GENE SIMMONS has apologized for saying that PRINCE’s death was “pathetic,” because he basically killed himself by taking too many drugs. And he admitted that he was wrong to say it like that.
But he’s still arguing his point. Quote, “I just got such [crap] from my family for my big mouth again. I apologize . . . I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families / friends of the addicts.
“In my experience [drugs] have made my life, and the lives of their loved ones, difficult. I was raised in a crowd where drug addicts were written off as losers, and since that’s the narrative I grew up with, it’s been hard to change with the times.” (Here’s his whole statement. Careful, there’s profanity.)
