Staind’s Aaron Lewis Faces Backlash After Killing 32 Coyotes For Donald Trump

Aaron Lewis received backlash after sharing a picture on Instagram, showing he’d killed thirty-two coyotes during a recent hunt in Texas and used the animals’ dead bodies to write ‘Trump 24′ on the ground.

Lewis’ caption followed:

“Successful morning in Texas!”

After the post, PETA slammed the Staind frontman by calling him out in a statement to Billboard. The organization’s senior vice president Lisa Lange said:

“How vile and pathetic that a washed-up musician, desperate for relevance, terrorized and killed animals to get a brief taste of the attention he obviously craves.”

She further added, inviting the frontman to ‘seek attention through kindness:’

“PETA encourages Aaron Lewis to seek attention through some act of kindness, rather than slaughtering individuals who are simply trying to eke out an existence in an increasingly paved-over world.”

However, it seemed that not only PETA but some Staind fans were also not happy with the picture. One fan wrote on Facebook:

“I’m a huge fan, Aaron, and you were incredibly kind when we met. But I can’t with this…”

Another one commented:

“Lost another fan.”
