Sting rips ‘coward’ world leaders for refugee crisis

Sorry, Sting. Bono already has this job.

The “Shape of My Heart” singer tried to show how much his heart bleeds for refugees Saturday while speaking at an Amnesty International Event in Athens.

He called world leaders “a sad parade of half-men and cowards” for their failure to solve the refugee crisis.

The former frontman for The Police also called President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy “brutal” and “barbaric.”

Amid an international outcry, Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order ending his policy of separating migrant children from their parents caught trying to enter the US illegally. More than 2,000 children are reportedly still spread across the US and have yet to be reunited with their families.

Sting, whose real name is Gordon Sumner, lauded Greece for aiding over a million refugees who have passed through in recent years, according to the European Commission.

“Thank God for Greece because you have shown the way,” he said. “You have shown how to treat refugees when other people are building walls. When children are being taken from their mothers and put in cages, you are acting with compassion.”

His comments come a day before European Union leaders were expected to meet on the European Union’s own migration crisis.
