Former Mötley Crüe frontman John Corabi shared a news article’s headline on Instagram to deny the claims about him. Also, he targeted the way he was portrayed in the band’s biopic, ‘The Dirt.’
As you probably know, Corabi joined Mötley Crüe as their new lead singer in 1992 after Vince Neil’s departure from the band. He was the voice behind the band’s self-titled album and EP named ‘Quaternary.’ However, the band couldn’t gain commercial success, and the label company forced them to reunite with Vince Neil in 1997.
Although John replaced Neil in Mötley Crüe, he didn’t get much screen time in the band’s autobiographical movie entitled ‘The Dirt,’ which was released on March 22, 2019, starring Douglas Booth, Colson Baker, Daniel Webber, and Iwan Rheon.
Also, Corabi’s character was played by Anthony Vincent Valbiro, who barely had any lines and was just standing there smiling. Thus, John posted an article about the movie and criticized this scene by calling it ‘incredibly stupid.’ He also expressed his anger towards Nikki Sixx’s words about his lack of songwriting skills. Corabi advised his fans not to be fooled by shitty clickbait headlines.
Corabi’s IG post read:
“After my incredibly stupid portrayal in ‘The Dirt Movie,’ and the ludicrous shitty statements of one of the band members in regards to my contributions and lack of writing talents, yours truly is not even remotely interested in doing that again…
Don’t buy into the ‘Clickbait Bullshit.’ I wish Tommy, Nikki, Mick, and Vince the best on their tour and their future endeavors!
