Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On Anti-Maskers: “You Didn’t Say Sh*t When They F*cking Told You To Wear A Seat Belt”


Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has once again weighed in on the issue of wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic and the refusal of some to do so. Speaking with NME about how his current hometown of Las Vegas, NV has been handling the outbreak, he offered:

“Well, our mayor [Carolyn Goodman] is a fucking maniac. At the end of lockdown she made this video of her driving around the city screaming, ‘We’ve got the keys! We’re opening back up!’ and then as soon as places started trying to get back to normal, we had another upswing in COVID-like instances. All these jackasses were going to the casinos and not wearing masks. Like, what do you think was going to happen you fucking morons? I was just blown away by the ignorance of people.”

He later added:

“…The hardest thing has been walking my daughter through it. All of a sudden she doesn’t know why she can’t play with certain friends. Or why she can’t go to dance class. It’s been tough trying to explain the severity of it to her. Six-year-olds don’t understand things like fucking respiratory infections. Also, for a six-year-old, 10 minutes is an eternity. Try extrapolating that for six months. She’s been bouncing off the walls.”

He once again spoke of the matter later in the discussion, offering:

“…Seriously, people need to stop fucking whining. It’s like, people worrying about their rights being fucking stepped on. Are you kidding? You didn’t say shit when they fucking told you to wear a seat belt. You’re going to complain about wearing a mask for five to 10 minutes in the grocery store? Get the fuck out. If I can wear a mask for a two hour Slipknot show, you can wear one for five minutes. It’s such fucking idiotic garbage.”

Taylor‘s debut solo album “CMFT” will be out this coming Friday, October 02nd.
