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…

    Pretty sure he owns the title “douchebag” too.

    Simmons is just a piece of human garbage. The things he said about poor people and people with depression are inexcusable. For all I care, he can have a patent on breathing, if it makes him happy. He’s a traitor to everything his music once stood for. Instead of King Diamond and Ronny James Dio, Simmons should have died.

      King Diamond is alive and well and working on a new album. Just had his first kid at 61 years old, in fact. Just saw him on the Abigail tour last December. But yes, I DEFINITELY wish we had Ronnie Dio back and could be rid of Simmons.

        What?! Holy shit, I read he died in two different articles and was convinced it was true.

  • Chase LeValley

    What a pompous retarded fucking shit clown.

  • Vader the White

    What an asshole.

  • Darren Kerr

    Will someone do the world a favour and shoot this fucking cunt?

  • Elizabeth

    … Is he getting senile?

  • Gregg McGlasson

    As if I needed another reason to not care about KISS anymore.

  • LivingDeadMan

    He truly is a cunt of the highest order.

  • Jérémy Kuprowski

    You didn’t even invent it, nor did you make it popular.

    Just let yourself be forgotten, dickhead.

  • Edgar Pinecone

    The dollar-sign bag of money and the phrase “motion pictures”…even if that’s true, who gives a shit? What an utterly pointless boast.

  • Anything? Do five situps…

  • Runciter

    He is almost right.
    Sure he can try to do anything.
    So can the people who want to stop this pathetic bag of offals from doing so.
    That’s how it works, yes.
