David Bowie’s Most Memorable Moments

David Bowie’s son appeared at Russia Today for quoting his late father.

Duncan Jones, 50, took to Twitter after the state-backed Russian broadcaster tweeted a story about NASA with the caption ‘Ground control for Major Tom’.

In response, music legend Bowie’s unimpressed son made a ‘perfect comeback’ as he asserted his support for Ukraine amid Russia’s aggression.

He also posted an image of poignant lyrics from another Bowie classic Heroes, first released in 1977.

Bowie’s son has been widely praised for his impressive comeback as Twitter users thanked him for standing with the Ukrainian people amid the current crisis in Kyiv.

“Well if it’s not the perfect comeback,” replied one impressed fan.

“You tell them Duncan. I like this answer. Your dad would be so proud,” another repeated.

Duncan’s tweet was complimented by Bowie fans around the globe



“This has always been my favorite of your dad’s many excellent songs, for personal reasons, very emotional. It has never meant more to me. #GloryToUkraine” someone else tweeted.

Fourth sentence: “This tweet is the tweet of the decade.”

Meanwhile, another Bowie fan exclaimed: “I know if your dad were here he would say the same thing. Congratulations Duncan.”

Duncan’s tweet comes after media regulator Ofcom began 15 investigations into RT’s ‘reasonable fairness’ on Monday.

The move, which raises the possibility of RT losing its UK license, involves 15 editions of the hourly news show airing on Sundays.

The EU has banned the channel but Foreign Secretary Liz Truss warned a similar move in the UK could potentially lead to the BBC being banned in Russia.

“We want the Russian people to hear the truth about what Putin is doing.”

RT, which features a number of British presenters and reporters, reported that the invasion of Ukraine was a ‘special military operation’.

Mirror has reached out to an RT spokesperson for comment on this story.
