The co-lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of KISS, Paul Stanley, recently posted a series of tweets on his Twitter account considering the storming of the United States Capitol, and after receiving a lot of criticism considering his statements, he reacted to his followers by saying that he will never stop expressing his views.

As you know, Paul Stanley enjoys being active on his social media accounts. He often prefers to use his Twitter account to express his views on social and political matters which he considers important. However, being so vocal often leads to him receiving a lot of criticism and there have been multiple times in which he has made it clear that they will never succeed in their attempt to silence him.

The United States made it to the headlines of worldwide news after the shocking events that took place on January 6, 2021. Trump sympathizers who aimed to support the former president’s attempt to overturn his defeat against Joe Biden, stormed the United States Capitol in an attempt to prevent Congress from accepting Joe Biden’s win in the Electoral Colleges.

This event was highly criticized by numerous rockstars as these Trump supporters breached numerous police parameters, ransackedvandalizedand occupied parts of the building for hours. Paul Stanley recently posted a video of rioters physically attacking police officers in front of the Capitol building on his Twitter account. In his next tweet, Stanley said that we need to move on but not without punishing the people responsible for this barbaric ‘failed coup’ who also killed an officer with an American flag.

Following that, Stanley was once again told to stay away from politics and just make music. Paul Stanley didn’t stay silent against these criticisms which essentially repressed his freedom of speech, but instead stated that his aim is not to alienate people who don’t share his political views. Stanley went on to say that no matter what they say, he’s going to keep voicing his opinions because he has the right to do so.

Here’s what said in his first tweet upon receiving a lot of criticism for posting the rioters physically attacking police in front of the Capitol entrance:

“We Need To Move On… And while we do, we need to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law EVERYONE who initiated & participated in this failed coup. Those who trespassed on the grounds. Those who ransacked a federal building & those who killed an officer with an American flag.”

He went on to tweet:

“If You Are A Fan Who Now Feels My Opinions Are Alienating You, that is sadly your choice & not my intention. Do the entertainers you enjoy have to share your beliefs? Would you like it more if you didn’t know? In many cases, you’d be fooling yourself. I won’t do that to you or me.”
