Eagles Of Death Metal Frontman Apologizes For Calling Parkland Shooting Survivors 'Vile Abusers Of The Dead'

Filed under: InstagramViral: NewsSocial Issues

no title

Jesse Hughes totally didn't mean to call the Parkland shooting survivors "vile abusers of the dead."

The Eagles of Death Metal frontman issued an apology for his insensitive Instagram post in which he seemingly bashed the teen survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting for their viral blitz on gun control reform.

The rocker shared a video Saturday afternoon trying to explain why he publicly claimed the telegenic teens were "exploiting" the deaths of their friends, clarifying that he was commenting on "the hijacking" of the "beautiful agenda" of gun safety led by the nation's youth — not the youth themselves.

Hughes admitted that his message was lost in his typo-ridden post, which instead came across as a "mean spirited personal attack and slight of the youth themselves."

The singer also spoke on the shooting at the Bataclan in 2015, acknowledging that surviving such a tragedy should have made him handle this situation "more maturely and responsibly." Yeah, no kidding.

Hughes wrapped up his statement by begging for forgiveness, saying he "did not mean to do" what it seemed like he was doing. We guess he changed his mind about shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez being "survivor of nothing" and the "awful face of treason"?

Watch his full apology (below).
