Gene Simmons calls anti-vaccines “bad”


Gene Simmons sharply criticized anti-vaccines, calling them “bad guys” and “enemies”.

The bassist and co-founder of Kiss was a guest on TalkShopLive, promoting deluxe versions of his band’s 45th anniversary edition. Destructive. When the topic turned to Kiss’s recent Kiss Kruise, Simmons couldn’t help but mention COVID-19.

“[It was] really a great time, ”noted the rocker of the Kruise. “Unfortunately our European friends and other friends all over the world – I prefer ‘friends’ over ‘fans’ because it really has become a kind of family – couldn’t come on a cruise so easily because you had to have been vaccinated. “

From there, Simmons embarked on his rant against the anti-vaxxers.

“I don’t care about your political beliefs. You are not allowed to infect anyone just because you think you have rights that are illusory,” he said. “You don’t have the right to go through a red light, in fact the government has the right to tell you to stop. You have to put on a seat belt. If they tell you you can’t smoke in a building, you can’t smoke in a building. And it’s not because they want to take away your rights, it’s because the rest of us hate it. We don’t want to smell your smoke. I don’t want to catch your disease I don’t want to risk my life just because you want to go through a red light.

“This whole idea, this crazy, evil idea that you can do whatever you want and the rest of the world be damned is really terrible,” continued the bassist from Kiss. “You need to identify these people and bring them out into the open, so you know who they are. Know who your friends are and how much they care about you. This includes COVID. If you’re up to it. walk among us without being vaccinated, you are an enemy. “

From there, Simmons denounced conspiracy theorists who argue that the facts and figures surrounding the pandemic are made up.

“For those who don’t believe this to be real, over five million humans have died from COVID. I know there are people in the Flat Earth Society who believe in all kinds of things. [who say] they died because they were fat or because they were smoking. No, bitch, they died because they got COVID. And there’s still a lot of people that don’t believe it, and you’ve got to find out who these people are. “

“I don’t care if you play football or not,” the rocker concluded, apparently referring to controversial NFL star Aaron Rogers. “Stay away from evil people who don’t care about your health.”

This isn’t the first time Simmons has voiced his opinion on anti-vaccines. “I’m not worried if an idiot catches COVID and dies,” the iconic musician told UCR in August. “” I’m afraid he’s taking other people with him. Who did not have a choice. “

Later that month, Simmons and his groupmate Paul Stanley each contracted COVID-19 despite having been fully vaccinated. Kiss postponed a handful of shows at that time, but resumed touring in September.
