Gene Simmons has always been controversial but there is a line you dont cross. And Gene walked right past that line!
Last month the rocker told Songfacts.com:
For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, ‘I’m depressed. I live in Seattle.’ Fuck you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I’m the guy who says ‘Jump’ when there’s a guy on top of a building who says, ‘That’s it, I can’t take it anymore. I’m going to jump.’ Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fuck up, have some dignity and jump! You’ve got the crowd.
“By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, ‘I’m going to blow your fuckin’ head off.’ He’ll go, ‘Please don’t.’ It’s true. He’s not that insane.”
So, needless to say, a lot of people are shocked by Simmons’ comments.
Even fans have disowned him.
Although he did make the comments two weeks before Williams’ death, and he tweeted this when he heard the sad news.
But even that didn’t impress some people, who were quick to point out the meaning of his words.
Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx has criticised the rocker, too.
