Disturbed Frontman Slams Parents At Batman Massacre
Disturbed frontman David Draiman has slammed the parents who took their 6-year-old daughter to the ill-fated "The Dark Knight Rises" which ended in a massacre. The girl was one of 12 who were killed in the attack. Another 58 people were injured by the lone gunman, who opened fire during the screening, including a three-month-old baby. Draiman took to Twitter to air his opinion, resulting in a backlash from some who felt his comments were in bad taste given the circumstances. "All you parents out there that think it's OK to take your infants out on the town with you, to a movie theater or otherwise, do the world a favor. Give your children up for adoption to parents who know what it is to be a responsible parent, and sacrifice on behalf of their children. Get a damn babysitter." He added: "This is why only certain people should be allowed the gift of a child. Too many simply aren't ready for the responsibility." Despite making a reasonable point, his message prompted some negative comments. Responding to them, Draiman said he has nothing but the deepest condolences for the victims and their families, but stands by his statement: "The notion that somehow it is alright to take a three-month old infant to a showing of any movie is preposterous... the effect that movie theatre sound often at dangerous levels of [decibels] can do permanent damage to a three-month-old infant's still-developing hearing. "It is and will remain my opinion that those who would subject a three-month-old child to it are not only irresponsible, sh-tty parents, but they should also be charged with child endagerment."
