Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes, himself a survivor of gun violence in the 2015 Paris attacks, is calling last week's March For Our Lives protest “pathetic” in a series of social media posts—read them below.

As reported by The Guardian, Hughes took to Instagram on Sunday to criticize the organized protest against gun violence in five separate posts—three of which have now been deleted. Denouncing Saturday's march prompted by February's Stoneman Douglas High School shooting as a means to “denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention,” he says it “might be funny if it wasn't so pathetic and disgusting.”

The Eagles Of Death Metal singer and guitarist was performing with his band at the Bataclan theatre in Paris, France, on Nov. 13, 2015, when a mass shooting occurred. Durring the assault, suicide attackers killed 89 concertgoers inside the venue, among a reported 130 people dead across the city in a coordinated strike. Hughes and his bandmates survived the attack, but a worker at the band's merchandise table, Nick Alexander, was among those killed.

“As the survivor of a mass shooting,” Hughes continues, “I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action.”

“I’ve made a rule and my musical life that everyone should check their politics at the door…… i’ve always believed in the motto I may not agree with what you’re saying but I’ll die for your right to say it. Saddens me to see so many not have this motto for the same….. but this is my Instagram for Rock’n’Roll and I think I’m going to keep it that way….. i’m going to start a second Instagram for where I shall put my political beliefs…. I love every lover of Rock’n’Roll and And every lover of Rock’n’Roll is welcome here check your politics at the door and I’ll start with myself…..!!!!!”
