Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal, survivor of the concert shooting in Paris at the Bataclan in November 2015, has criticized the March For Our Lives protest against gun violence in the United States.
He called the march “pathetic and disgusting”, and accuses the Parkland survivors of “exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention”.
His series Instagram posts ended with: “Long Live Rock’n’Roll….. 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….and be Cursed.” He has since deleted some of the posts.
Here’s some reactions from Twitter:
One thing everybody overlooked regarding Jesse Hughes’ disgusting Instagram post, where he called Parkland shooting survivors “pathetic”, is the guy doesn’t know the difference between a comma and an ellipsis. He’s not just a douche, he’s a full-on village idiot.
