Twisted Sister rocker Dee Snider doesn’t want unvaccinated fans attending his concerts, saying the chance of making him sick with COVID-19 represents “an invasion of my privacy.”
In an interview with Heavy Consequence, the 66-year-old Dee Snider expressed his support for vaccine mandates for concerts. He also used an expletive to warn off any fans who aren’t vaccinated.
“Your chance of making me sick is an invasion of my privacy, so fuck you,” he said. “If you don’t like it, find your own band. Ted Nugent is out there somewhere. Kid Rock is welcoming you. … You don’t have a right to infect me.”
The rocker didn’t mention specifically that the people who continue to be the most hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine, according to an August 4 report from the Kaiser Family Foundation, are black and Hispanic people. In New York City, for instance, just 31 percent of black people have been vaccinated. Bloomberg News recently reported that some heavily non-white areas of New York City “have lower vaccination rates than Mississippi.” – READ MORE
