Slayer’s Tom Araya Pisses Off Fans With Controversial “Conservatives Vs. Liberals” Post

Slayer’s Tom Araya has angered quite a few fans with a conservative leaning “Conservatives Vs. Liberals” Instagram post. It’s essentially an old chain letter with statements such as “If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one. If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat,” etc. He also offered the following caption: “With all the crazy shit going on I have to ask. I sit on the fence of reason Comments an opinions welcomed.”

Among those who commented, was his Slayer bandmate Gary Holt (Exodus):

“Too bad red states take more in aid than anyone and the meat industry and dairy are fighting the use of the word ‘milk’ such as soy milk, as if anyone with a brain would confuse the two, per the vegetarian part… Not to mention any critical comment on our current president is met with fury, not laughs.”

He also added:

“I know a lot of conservatives who work at Waffle House or Denny’s would like to know where this employee-sponsored health care is! Or how they can afford it working at Walmart selling patriotic goods made overseas!”

Araya previously caused controversy after posting a photoshopped image of Slayer with Donald Trump on the band’s official page. He then discussed it with Chilean radio station Futuro in part saying:

“That’s what America has become. It’s become a bunch of people that… because they didn’t get their way, they’re mad. I shared a picture that I thought was funny. They can’t even joke. They can’t even laugh at themselves. They can’t even have fun. And that just is amazing that it’s come to that. We’re a nation of crybabies. [Laughs]”
