Rocker Jesse Hughes slams march protests
Eagles of DeathMetal singer Jesse Hughes took to Instagram to express his disgust for the March for Our Lives protest. Hughes and his band were on stage at the Bataclan music venue in Paris the night in 2015 when terrorists stormed in and killed 89 people. “As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action,” he wrote. “Long live rock and roll,” he added. “And may everyone of these disgusting vile abusers of the dead live as long as possible so they can have the maximum amount of time to endure their shame.” Hughes posted again not apologizing but expressing regret for mixing politics with music and said he’d start a separate Instragram for his “political beliefs.”
