Yes, I know…30 Seconds to Mars isn’t metal. They’re epic hipster rock, if anything.
They’re also germaphobes, it seems.
Pictures depicting the band, wearing medical gloves whilst meeting fans, have outraged a number of musicians, including Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael.
Kael, who I can attest is a douche bag in real life, posted a photo of the band on his Instagram, showing them with white plastic gloves on.
“#30SecondsToMars at a meet and greet last week – WEARING RUBBER GLOVES! Nice message to send to your fans. #LivingInABubble #WeWillNeverBeThatBand #Dicks #PleaseSneezeOnThemIfYouGetTheChance”
Takes a dick to know a dick.
Yes, that seems mildly fucked up to shake hands with your fans while wearing medical gloves. But I also can’t blame the dudes for not wanting to share germs with people who may or may not wash their hands after using the bathroom.
Meanwhile, Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta offered up some interesting commentary on the photos.
“Lotsa tweets about 30 Secs 2 Mars wearin rubber gloves at signings,” writes Jasta. “But I bet Leto goes RAW when bangin thousands of babes! lol! #rawiswar”
