Gene Simmons Speaks On Fox News Ban


Gene Simmons has opened up about his ongoing beef with Fox News and says he did nothing to warrant his lifetime ban from the network. The KISS rocker was allegedly slapped with the ban after a foxnews.com staffer said Simmons was inappropriate in an off-camera meeting.

"Hey chicks, sue me!" the staffer claims Simmons yelled before "telling Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes, and then bopped two employees on the head with his book, making derisive comments about their comparative intelligence according to the sound their heads made when struck."

He since has claimed he never tore his shirt off and that the allegations are grossly over stated:

"Here's how I wear my shirt. Somebody there apparently had the goods in for me and called something called The Daily Beast or something and said whatever they said I did," Simmons stated during an interview with BBC "Hardtalk"'s Sarah Montague. "I did nothing. I always had people around me. Like when I come here, I've got handlers and everybody sees what I'm doing. You can't go into a public area and do anything."
