Bassist Rex Brown (Pantera) slammed President Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus outbreak.
Rex posted on his Twitter page the following:
“Now if only…We would’ve listened to these guidelines, 3 million of us wouldn’t be sick,”
“140,000+ Dead & Counting. And to think that we had to listen to an ‘Oompahloompa‘ that only wants ratings, not precaution…Distgusting!!”
A fan wanted to point out to Rex that there are 328 million people in America while New Zealand only has around 5 million, and insisted that New Zealand isn’t “handling anything better,” , and Rex responded:
“I know the #’s are disproportionate.. If everyone would just quit being the problem, we wouldn’t be where we are today!! Thx for your oversight..”
More what he said:
It’s called ‘Leadership’!! That was the point I was trying to get across & failed, in my knee jerk reaction to the piece.”
