New “American Idol” judge Harry Connick Jr. has won raves for his music theory expertise and fresh injection of energy on the talent show’s panel. But as Twitchy noted a few weeks ago, many admirers are alarmed by his rather unnatural color.

Tonight, inquiring minds still wondered: Why so orange, Harry? Or yellow? Scary!

DJ duo: Ebola was manufactured for population control

What is it with musicians and Ebola?

Yesterday, Twitchy brought you the story of a Grammy-nominated production team, Arkatech Beatz, which claimed that Ebola is a fake scenario conjured up by pharmaceutical companies.

The Martinez Brothers, “globe-trotting DJ superstars” from the Bronx, also hold peculiar views about Ebola.

And if you don’t agree with them, “your buggin.”

Fall Out Boy fans not thrilled with wealthy lib Pete Wentz’s elitism

So staunch Obama-supporting liberal, nationalized health care pimp, and million-dollar-mansion owner Pete Wentz of the band Fall Out boy wants his fans to just hop on a plane and catch his next concert in Mexico. Where he and his bandmates will undoubtedly “rage” against the 1 percenters.

Dude. The young, struggling Americans who make up Wentz’s fan base had a thing or two to say in response to the out-of-touch entertainer’s flippant tweet.

This Twitter user says Wentz deleted a second tweet urging people to fly to his concert in Mexico:

How about redistributing the wealth, dude?

‘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.

— Markus Von Bastarde (@CountBastardo) June 29, 2014

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.
