One of the most legendary guitarists of all time, Metallica icon Kirk Hammett has shared a strange photo of himself via his verified and official Instagram account.

Kirk Hammett joined a presentation of their brand-new whiskey company called ‘Blackened’. He shared some photos from the event that he joined on Instagram.

But some fans have asked that if that promotion is all right while James Hetfield is struggling with alcohol addiction.

Here’s what he said:

“Thanks for having us, @blackenedamericanwhiskey! And thanks to the #metallicafamily who came by our bottle signing!

Always fun with @robtrujillo! At @totalwinecorpuschristi ⚡️🤘⚡️ @metallica 🥃 ‼️ 💥📸by @j.chavez_photography 📸💥.”

A fan named kzyborges commented:

“Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it.

How[a] narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it. Mathew 7.”

Another fan named ehakiel said that:

“James is in rehab while you are promoting whiskey 🤫 exactly my sense of
humor 😂.”
