Twisted Sister‘s iconic frontman Dee Snider responded to a fan’s tweet claiming he should also pay attention to the accounts with only a few followers and apologized to them for ‘follower shaming.’
The legendary vocalist Dee Snider has been using his social media accounts to express his personal opinions on various social and political subjects. Dee also responds to the claims of his fellow musicians and fans often via his official Twitter account.
As you might remember, a few days ago, Snider reacted to a statement made by Alice Cooper related to the musicians publicly expressing their thoughts on politics. In a 2018 interview, Cooper claimed the fact that famous musicians were talking publicly about which candidate the fans should vote for was actually an abuse of power.
Seeing a quote from Alice Cooper’s previous remarks, Dee Snider posted some tweets mentioning how disappointed he was to hear such things from someone whom he considered as a friend and a hero.
Although Cooper preferred to remain silent on the issue, his fans showed their reaction against the accusations of Dee Snider. In the comment section of Dee’s tweet, an Alice Cooper fan named David Gale wrote:
“Alice Cooper is the man sit down Dee.”
As a response, a Dee Snider fan named Andrew stated that this account had only a few followers, so they shouldn’t even take his opinions seriously. However, another Twitter user named Keith claimed that was not an accurate point of view since he also had a few followers and it didn’t mean his opinions weren’t important.
Twisted Sister icon joined the conversation and said that he actually agreed with Keith. Snider admitted he took some ‘cheap shots’ about followers and apologized to people who were exposed to ‘follower shaming’ by him before.
Here’s what Dee Snider stated in his response:
“I agree and apologize for some of the cheap shots I’ve taken about followers. It is not the point and should not be an issue. ‘Follower shaming’ isn’t cool. Again; my apologies to anyone I did that too.”
