The KISS frontman offered up a mea culpa
on his official Facebook page Friday after comments from his July interview with
SongFacts.com went viral. In an online article, Simmons was quoted as saying
, "Drug addicts and alcoholics are always, 'The world is a harsh place.' My mother was in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. I don't want to hear f**k all about "the world as a harsh place. And for a putz, 20-year-old kid to say, 'I'm depressed, I live in Seattle.' F**k you, then kill yourself."
