are a fried dick sandwich with a side of schlongs.”

This open letter was shared extensively across Twitter over the weekend, with many users and celebrities attributing the post to Tommy. The likes of Sarah Silverman have since cleared up the miscredit, however, with the stand-up comedian writing that it is “fucking brilliant” but “not written by Tommy Lee”.
The actual author, Aldous J Pennyfarthing, has since taken to social media to add: “Yes, I’m the original author of the ‘Dear Fucking Lunatic’ letter. Not Tommy Lee. I simply don’t measure up to Tommy Lee. And here’s the book of the same name. Buy it, read it, enjoy the japery”:

So, while Tommy didn’t pen this brilliantly brutal open letter, he nevertheless brought it to the internet’s attention and gave us all a temporary distraction from the doom and gloom in the world right now. Excellent work!
