Eagles of Death Metal Jesse Hughes apologized on Saturday for "the young of America" for criticizing March for Our Lives protest march. The apology came five days after Hughes abused the surviving students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and shot them as "vile vile slavers of the dead."
"Recently, I've posted some posts on my Instagram that do not convey my sense of a variety of topics," Hughes said in his video apology on Instagram. "What I intended to say about abducting the beautiful agenda of a youth movement of our nation on either side of the aisle came as a vile and personal attack and a light one from the youth itself."
Hughes added, "I want to be clear, I never intended this to happen, I did not try to punish the youth of America and this beautiful thing they did, I am truly sorry, I wanted Do not harm or harm anyone. "
In Hughes – an Instagram post that has since been erased after March For Our Lives' protest march, the rocker – himself a survivor of the Bataclan terrorist attack in Paris – wrote:" As a survivor of a mass shooting can I tell you? From first experience, you all protest in protest and take you from school, insulting the memory of those killed, and insulting me and every other friend of liberty with every one of their actions. "
However, Hughes said on Saturday," As someone who has watched their friends shot in front of their eyes and seen that people were killed who loved them, I would have the much more mature and responsible I did not, and I screwed it up. And I hope you can forgive me, but please know that I did not want to do what I'm doing right now.
