Gene Simmons has been putting his Dragon Boot foot in his mouth a lot this week, be it on Huffington Post and his remarks about immigrants learning English, along with what could be construed as a racist comment when he used the word "Wasssup" in describing black culture in making his point about who succeeds and who doesn't (Proper English Vs. Slang). And now Gene is backtracking in another public fiasco with his remarks about those that are depressed to 'kill themselves'. If Gene keeps this up, more of the public at large is really going to start getting on his ass and that's going to open the floodgates and knowing how he responds, this could be a full-on meltdown. It all started with his feud with thos behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is still p*ssed about it and he hasn't shut up about that either.

Yea... There are lines that should not be crossed.

Not sure what drives people to not censor their thoughts.

Gotta agree, Gene, unfortunately has a lot of influence, especially over young impressionable kids. One of the rare times I think someone should have censored themselves.

Quote
As the storm surrounding Gene Simmons‘ recent controversial comments about suicide grows to include radio station boycotts of his band’s music, the Kiss star has issued a new statement declaring that he “deeply” supports those who suffer from depression.

Triple M broadcasting, owner of five metropolitan radio stations across Australia, has banned Kiss following the explosive comments by Simmons on depression and suicide that they’ve dubbed “misguided and insensitive.” Albany, New York’s longtime WPYX DJ Uncle Vito has also vowed not to play Kiss music, labeling Simmons “an arrogant, unfeeling a—hole.”

These “are not topics he should be using to further his notoriety or sell records,” Triple M network head Mike Fitzpatrick says in a statement. “His desperation to use mental health issues to find relevancy in a modern age is sickening. I can only put it down to a brain fade on his part.”

The furor started when Simmons, in response to a question about his relationship with former Kiss bandmates, went off on a tangent concerning depressed and suicidal people. “For a putz, 20-year-old kid to say, ‘I’m depressed, I live in Seattle,’” Simmons concluded. “F– you, then kill yourself.”

An outraged Fitzpatrick, while calling Simmons a “d–head,” is now encouraging other radio programmers in Australia and North America to similarly stop playing Kiss music.

WPYX Triple M, which broadcasts in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, aren’t the only ones taking Simmons to task, either. Nikki Sixx took time on his radio show this week to criticize Simmons and encourage those suffering not to “listen to people who don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Simmons has responded to all this backlash on his Facebook page with the following message:
Depression is very serious and very sad when it happens to anyone, especially loved ones.

I have not commented on various allegations made in the media, but I want to make this statement for the record and to clarify.

I deeply support and am empathetic to anyone suffering from any disease, especially depression.
I have never sugarcoated my feelings regarding drug use and alcoholics.

Somewhere along the line, my intentions in speaking very directly and perhaps politically-incorrectly about drug use and alcoholics have been misconstrued as vile commentary on depression.
Unkind statements about depression was certainly never my intention.

And I do not intend to defend myself here and now by listing the myriad charities and self-help organizations I am involved with.

This is not about me. This is about clearing up misconceptions and being clear. My heart goes out to anyone suffering from depression.

Update 8/15 9:45PM ET – Simmons has now posted a more detailed apology on the official Kiss Facebook page:
I want to make this statement about my views on depression for the record and to clarify my prior remarks.
To the extent my comments reported by the media speak of depression, I was wrong and in the spur of the moment made remarks that in hindsight were made without regard for those who truly suffer the struggles of depression. I sincerely apologize to those who were offended by my comments. I recognize that depression is very serious and very sad when it happens to anyone, especially loved ones. I deeply support and am empathetic to anyone suffering from any disease, especially depression.
I have never sugarcoated my feelings regarding drug use and alcoholics. Somewhere along the line, my intention of speaking in very directly and perhaps politically incorrectly about drug use and alcoholics has been misconstrued as vile commentary on depression. Unkind statements about depression was certainly never my intention. Fully, you will know that and I do not intend to defend myself here and now, by listing the myriad charities and self-help organizations I am involved with. Rather, I simply want to be clear that my heart goes out to anyone suffering from depression and I deeply regret any offhand remarks in the heat of an interview that might have suggested otherwise.

Ray Rice -- ELEVATOR KNOCKOUT ... Fiancee Takes Crushing Punch

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbwTMJroTbI


Up till today, we have only seen the aftermath of the knockout, which led to a weak-ass 2 game suspension of the NFL player. It was and still is a joke that the NFL can only muster up such a soft penalty for such a brutal act of violence. Even substance abuse by players nets them a far stiffer penalty. Well, after the release of this full video today, he is no longer employed in the NFL. Normally I'd say this was a cause for celebration. But the fact of the matter is that both the NFL and Baltimore Ravens are just trying to get ahead of this due to the overwhelming backlash they got for the 2 gamer. Their decision has nothing to do with doing the right thing and everything to do with managing their public image.

I won't call Janay a douche, but definitely something wrong here defending her husband. Good luck with that.

'This Is Our Life!': Janay Rice Breaks Silence to Defend Husband, Criticize the Media

Quote
NFL star Ray Rice has been released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of disturbing surveillance footage from an Atlantic City hotel elevator that shows Rice punching his then-fiance Janay Palmer in the face.

Janay Rice, who is now Rice's wife, has responded, lashing out at the media on Instagram.

"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it's reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted [opinions] from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don't you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you've succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!"

Earlier on America's Newsroom, Jonathan Hunt reported the latest on the outcry against the NFL.

I will NEVER understand the mindset of battered women that continually make excuses for and stand by their abusive husbands or boyfriends.

I've never seen anything like that. Guess I haven't been to 'one' of those concerts.

They are epic and applaud the holds barred on calling people out.

Okay, no one here is a celebrity, but this meltdown is so EPIC, that it naturally belongs in this thread.

EPIC!!!!!!!!

It's so EPIC, that it can't be real. It has to be staged. The ending is some funny sh*t when the kid filiming the entire thing turns the camera on himself and says.........
