Five Finger Death Punch Frontman Ivan Moody On Ex-Bad Wolves Singer Tommy Vext: “This Dude’s A Waste Of My Time”

Back in 2017, ex-Bad Wolves singer filled in for Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody during some shows in Europe. However, in the years since, Vext has continuously caused controversy due to various abuse allegations and his right-wing and conspiracy theory beliefs. Now, during some recent Instagram Live sessions, Moody shared his thoughts on Vext, saying that he is “a waste of [his] time.”

Moody said the following:

“Am I still friendly with Tommy Vext? Friendly? Yes… Yes. Friends? I’m not sure if we ever were anymore. Listen, I’m not going to get too far into it, but I don’t understand people that believe half what they say and say half what they believe. I just don’t get where politics got so massively involved with the kid. I think he got a little taste of it and the love that comes with picking a side and, in my opinion, got stuck. And, I’ve said this actually, that I wish he would just come out and say, ‘Listen, I fucked up.'”

“The thing about it is, and if you want the truth, is that… I’ve been friends with Doc [Coyle] and John [Boecklin] from Bad Wolves for almost 20 years… So for me, that relationship goes deeper…. That whole collective, they’re fucking rad people, man. And so when I hear about [Coyle] getting choked the fuck out over something really minor, no.”

“I watched something of him on stage where he’s just going off. [Impersonating Vext] ‘You don’t fucking know, man…’ I’m just like, ‘Play a song! Play a fucking song.’ Write it down, put it into script and make music, which is what people are fucking paying for you to do!”

He also added the following in a separate Q&A session:

“This dude’s a waste of my time, I don’t know why you guys keep bringing him up. He’s more worried about me than I am him… And P.S., the reason I don’t talk shit online, and I don’t need to, is because if I have a fucking problem with somebody, I’ll just go to their fucking house. I’ll show up and we can talk. Really talk… I’ve got no time for bullshit, man, and I ain’t tryna make anyone popular by giving them my fucking yes or no. Suck it.”
