In October of 1992, Sinead O'Connor appeared on Saturday Night Live. In one of her two musical performances she sang Bob Marley's "War" a cappella. When she sang the word "evil," she held up a photo of Pope John Paul II.

Then she tore the photo as she sang "fight the real enemy." The act was meant as a protest against child abuse within the Catholic Church. Soon after, she appeared at a Bob Dylan tribute concert.

The story was recounted in full detail.

And then, Kris Kristofferson got involved.

Kristofferson even wrote a song entitled "Sister Sinead" that appeared on a 2009 album.

The song can be heard below along with video of Kristofferson and O'Connor's interaction.

Kristofferson continued to hold space for O'Connor despite the jeers from the crowd.

People were grateful to know the story.

Nearly a decade after O'Connor's performance, Pope John Paul II finally came out and apologized for the abuse that the Catholic Church had perpetuated for decades.

Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
