PUSSY! Henry Rollins apologizes for suicide article

So, you took full advantage of the attention you would get by writing a piece for LA Weekly called “Fuck Suicide.”  Then, after the blowback and anger was even more than you’d imagined it would be, you folded like an accordion and wrote a follow-up apology called “More Thoughts on Suicide.”

You’re a big boy, Henry Rollins, and I believe that you knew exactly what you were doing, punk rock-style, when you tried to enrage people with the first piece. But your explanation for your apology is disingenous.

I believe that you apologized in order to protect your livelihood, such as it is today, to shut up anyone who might be jeopardizing the income you earn, not because you’re sorry.

These pathetic apologies are happening more and more as professional iconoclasts such as yourself try to get attention by being outrageous, then try to have it both ways by apologizing.

Are you trying to claim that you didn’t know what you were doing when you wrote “Fuck Suicide?” That’s bullshit. You’re 53 years old, and you’ve spent a lifetime showing everyone what an iconoclast you are. If you’re going to be outrageous, have the balls to say what you mean, and stand behind what you say.

Or just shut up.

Why won’t CNBC tell us how much they profited from running infomercials of convicted fraudster Kevin Trudeau?

Congrats to CNBC for being on top of the Kevin Trudeau pyramid scheme story.

Only one thing CNBC left out of their report: Kevin Trudeau infomercials have run thousands of times in the off-hours on CNBC in recent years, potentially enriching parent company NBC Universal with millions of dollars off the backs of the victims of Trudeau’s criminal behavior, which sent him to the federal slammer for ten years.

How many times did Trudeau’s infomercials air on CNBC in total? How much did NBCUniversalComcastWhatever profit from Trudeau’s criminal behavior?

Why did CNBC continue running Trudeau infomercials, even after he was hauled off to federal prison?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for an answer from NBCUniversal.

Here’s the story.
