AceShowbiz - Tommy Lee has angrily fired back at critics who would prefer he keep his political opinions to himself, after he was accused of being "out of touch".
The Motley Crue drummer has become an outspoken opponent of U.S. leader Donald Trump, and urged him to "wake the f**k up" after the President blamed last weekend's mass shootings in Ohio and Texas on violent video games and mental illness.
As Trump supporters took issue with the rocker's remarks, telling him to "shut up and stick to drums", Tommy fired back with a threat.
"The next person who tells me to stick to drumming and stay out of politics, I'm gonna come to ur house and shove my drumsticks up ur a** until you sneeze," he wrote.
As the backlash continued, with one Twitter user suggesting Lee, like many celebrities, doesn't know "what it feels like living paycheck to paycheck", and called him "OUT OF TOUCH", the rock star stood firm and added: "You must not have read (Motley Crue biography) The Dirt, I lived in a 4x4 apartment with 3 other dudes and cockroaches everywhere. We made $25/week. Don't tell me I'm out of touch."
But the critics kept coming after Lee, with another tweeting: "Yes dude, back in the early 80s. You haven't been in our world in over 30 years. You live in a mansion, you are no longer one of us. You don't face what we do everyday, that's why people can care less what you think."
