Gene Simmons Reaches A Compromise With A Fan After A Heated Argument About His ‘One-Sided’ Posts

KISS bassist and co-lead singer Gene Simmons responded to a fan on Twitter who criticized his ‘biased‘ tweets and ended up having an exemplary and respectful argument which was appreciated by all of his fans.

As you may know, KISS icon Gene Simmons has been using his social media accounts to express his opinions about certain political and social issues in the United States. Even though he often faces the reaction of some of his fans, Gene has never hesitated to support what he believes is right.

Recently, a fan on Twitter reacted to Simmons’ usual posts with which he often shares the news articles without commenting on them. The fan claimed that Gene was the antithesis of being objective and fair since he has been sharing the news articles from certain sources only. In his response to the fan, Simmons stated that his fan doesn’t know him well enough to make a judgment about his personality. He also added that he was simply sharing the news without any comment and that is quite an impartial behaviour according to his point of view.

Here’s what the fan stated about Gene Simmons’ tweets:

“He is right. You seem to be the antithesis of ‘evenhanded’ or fair. Surprises me that you aren’t more discerning.”

To which Gene responded:

“NC, you don’t know me. I don’t agree with your assessment. But that’s OK. I’m actually simply reporting the news, without comment. You don’t know how I feel about it…’Do not judge, lest ye be judged.'”

Furthermore, the argument got even more heated when the fan stated that Gene Simmons was only sharing one perspective about what has been happening in the social and political scene of the United States. He added that he would like to encourage Gene to ‘look beyond the safe spaces‘ he often gets his news. As he responded to the fan’s criticism about his ‘one-sided’ posts, the KISS icon urged his fan to tell him the safe places that he should get informed news since apparently he is even more educated and informed than Gene himself.

Here’s what the fan added about the sources Simmons often gets the news:

“No judgment, Mr. Simmons. I said it was one-sided. You give one perspective. That’s not judgment, that’s observation. I’d encourage you to look beyond the safe spaces you get your news.”

To which Gene reacted harshly:

“I can’t wait for you to tell me where the safe places are to get informed news. You seem much more well-read and informed than I am.”

Although the argument between the fan and Simmons escalated quickly, they also resolved it quite easily when the fan changed his tone to a bit more understanding one. The fan stated that he wasn’t trying to underestimate Gene’s intelligence and admitted that he had a valid point since there are no safe spaces to receive the news. The iconic musician responded to the fan’s tweet by simply accepting that he agreed with his statement about the difficulty of finding a reliable source.

Here is what the KISS fans stated in his tweet to reach a compromise with Gene:

“I’m absolutely not. And you have a point, a valid one. There are no safe spaces anymore and news, left nor right, can let be trusted. However, I do try to find conflicting news then I dive deeper to find the truth. (Try to, at least)”

Simmons simply wrote:

NC, I agree.”
