‘Well trolled, Metallica’: Band pokes back at anti-hunting whiners [video, pics]

Dear anti hunting whiners complaining about James Hetfield

No one cares. Metallica didn't get cancelled from Glastonbury

Happy crywanking.

Last month, Twitchy told you about the halfwits who wanted Metallica frontman James Hetfield murdered for his support of hunting. Hetfield narrates “The Hunt,” the History Channel’s series on Kodiak brown bear hunting.

If they couldn’t see him hunted down and shot to death, critics hoped Metallica would at least get yanked from the Glastonbury music festival in England. Others complained that heavy metal doesn’t belong at Glastonbury.

But the whiners lost and Metallica couldn’t resist addressing the screechy uproar. “Glastallica” T-shirts proudly flaunting the criticism were reportedly sold at the festival.

And then the band addressed haters by debuting this short film featuring gun-wielding band members in bear costumes and British fox hunters.

Some found the film confusing, with many baffled YouTube commenters asking, “WTF did I just watch?”

Others were certain the film and t-shirts were master-level trolling and a middle-finger salute to the hate brigade.

The film was directed by Julien Temple, the filmmaker who made “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle” for the Sex Pistols.

For Whom The Band Trolls.

Editor’s note: Thanks to commenter “Maryland_Malcontent” for pointing out that our earlier post on James Hetfield was published last month. The first sentence has been amended accordingly.

‘It doesn’t get any cooler’: Nikki Haley hangs out with Joan Jett [pics]

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley loves her some Joan Jett.

During a trip to New York to attend the Republican Governors Association meeting, Haley got to cross an item off her bucket list. From her Facebook page:

I have always said there are 3 people I would love to sit down with: Margaret Thatcher, Gov. Carroll Campbell, and Joan Jett. While I will never have the opportunity with the first two, Michael and I sat down with my music idol Joan Jett today and her producer Kenny Laguna. Strength, talent, passion, and courage…it doesn’t get any cooler than her.

Haley once told an interviewer:

I have a great love for Joan Jett. When I am going through the toughest times, I’ll blast her music. She was one of the first female rockers when female rockers weren’t accepted. When no one would sign her, she created her own label. And when she accomplished everything … she walked away! I mean, how cool is that?

A snark-tastic journey with ‘Hillary through history’

http://twitter.com/#!/AndrosonT/status/526435755082919936

Hillary Clinton was born on October 26, 1947 and the occasion of her cake day presents a great opportunity for sickening puff pieces … or mockery thereof.

Living History Hillary Clinton

She has lived history, people. No one else can say that except for … well … everybody. Nonetheless, that and staying married to a lecherous yet successful adulterer makes her uniquely qualified to become the first president with lady parts.

Nice pants. We never knew Wellesley had a clown college.

She’s special that way. Most people born in 1947 can’t say that.

Ouch.

Heh.
