Slayer’s Tom Araya Has Questions For Instagram After Band Picture With Trump Vanishes


Slayer vocalist/bassist Tom Araya hasĀ been left confused by an apparent missing picture he posted via the band’s Instagram (see below.) The post in question was a photoshopped image of the band’s classic lineup and current U.S. President Donald Trump. Expectedly it drew a mixed reaction, however, Araya claims the picture soon vanished from the social media service. While it’s certainly possible that others with access to the account may have pulled the picture, Araya seems to think that something more nefarious happened to it. He posted:

“Believe it or not this picture was posted by me Tom Araya on 1/20 cause I thought it was funny … I was amazed at the comments about the picture some positive some negative more amazing was in 2 hours there was 10,000 likes … But i never would have guessed that there where so many snowflakes commenting their distaste for the new president. Like him or not he is the president … woke up the next morning and found someone had deleted the post … can some one please explain why…?”

Met with criticism for the post later in the comments, Araya further explained his intentions with the original image:

Tom here… some of you get it and obviously some of you don’t . As I stated in the post I thought the picture was funny”
