Korn guitarist defends Mike Huckabee collab performance after backlash
Huckabee hosts a talk show on a Christian-based TV network where Welch recently appeared to discuss his new documentary about recovery, Loud Krazy Love.
The two also performed Korn's "Blind" together. While the guitarist was just there to promote his documentary, he wasn't expecting the reaction online.
Welch discussed the appearance on his Instagram, saying he and Huckabee "may agree or disagree on certain social issues; I don't know. I've never talked to him about politics, and I don't follow politics."

@govmikehuckabee and I may agree or disagree on certain social issues; I don’t know. I’ve never talked to him about politics, and I don’t follow politics. People can say what they want about me jamming with the Gov, but this man has been nothing but humble and extremely kind to me and my daughter. Thank you @govmikehuckabee we had a blast!
In case you're out of the loop, Huckabee is notoriously anti-abortion, supports the death penalty and stood against Obamacare among other things. The two are both of the same religious ideology though so it's not shocking Welch doesn't care about Huckabee's history.
