The talented drummer of Mötley Crüe, Tommy Lee has been stating his disapproval of President Donald Trump and his political actions on social media, and the interviews.
However, even though some of the Mötley Crüe fans support his opinions, there are some people who disagree with him. During a recent interview with Alternative Press, Tommy Lee answered questions about the reactions of the fans towards his remarks on Trump.
He mentioned that he was aware of the fact that he lost some of the Mötley Crüe fans’ support as a result of his attitude towards the President. Here’s what Tommy stated during the interview regarding the issue of his fans’ reactions:
“You know what? I get it. Mötley fans range from all kinds of colors, types, races. There’s also a bunch of Trump-supporting fans. I don’t know why, but there are a lot of them. And I’m not allowed to have an opinion, because I get told by fans, ‘Shut the fuck up and just stick behind the drums’?
That irked the fuck out of me. I’m like, ‘Hold on a second. I can’t say how I feel about this fucking guy? I can’t say how I think he’s just fucking wrecking everything he touches? I just need to shut the fuck up and stick to playing drums?'”
Furthermore, Tommy Lee mentioned that there was also a positive side of showing his reaction against Trump:
“I’m sure that me personally, I’ve lost some fans. And you know what? On the flip side of that, I probably gained some. It’s a weird thing to talk about. But, you know, at the end of the day, it’s just a fuckin’ opinion. People just cannot take it.
You take it, keep it moving or fucking unfollow. I don’t know what else to say. Am I supposed to say nothing? I mean, that’s why we’re in the situation we’re in now. So many people don’t speak up.”
