The co-lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of KISS, Paul Stanley, recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and expressed his frustration towards the people who criticize him for being outspoken and speaking his mind on political issues.

Paul Stanley is one of the rockstars who are the most social on their social media accounts. Stanley often prefers to use his Twitter account to share his views on social and political issues which he considers important. Thus, it should not be surprising that the fact that he is so outspoken has led numerous people to criticize him both before and recently.

Recently, Paul Stanley posted a couple of political articles and expressed his views on the ongoing voter-fraud debate in the United States. While some people appreciated that an influential person like him has the courage to speak his mind, others told him to stick to music and stay away from politics. With his recent tweet, Paul Stanley made it clear that these negative comments will not stop him from sharing his views.

Stanley said that he voices his opinions ‘as a proud citizen of this country’ and that his profession has nothing to do with his right to speak freely. His message was firm but still kind which is something that only Paul Stanley could achieve. He said that even though there are people who want him to stay silent, that will not happen.

Here’s what Stanley said in his recent tweet:

“I voice my opinions as a proud citizen of this country that I love deeply. My profession shouldn’t disallow that as we all have that right so many have fought & died protecting. I also understand that the people who would like me to stay quiet are those who don’t share my views. Sorry.”
