Sad day today. Prayers to all the families. Gun Control!!!—
Vince Neil (@TheVinceNeil) December 14, 2012
Like many ghoulish celebs, in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre, Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil’s first thought was for the families of the victims … and how their devastation could help him push “Gun Control!!!”
After some Twitter followers took him to task for using the murder victims to prop up a gun-grabbing agenda, Neil lashed out at them for mentioning guns without the word “control” attached.
The brutally blunt Twitterverse reminded Neil that perhaps people who spent time in the big house for vehicular manslaughter and DUI shouldn’t throw stones.
Cars don’t kill people; drunk people like Vince Neil behind the wheel kill people. In 1984, Neil was sentenced to $2.5 million in restitution, community service and 30 days in jail after he lost control of his car while driving drunk. His friend, Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle, was killed in the crash.
Neil finished off his rant by letting people know that if they dare to give their children the gift of self-defense, they should go ahead and skip his shows.
Odd, we didn’t realize Neil was on tour. We wonder who he’s opening for.
Hey Vince, don’t go away mad (just go away).
