Corey Taylor doesn't mince words for people who are defying the mask protocols, saying they are a posing a risk not just to themselves, but to all those around him.
Speaking to the Let There Be Talk podcast with Dean Delray, Taylor was asked how his hometown of Las Vegas was handling all the pandemic stuff. Taylor let loose.
The Slipknot frontman said "It burned up again, because our mayor is a dipshit. This thing is gonna fucking — it's gonna keep doing that until it evens out, man. It's gonna keep doing it until we get a vaccine, to be honest, or at least something that can prevent.
"Vegas, it's up and down. There are still a bunch of fucking mooks with no masks on at the casinos," he continued. "And, actually, the people who were there — tourists or visitors or whatever — were giving shit to people who were wearing masks. That was enough for me to just go, 'You know what, man? Fuck you!'
"It's, like, not everything has to be a political fucking statement. It's better to just be cautious. It's better to be smart. You wanna walk around with no fucking mask on, you go ahead and spin the barrel, and let's see how many times you can click it. But these people who are actually trying to be preventive, there's no reason for you to give them a rash of shit — they weren't fucking saying anything to you. It's just ridiculous, man.
"That's the shit that people aren't talking about — the fact that some people are just minding their own fucking business, and a bunch of garbage fucking falls out of people's faces, and it just keeps the fucking wheel spinning," Taylor added. "Maybe if we all just kind of kept some shit to ourselves, maybe shit would fucking quiet down."
Taylor is out promoting his new solo album, CMFT, out October 2nd on Roadrunner Records.
