I had no intention of blogging again about His Holiness Trent Reznor but since his last tweet directing his minions to his latest rant at NIN.com where he pours his heart (?) out, sitting trolls & cyber bullies for giving up his “social networking experiment“, I feel I must say something.
It is unfortunate that His Holiness handles his PR himself and happens to suffer from “foot in mouth” syndrome. In his latest rant he plays the victim (butthurt) at first but not long after goes on to offend a large proportion of his own fans by saying and I quote “mainly by unattractive plump females who publicly fantasize about having sex with guys in bands. Kind of like a role-playing game where people NOBODY will fuck make up stories about their incredible sexual encounters with people they WISH they could fuck.” Well, it might have escaped him but there are LOTS of BEAUTIFUL and very successful plump people in this world and as you will see from the screen shots I`m going to post here, a lot of his own fans are plump females who do fantasize about him and others. Doh! #1 Also, lets be honest here, Reznor is pretty plump himself! Doh! #2
Then his rant progresses into a ill advised “piece of advice” to his fans that and I quote: “Cutter’s tip for my friends there: remember to cut along the length of vein, not across. Bigger payoff.” I`m sure he failed to see the consequences of that friendly tip. Baring in mind a large number of his most loyal fans are troubled people (no offence intended here) who were first attracted to Reznor and his music because it spoke about these said troubles and troubled feeling, giving them “tips” on how to best commit suicide is utterly reproacheacble. Doh! #3
That rant was then a double edge sword: he got the “love” aka brown nosing he so desperately craves for from his adoring fans BUT it also angered many who saw through him. As I see it, more and more people are starting to wake up to the fact that he isnt G-d`s gift to wo/menkind and that he is a very flawed human being (like the rest of us). People are starting to speak out against his playground bullying antics.
Yes he was a great musician but that does not entitle him to alienate his “plump” fans, does not entitle him to bully and victimise those who stand up to his bs nor does it entitle him to entice a hand-full of blindly devoted/loyal fanatics to take revenge on those who disagree with him.
