‘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.

‘Any regrets, Brad?’ Wreckovery news prompts brutal Woodhouse flashback

http://twitter.com/#!/JimmyPrinceton/status/481792709019967488

Rut-roh … wonder if Brad Woodhouse has gone into hiding. Who could blame him? After this morning’s craptastic news that the economy shrank by 2.9 percent in the first quarter, we’re guessing the last thing the former DNC comms director wants to do is face the music:

http://twitter.com/#!/conkc2/status/481806162971459584

It’s really something:

http://twitter.com/#!/woodhouseb/status/462214969086332928

Awk-ward! For him, that is. Because as lousy as the economic news is for us, there’s still a silver lining: Brad Woodhouse has further cemented his reputation as a colossal jackass. And that, friends, is schadenfreudelicious:

He’s getting used to it.

Bon appétit, Brad.

Hard to argue with that assessment:

Best GIF ever on Twitpic

Especially when you consider Washington Free Beacon reporter Lachlan Markay’s take:
