Eagles Of Death Metal Singer Jesse Hughes Calls Parkland Survivors Pathetic

A rock musician who survived a terrorist attack says the Florida school shooting survivors who called for gun control during the March for Our Lives in Washington are "pathetic." 

In a series of Instagram posts that were later deleted, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes said survivors of last month’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were “vile abusers of the dead,” and claimed they were “exploiting” the deaths of their fellow students with their demonstrations and media appearances. 

“When the truth don’t line up with your bulls**t narrative just hold your breath and stamp your feet and refused to except it,” Hughes wrote in the posts. Although the posts were eventually deleted, they were preserved in a number of places. 

“It might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting,” he added.

The band was performing in a Paris theater in 2015 when terrorists attacked. The band escaped unharmed. Eighty-nine others were left dead.
