It took me awhile to even figure out exactly what I’d said that pissed off all the Kiss trolls and as far as I can tell they’re mad because I called Ace and Peter alcoholic junkies, like that’s not common knowledge…. The most hilarious part is [the trolls] also, in their posts go on and on and ON about how I look! Apparently I’m a fat, stupid, Side Show Bob looking freak that none of them have ever heard of who has no right to talk shit about Ace and Peter. Ace and Peter, two grown men who made a fortune wearing Kabuki make up as a result of being even uglier than I am. You know why they wore make up? Because they needed it!
