The Kiss member feels Sterling should have been let off with a fine, fears loss of privacy
Even when it seems everyone is opposed to something as awful as Donald Sterling’s racist rant, everyone isn’t always on the same page. In an interview for The Wall Street Journal, Kiss’ Gene Simmons expressed his support for the former Los Angeles Clippers owner.
In doing press for the new AMC series 4th and Loud -- about the Kiss-branded Arena Football League team L.A. Kiss -- Simmons was asked if he had followed the Sterling incident.
“I'm on the side of Don Sterling,” he replied, before his position was even asked. Although he admits that Sterling is “heinous,” he opines that he should have been let off with a fine, since the rant occurred in private.
