Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes Apologizes For Controversial March For Our Lives Comments

Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes previously made headlines after he shockingly said the youth led March For Our Lives gun control movement was “pathetic and disgusting” in a series of deleted social media posts. Now, he has shared a new Instagram video to apologize for his comments. You can watch that below:

Hughes said the following [transcribed by Loudwire]:

“Recently I made some posts on Instagram that did not communicate how I feel about a variety of topics. What I’d intended to be a statement about the highjacking by any side of the aisle of the beautiful agenda of the movement of our nation’s youth came off seeming like a mean-spirited attack and slight of the youth themselves and even a personal attack of its leadership. I wanted to be clear, I never wanted that to happen. I never intended to impugn the youth of America and this beautiful thing they accomplished.”

“I am truly sorry. I did not mean to hurt anyone or cause any harm. As someone who has watched their friends shot in front of their eyes and seen people killed that they loved, I should’ve handled this a lot more maturely and responsibly and I did not do that and I messed up. And I hope that you are able to forgive me, but please know that I did not mean to do what it seems like it was I was doing.”

Hughes became a mass shooting survivor himself, after terrorists killed 89 people during Eagles Of Death Metal’s November 2015 concert in Paris.
