In an interview with RockSverige, SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt spoke about the inspiration for the “Kill The Kardashians” t-shirt he started wearing in 2015.
He says: “It was made by a friend of mine, Jack. [It was] put together just because he knows my deep, bitter, black hatred of them. It’s like… I don’t begrudge them for their money, I just f*cking hate people that are becoming superstars for doing nothing. Kim Kardashian was a closet organizer and then she did a sex tape and became famous for it and now they stick their name on products and I hate their guts. So my friend Jack actually made the shirt for me first and then we decided to start our own little merch company No Love Apparel and sold them and it became like a huge viral thing.”
He continued: “What was this guy’s name? Some Internet star, another one of those kinda people I hate. An Instagram star who’s famous for hanging out in places where famous people are. They call him the something ‘Jew’ or something [The Fat Jew]. I saw him on some reality show even once like ‘The Real Housewives Of Orange County’ or something. He was at some party. He posted the little dual photo of me wearing the shirt and one of the Jenners wearing a SLAYER shirt and the sh*t went viral from there.”
Holt added: “I haven’t worn them onstage for a while just because I was wearing it every night for a while, but I’ll bring it back. Maybe I’ll have to get a little more personal. Like, I left Bruce Jenner alone because I’m all for sexual identity freedom and someone said, ‘You should do one like that!’ and I said no, because I have nothing against the trans community or gay and lesbian people. I’m all for personal freedom and whatever nature meant you to be is who you are, so I left him alone even though I wanna f*ck with him because there’s a f*cking Republican who voted for Trump who wants to take away all of his own rights, except Caitlyn Jenner is wealthy enough to where none of it affects her. So, yeah, ‘You can vote for Trump. You’ve got all the money in the world. Your very own people are the ones that are gonna be hurt by it.’ But yeah, I left him alone. The rest of the family and Kanye West are fodder enough. F*cking hate their guts.”
