Beware, haters: "Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase."

On the day the album was released, Bono wrote: "For the people out there who have no interest in checking us out, look at it this way… the blood, sweat and tears of some Irish guys are in your junk mail."

That didn't make everyone feel better, though. This Instagram from one of the 500 million iTunes users in 119 countries who got the album was captioned: "LEAVE ME ALONE"

"It’s a gift from Apple. If someone doesn’t like the gift, they should delete it," manager Guy Oseary told Mashable. "There are people who are going to be thrilled to get a gift. There are people who are not going to care to have this gift. We knew all of that going in... We just want to share it with as many people as possible. If you don’t want it and you don’t need it, delete it."
