In a brand new interview with The Ringer, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor talked about the feedback from his fans for the anti-Donald Trump comments he has made on Twitter and through various media outlets.
“I don’t know, to be honest. There’s a whole lot of Trump supporters who are very vocal when they’re, like, ‘Keep your f*cking politics to yourself.’ But they don’t say that to people who agree with them.
They don’t say that to artists who are conservative and may or may not support Trump, but they definitely support what conservatives believe in. So it’s, like, ‘Oh, you just don’t want to hear me because you don’t agree with me.’ Okay, f*ck you. That’s not the way this works.
The way a dialogue works is sometimes you’re going to hear sh*t that you don’t f*cking like. Sometimes you’re going to hear sh*t that you don’t agree with. That’s why this over-censorship bullsh*t that’s going on is f*cking terrifying. Because that’s not how freedom of speech works… Or some people go, ‘Well, that’s the last album I buy.’
Well, the last time I checked, people are still buying Nikes, people are still f*cking going to football games, people are still doing 100 f*cking things that other people find offensive. And it’s, like, ‘Well, guess what. The world keeps turning, and I’m going to keep f*cking talking.”
