KISS' PAUL STANLEY Calls MARILYN MANSON "Pathetic" For His Charles Manson Tribute
The internet is a weird place nowadays. You might remember, a few weeks ago Marilyn Manson offered his opinion on KISS. He called them "four gay dudes in Halloween costumes." Now, through no connection to these comments, we know what Paul Stanley thinks of Marilyn Manson.
Manson paid tribute to mass murderer Charles Manson yesterday (he wasn't the only one) by posting his version of a song written by the elder Manson, "Sick City," which appeared on his 2000 album Holy Wood.

Here's the song embed, by the way:
Paul Stanley was not okay with this. He was more than not okay, he lashed out at Manson:
Pathetic when somebody who’s career never really took off is desperate enough to try for publicity by connecting himself to the news of a murdering scumbag’s death. @RollingStone @UltClassicRock https://t.co/SShmw5Wmse

It's unfair to say Manson's career never took off, when the guy was the biggest thing in rock for a good period of time a decade ago, and is still selling pretty well. It is also weird for Stanley to be commenting on anybody else being a publicity whore, but I am sure that Stanley would counter that KISS never tried to get publicity off a "murdering scumbag."
