PAUL STANLEY And GENE SIMMONS Blast Anti-Maskers: ‘Wake Up’ And ‘Mask Up’

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons

KISS frontman Paul Stanley and bassist Gene Simmons took to social media to once again blast people who are defiantly skeptical of mask wearing.

Stanley wrote on Twitter: “Frankly, I’ve had enough of the self-serving & politically motivated mask misinformation & BS about this pandemic. I don’t want to hear about ‘my freedom’ & ‘my rights’ that then infringe on so many other’s. Those ‘rights’ & choosing to gather at Thanksgiving got us here. Wake up.”

Simmons concurred, tweeting out a photo of him and fellow musicians wearing masks as they arrived in Dubai ahead of their New Year’s concert there. He wrote: “Wear your masks. Even if it’s only as a courtesy. If you yawn, or sneeze, you don’t think twice about covering your mouth. Do the rest of us a favor! Mask Up! ..Besides, it looks cool.”

Back in September, Stanley took to his Twitter to share a CNN article about an Idaho pastor who was hospitalized with COVID-19 after calling himself a “no-masker” during a service and repeatedly questioning the veracity of coronavirus case reporting. 

Stanley wrote along with the article: “YOU figure this one out. I can’t. A hoax and non-existent virus has put this guy in the ICU. If you’re so concerned with a loss of your freedom , Why do you stop at red lights? Don’t let the government control you!! Drive right through!!! PUT YOUR MASK ON.”
