Gene Simmons is a Jackass

Posted by - 10:59 AM on 08/18/14
Gene Simmons believes those that are depressed should just kill themselves.
For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, 'I'm depressed. I live in Seattle.' Fuck you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I'm the guy who says 'Jump' when there's a guy on top of a building who says, 'That's it, I can't take it anymore. I'm going to jump.' Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fuck up, have some dignity and jump! You've got the crowd," Simmons said. "By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, 'I'm going to blow your fuckin' head off.' He'll go, 'Please don't.' It's true. He's not that insane.

Update: Gene has apologized.
To the extent my comments reported by the media speak of depression, I was wrong and in the spur of the moment made remarks that in hindsight were made without regard for those who truly suffer the struggles of depression. I sincerely apologize to those who were offended by my comments. I recognize that depression is very serious and very sad when it happens to anyone, especially loved ones. I deeply support and am empathetic to anyone suffering from any disease, especially depression.

Not that it's ok... AT ALL, but this quote is from a few weeks back and he has apologized and said he was wrong for saying it at all.

Obviously doesn't make it ok, but I do think it should be mentioned that he has acknowledged his mistake

What a fucking idiot.

Edit: after reading the quote again I can't believe someone could be so ignorant and so stupid to make these type of comments when you know people are listening. We need less of these jackasses.
