Rob Zombie Stands Up For Baby Metal Against His Fans
Rob Zombie shut down his fans on Facebook who took him to task for posing with teen Japanese girl group Baby Metal.
Rob Zombie Defends Baby Metal
Zombie took to his Facebook page Monday with a picture of himself next to Suzuka Nakamoto (Su-metal), Yui Mizuno (Yuimetal) and Moa Kikuchi (Moametal) of Baby Metal. He captioned the black and white shot, “Backstage with my new pals BABY METAL.”
Zombie was soon met with backlash from some of the heavy metal fans who frequent his page. His response was to put them in their place. “Hey they are nice kids out on the road touring. What are you doing besides being a grumpy old f–k.?” he asked one poster.
He told one critic, “These three girls had more energy than 90 percent of the bands we play with,” and told another, “They roll harder than you.”
Baby Metal was touched by Rob Zombie’s defense of them, and wrote, “Thank you Rob! The Spirit of HEAVY METAL traversed across the World, rose above language barriers, went beyond generations and created countless legends. See you again at Northern Invasion!”
Prior to the upheaval on Zombie’s page, Baby Metal had posted their own picture with Rob Zombie and Carolina Rebellion, captioning it, “Thank you for coming to our stage @cRebellion #CarolinaRebellion @RobZombie #robzombie.”
