Axl Rose Calls Donald Trump “A Truly Bad, Repulsive Excuse For A Person”
It’s no secret that Axl Rose isn’t a fan of Donald Trump, having previously tweeted how the president “will stop at nothing for power, feeding off the anger and resentment his sows 24/7 while constantly whining how whatever doesn’t go his way is unfair”. And now, the Guns N’ Roses frontman has called Trump out again – this time, for his comments towards the media regarding the protests that have followed George Floyd’s death last Monday.
With Trump taking to Twitter to post that the “Lamestream Media is doing everything within their power to foment hatred and anarchy”, Axl quickly hit back and pointed it back in the president’s direction.
“Lamestream media ISN’T doing everything within their power 2 foment hatred n’ anarchy, that’s U!” Axl said. “As long as we get what Ur doing, that Ur FAKE NEWS n’ a truly bad, repulsive excuse 4 a person w/a sick agenda, we can work past U w/whatever it takes 2 a better, stronger future!!”
And he wasn’t the only rockstar to criticise Trump over this entire situation.
“A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person,” wrote System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian on Instagram. “But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you’ve realized they are not your people as you are not really our President. These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come. You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK? The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US and elsewhere in the world. Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come.”
Queen’s Adam Lambert also took to social media to call the president “a complete joke, a liability, a liar and a cancer”.
