Disturbed’s David Draiman Clarifies ‘Bad Parenting’ Twitter Commentary
In his initial posting, Draiman suggested that those parents who think it's okay to take their infants out on the town with them should give up their children for adoption to parents who know what it means to be responsible and sacrifice on behalf of their kids. The comments were initially inspired by a CNN report that had been filed in the wake of there being infant children in the movie theater where the shootings in Aurora, Colo., occurred last week.
In a new Twitlonger posting, Draiman states, "OK, since apparently my rant is 'news' to some people, and since the brain dead tend to pull what they want from whatever is said, let me be crystal clear. I have nothing but the deepest condolences from the families of the Denver 'Batman' massacre. It is shocking beyond belief, and may the perpetrator of the crime be forced to toss Hitler's salad in hell for eternity."
He goes on to add, "Separate from the catastrophic event is the notion that somehow it is alright to take a 3-month-old infant (not a 6-year-old child, although that is still questionable) to a showing of any movie is preposterous. Forget the fact that a 3-month-old should be safe in bed at midnight. Forget the fact their fragile immune systems shouldn't be subjected to the bacterial petri dish that is a movie theater. The primary issue is the effect that movie theater sound often at dangerous levels of DB can do permanent damage to a 3-month-old infant's still-developing hearing. This is separate from the massacre and it will remain my opinion that those who would subject a 3-month-old child to it are not only irresponsible, sh---y parents, but they should also be charged with child endangerment."
Ending on a note of levity, Draiman concluded, "Chris Rock said, 'You can drive a car with your feet if you want to. That don't make it a good f---in' idea.'"
