Maynard James Keenan Sounds Off On Online Trolls
He tells AX Central: "I think maybe just that entitlement, the ability to immediately express an unfounded opinion that's not based on any kind of data or fact or research. It's just your opinion.
"It's unfortunate. What I think would help is some borderline extinction-level event. I think that would kind of set everything pretty straight. Something gorgeous. A meteor, a few tidal waves, maybe a rapid Ice Age, something to kind of make you worry more about food, clothing and shelter, rather than tweeting."
The singer adds that he's as uncomfortable with people who are offended without good reason as he is by trolls. And he suggests introducing spanking for university students as a possible solution.
He says: "I think there's a misconception out there about how offended people actually are and why you would give credence to anybody who was offended by anything. So what? So you're offended. And? You're still breathing. You're still walking. Nothing's changed about what's going on with you. I think it's silly." Read more here.
