Kiss’ Gene Simmons Tells Depression Sufferers: “ You, Kill Yourself”

The rock star’s comments in conversation with Songfacts have caused outrage.posted on Aug. 15, 2014, at 12:38 p.m.

Last month the rocker told Songfacts.com:


For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, ‘I’m depressed. I live in Seattle.’ you, then kill yourself. I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I’m the guy who says ‘Jump’ when there’s a guy on top of a building who says, ‘That’s it, I can’t take it anymore. I’m going to jump.’ Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the up, have some dignity and jump! You’ve got the crowd.

“By the way, you walk up to the same guy on a ledge who threatens to jump and put a gun to his head, ‘I’m going to blow your *&%^$#@Ein’ head off.’ He’ll go, ‘Please don’t.’ It’s true. He’s not that insane.”

The comments are particularly poignant this week, coming so soon after the death of Robin Williams, who was suffering from depression at the time of his death.

Wow. Thank you Chaim Weitz, aka Gene Simmons.
Depression can be all encompassing. Just terrible.
Your mind is just as disgusting as your face.

My ex is like this, a commercial came on about a documentary where people jumped off of the Golden Gate Bridge. This sadistic MFer laughed and said that it was good that they jumped. I tried to explain to him the depths of depression because I have been through it and he didn't want to listen.

A lot of immigrant parents are like this, though. Not as radical, but they truly feel as if depression is a Western ailment. My friends and I were just talking about this last year. While I think it's a very real disease, they contest that twe come from countries where people make in one year what the average minimum wage worker makes in a week, and yet depression does not seem (we don't have any actual numbers) to be as rampant.

His brain is probably permanently screwed from all the drug use. Or he's old & senile. Either way, who cares what he thinks.
