Gene Simmons to Critics of the Devil Horns Controversy: “Bitch, I Can Do Anything I Want”

A few months back KISS bassist Gene Simmons attempted to trademark the iconic “devil horns” hand gesture that’s become commonplace in the rock community. After public outrage for the greedy play, he backed down, abandoned the application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. While the public scrutiny obviously got under his skin, he’s now pretending he gives no shits, telling the Windsor Star, “I regret nothing. Wake up every morning and let your conscience be your guide.”

He doubles down, adding insult to injury:

“People said, ‘You can’t do that.’ Actually, bitch — I can. I can do anything I want to do.”

“Did you know I own the money bag logo? The dollar sign with the bag of money,” he boasts. “I own all kinds of things. I own ‘motion pictures’ as a trademark. Anyone who thinks that’s silly — the silliest thing I’ve ever done is wear more makeup and higher heels than your mommy.”

Shame is one of the things thing that separates people. Simmons has shown through the years that he’ll do anything for a dollar, no matter who he hurts in the process. That’s not the kind of person I want to be around…
