Dee Snider Reacts To Gene Simmons’ Statement About Not Sharing Opinions On Politics
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider shared a post on his official Twitter page expressing his opinion about KISS bassist Gene Simmons’ latest posts on his official Twitter page in which he openly speaks about the current political issues in addition to an old interview in which Simmons’ opinions are quite opposite of his recent actions.
As many of you know, Gene Simmons has been sharing posts on his official Twitter page frequently about the recent political environment. While some appreciate the fact that he openly speaks his mind, some keep sharing posts on Twitter in order to express their discomfort by stating that Simmons should not be involved with politics this often.
After seeing an article which was about Simmons standing up against those who believe the allegations of voter fraud, Dee Snider shared a post on his official Twitter page and stressed the fact that Gene Simmons is a brave rockstar who is always on the side of the truth.
Here is what Snider said:
“ANOTHER BRAVE ROCKER STANDING UP FOR TRUTH! Thanks you Gene Simmons. You can’t play it safe at times like these! GENE SIMMONS Spars With His Twitter Followers Over Allegations Of Voter Fraud In 2020 Election.”
After Snider’s post, a fan shared an old interview of Gene Simmons back in 2016 in which he reveals that celebrities should not openly speak their opinions when it comes to political matters, especially about the outcomes of that year’s presidential election, and the fan stated that Simmons was right saying this.
Here is what Simmons said:
“In December 1026, Simmons, a former contestant on Trump’s ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ show, told TMZ that celebrities should keep their political opinions to themselves, especially when it comes to the results of that year’s presidential election.
‘Why does anybody give a squat what a guy in a band thinks about to anything like that?’ he said. ‘The last thing I wanna do is to ask President Obama what he thinks about Led Zeppelin.'”
After seeing the tweet by that fan, Dee Snider shared another post on his official Twitter page stating that everybody has the right to express their opinions due to the fact that they all are citizens of the United States therefore they are no different than others.
Here is what Snider said:
“In what what way? Should we not be able to express ourselves as citizens? Everybody else does. Why are we different? I’m not saying I’m a celebrity listen to me. I’m saying I’M DEE FUCKING SNIDER AND I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY! It’s your choice whether you listen to me or not.”
