Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes Injured In Motorcycle Accident, Unable To Return To Paris For Third Anniversary Of Le Bataclan Terrorist Attack

While riding his motorcycle, Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes was hit by a car and thrown headfirst into another one. Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet, but he still suffered a concussion and whiplash. As a result, the frontman was unable to return to Paris, France for the third anniversary of the November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks that left over 80 people dead during the band’s show at Le Bataclan alone.

Hughes said the following [translated from French]:

“Today is November 13 … in this day for the last three years, I was with my brothers and sisters in Paris, France and I planned for this year to be no different. .. I bought my ticket and I was ready to leave … But I took a ride on my bike and I was hit from behind and thrown head in the car in front of me … do not wanting nothing to interfere with my impending trip to Paris, I played it as if I was not hurt …. a day later, on my way to San Diego to see Morrissey I fell into the effects of a concussion and had to go to the emergency room while he … I was examined and diagnosed with a deep whiplash and said that I could not fly for five days … at the time, it seemed like a reasonable logic .. and of course, I knew that everyone would understand … but I made a mistake, I should be there with you, I do not I should not be here right now … I made a big mistake! I should have boarded the plane because … I do not know where to be right now … I do not know where I’m supposed to be … except with you in Paris.

I love you and I am bound to you by blood and I should be with you and it will be the biggest mistake I ever made … I do not know if I am right or wrong, but it is feel like I let the wrong people beat me a bit … and I think I should be there with you and I made a very big mistake and I hope you can forgive me for not being there right Now … My absence is tearing me up I have never felt like that before. I am here and nobody understands me … you do not !!! I need to be with you and I made a big mistake if someone has a chance and you see the mayor of Paris and the President of France do you want to give them a hug for me and inform them that I love them and that their leading ship and her kindness and your demonstration of love so deeply influenced me and that I’m sorry for not being there, I’m so sorry my friends …. I think I’m writing this in French because I really do not know what to do I do not know.”

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.

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Says He “Applauds” Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes For Speaking Out On The Gun Control Movement

Earlier today, Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes 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, All That Remains’ Phil Labonte, who is a gun advocate, has commented saying he “applaud(s)” Hughes for speaking out. Hughes is of course a mass shooting survivor himself, after living through a terrorist attack that left 89 people dead during Eagles Of Death Metal’s November 2015 concert in Paris.

Labonte previously shared these other posts about the movement as well:

If you are going to own a gun you have a responsibility to know how to use it properly. I can not emphasize enough how important this is. I’ve taken some classes with these guys. If you want to check out some of the evolutions check my YouTube page. #Repost @runenationllc ・・・ Obtaining the skills to never becoming a victim has zero correlation to race, color, gender, age, abilities or religion. However, what it does have a 100% direct correlation to, is showing up and putting in the work. Refreshingly simple to a chosen few, yet painfully difficult to most. 📷 @bcgmedia 📷 #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #training #outdoors #limitless #potential #growth #greyhive #pushyourself

Here’s a quick montage of some shooting classes I’ve taken. These were all with Ian at @runenationllc. We are planning to do some more stuff this spring so keep an eye out. When I say you need to get training I’m not just running my mouth. I’m always trying to better my handling of fire arms. And as an aside, I know some people are worried about responsible people owning firearms. When it comes to safety and qualification I have a solid amount of knowledge and my fair share of experience. Here’s a partial list; I have taken shooting classes, put in hours in the classroom learning about firearms law, spent two weeks at the rifle range in USMC boot camp, taken apart and put back together most of the firearms I own, I have 4 copies of my finger prints and photo on file with the ATF due to my 4 separate NFA items, I have no misdemeanor or felony arrests on my record, I have family members and friends who have and have had, up to and including, top secret clearance with the federal government. (I mention that because I always assumed they look into you if you’re around ppl w that kind of clearance, maybe they don’t, I dunno) So I am the very guy who would be called a “responsible” gun owner. It’s getting warmer guys, time to hit the range and brush up your skills. Be safe and get some training!

This news comes after Labonte posted a YouTube clip to show people the types of firearms he thinks they “need”, including: AR-15s, shotguns, etc.:

Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes Calls March For Our Lives “Pathetic And Disgusting”

Over the weekend, the youth took to the streets as part of the March For Our Lives movement in an effort to push for stricter gun laws and school safety in the wake of the Parkland, FL high school shooting, and past school shootings. Now, Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes, who himself became a mass shooting survivor after terrorists killed 89 people during the band’s November 2015 concert in Paris, has shockingly called the initiative “pathetic and disgusting.”

He shared a number of posts that have since been deleted, including one with a photoshopped image of Parkland survivor Emma González tearing up the constitution. The post had the following caption:

“Behold……the Awful Face Of Treason…..survivor of Nothing….Lover of Treason…..enjoy your little moment…..it’s about to End…… #stupidity #hatersofliberty #loversofsatan #borntolose #2ndamendment.”

He then shared a second amendment patch and an illustrated image of a bottle of pills that said “pills that are hard to swallow.” He also included a picture of three pills that said “Our guns aren’t going anywhere.”, “There are only 2 genders” and “Donald Trump will be your president for 7 more years”.

He also said the following in another post:

“Obviously….The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law (like the law against Murder) is to……..pass another Law!…..Genius!!!…… but before we pass this law we’re going to denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention….and look how well civil rights abuses as it concerns firearms helped to protect me and my friends in Paris!!!!!

This almost sounds like the plan of like a kid maybe like a high school student….!. Oh wait that’s right…. The Whitney Houston song about letting the children lead the way wasn’t actually had operating paradigm for life…..And when the truth don’t line up with your bullshit narrative just hold your breath and stamp your feet and refused to except it…. then take multiple days off of school playing hooky at the expense of 16 of your classmates blood….!…. it might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting……

As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action…..Long Live Rock’n’Roll….. and may everyone of these disgusting vile abusers of the dead live as long as possible so they can have the maximum amount of time to endure their shame….and be Cursed….”

Controversial Film Using Terror Attack At Eagles Of Death Metal’s Le Bataclan Show For Its Plot Gets Put On Hold

According to Deadline, France’s France 2 has postponed the new film “Ce Soir-La” (aka “That Night”), which was supposed to tell a fictional romance story, using the terrorsit attack that occurred during an Eagles Of Death Metal show at Le Bataclan on November 13, 2015 as a plot device. The decision was made after public disapproval and a Change.org petition, which was launched by Claire Peltier, who was a companion of one of the victims killed that night. France 2 said “the film, which is still being edited, has not been seen by the channel’s management” and that they have “made the decision to postpone this project until the production has widely consulted all victims’ associations.” The Paris terrorist attacks resulted in the deaths of over 80 people at that concert alone.
