Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor

Trent Reznor Says He Told U.S. Senator Ted Cruz To “Fuck Off” After Asking For Guest List At Nine Inch Nails’ Texas Show


Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor didn’t have the kindest of words for Texan U.S. Senator Ted Cruz during the band’s set in Irving, TX last night, November 27th. The below footage of the show emerged via Reddit and finds Reznor taking advantage of a lull in the set to address the crowd as follows:

“Who voted for Ted Cruz? See the lights aren’t on, I can’t see. Is there any way to turn the lights on? I’d like to see. Raise your hand, you guys, nothing to be ashamed of, just checking.

He might be here tonight, he was bugging to get on the guest list, and I told him to fuck off. We put him on a few years ago, he drank all the beer, and was just a pain in the ass to be around. So, I won’t, I won’t hold it against you.”
