In another instance of a celebrity behaving indecently in a public place, the founder of American rock band KISS has been banned from entering all premises of the Fox News Network after reportedly behaving indecently after giving an interview to the American news channel.
Gene Simmons, the man behind the highly successful rock band KISS reportedly misbehaved and “created a scene” after his interview with Fox & Friends’s Maria Bartiromo. He was there to give promotional interview for his new book On Power which is scheduled to be released shortly.
The interview for Fox Business’s show “Mornings with Maria” took place at the Fox News headquarters in midtown Manhattan. Simmons reportedly went to the 14th floor of the building after the interview and started misbehaving.
68 year old Simmons allegedly lost it when the talk show host asked him a question about Harvey Weinstein’s sex scandal, after which things went berserk. He reportedly abused all men for behaving in this way and then went on to proceed to the 14th floor of the premises.
He intervened a staff meeting which was in progress on the floor and reportedly behaved lewdly with a few woman, and when they protested, he shouted “Hey chick, sue me!”. He then went on to pull open his red velvet shirt and expose his bare chest and stomach to dozens of people present there.
He then reportedly made a few jokes about pedophilia and Michael Jackson, following which, he hit two Fox News employees on their head with his book and made remarks about how “stupid” they were.
The incident was reported to a Human Resources Executive who was present in the premises and after due consideration, the network decided to ban Simmons from entering any of their Network’s premises.
Simmons in the past has given several exclusive interviews to Fox News and has been a regular guest on several of their debates. The Fox Group however decided that it was important to maintain “work ethics” and decided to take the action.
