Comic Kathy Griffin efficiently got down to make headlines this week, briefly positioning herself within the heart of America’s ongoing and more and more bitter tradition warfare by posing with a picture of a bloody and decapitated Donald Trump. (Which, good style or dangerous, did at the least have the impact of inspiring considered one of our favourite @Seinfeld2000 tweets shortly):
Anyway, Griffin’s picture in the end meant all of us received to spend a sometimes unproductive few days being mad at her, or mad on the folks mad at her, or simply usually offended on the world, these being the three main occupations of the American citizens proper now. However one group had a extra private grudge in opposition to the comic, one which’s been overshadowed within the extra basic ragestorm: GWAR.
The band’s bloody-minded bassist, Beefcake The Mighty, hopped on Fb this week to remind the world that, whereas Kathy Griffin is likely to be the new new presidential decapitator on the block, GWAR’s been within the sport for years. (Useful visuals, together with the severed heads of Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, are included to make the purpose.) The message then transitions into the marginally much less brutal world of tour promotion, with Beefcake reminding GWAR followers that they’ll see the band’s head-chopping antics at Van’s Warped Tour this summer time. Nonetheless, the purpose is evident: Be well mannered, don’t steal bits from heavy steel homicide monsters.
