Guns N’ Roses Release “COVID 45” Shirt
Guns N’ Roses, particularly Axl Rose, have always been vocal about their disdain for President Donald Trump. Now, they’re making a statement mocking Trump amid the coronavirus pandemic. This follows Trump’s visit to Arizona’s Honeywell factory where he failed to don a face mask – the factory makes protective N95 masks and there’s a clear sign that wearing of masks was required at the facility. The workers also played the GnR cover of “Live and Let Die” loudly in the background.
And so, Guns N’ Roses came up with a new merch – a t-shirt printed with “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45” in reference to the 45th president. It costs $25 and they’ll start shipping on June 10. According to their website, all of the proceeds will be given to MusiCares for their COVID-19 relief efforts.
Axl Rose has taken to Twitter several times to slam Trump and the government.
Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses were forced to cancel their UK and European tour dates because of the outbreak. They tweeted: “Things are changing daily and we want to keep our fans, crew members and band safe. We are working hard with our promoters, venues and cities/countries on next steps and will make further announcements as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience. We will get through this together and look forward to seeing you all very soon.”
