Gary Holt reprints “Kill The Kardashians” shirt to combat “bootleggers”
Now, Holt is returning to the roots with one of his first controversial moments regarding the Kardashians. The guitarists printed more "Kill the Kardashians" shirts. Holt previously made headlines last year for his frequent wearing of the shirt.
Contrary to the shirts Gary Holy wears, he doesn't actually hate the Kardashians. In June 2019 the guitarist was asked what he’d do with five minutes alone with Kim Kardashian but rather than attack her and her family, he cleared up how he feels.
“You know, I don’t hate the Kardashians,” Holt says. “I hate the people that have made them famous — us. I hate the fact that people are so enamored and just fascinated with the glorious lifestyles of the rich and famous that they would elevate them to this status.” That video is below.
So with that cleared up, Holt's shirts don't literally mean "Kill the Kardashians." The musician took to Instagram today to announce that he printed more of the shirts. They range in sizes from small-3XL.
THEY’RE BACK!!!! The “Holt Awaits “ version of the KTK shirts!Up now in the eBay store!! Sizes small through 3XL!! No more buying them from China and Indonesia !! Fuck the bootleggers!?Get em from the Officer!!!! Link as always in my profile!!
So, if you want to buy one of these shirts, head here.
More Gary Holt
Just over a year ago, following an Imagine Dragons appearance at the College Football Championship, Holt spoke up with perhaps the bluntest words for the act who consistently nab rock accolades while taking flak for not being rock enough.
In fact, Holt’s reported anti-Dragon diatribe may have seemed so improper once viewed in the hindsight of morning’s harsh light that the guitarist decided to purge it altogether. Purportedly shared Monday night on his Instagram account, the following text from the alleged post is no longer available on the photo and video-sharing social media service.
But here’s what it reportedly said:
Just watched the college football half time show to see just how bad it really was. PLEASE no more calling this shittiest band on earth ‘rock’, they are simply the crappiest excuse for a band I’ve ever heard. Uggggh. Just awful. I don’t usually enjoy slagging musicians but they can’t really call themselves that. So fuck em!!
That’s according to Metalhead Zone and Loudwire, anyway. Both blogs embedded Holt’s Insta post now ghost. All the same, we’ll assume Imagine Dragons aren’t hurting for praise. They’ll probably just pick up another award and get on with it.
Gary Holt just finished Slayer’s final show last month. So now he’ll be back to focusing on Exodus. Tell us what you think of Gary Holt's new Kardashians shirts in the comments below!
