Slayer Tell Fans: Ignore Westboro Baptist Church
Slayer have asked fans to ignore a protest by Westboro Baptist Church which will take place outside Jeff Hanneman's official memorial celebration today. The memorial will take place on May 23 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles from 3:30 to 7:30pm. Unfortunately, the hate-filled religious group Westboro Baptist Church have decided to target the event because Slayer supposedly "encourage sin" with their music. "Jeff made a mock of sin through Slayer's music. No wonder God struck him down early in life," reads their statement which ends: "GOD HATES YOU ALL." Slayer's proposed solution is simple: "Want to really p-ss off the Westboro Baptist Church at Jeff's Memorial Celebration? Do exactly what Slayer members and family are going to do - totally ignore them. They don't exist. And then come inside and celebrate Jeff's life with us." It's not the first time the Westboro Baptist Church have targeted rock musicians. They've been picketing outside Radiohead and Taking Back Sunday shows too, but the rock world knows how to bite back and in 2011 Dave Grohl retaliated with his own protest against the group.
