Sebastian Bach has taken to Twitter calling out a number of musicians who are known supporters of President Donald Trump following yesterday’s coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

Among the musicians Bach called out on Twitter were Big & Rich’s John Rich, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, former Judas Priest singer Tim “Ripper” Owens, Ace Frehley and Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer, who was photographed as one of the many who stormed the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

Bach’s tweet to Rich read, “Hey @johnrichit’s your old friend and fan here who went country. We just got to know …. after today do you still support Donald Trump? Are you down with what happened today?”

Bach’s tweet to Nugent read, “Hey @TedNugent is this what you want?”

Bach’s tweet to Rock read, “Hey @KidRock we hung out a couple times had some great times with Axl Etc. Hope your day is going well man! We all just got to know as fans and friends are you cool with what happened today in the United States of America? Do you still support Donald Trump after today? Thanks.”

Bach’s tweet to Owens read, “Hey @TimRipperOwens love your voice man and I’ve had some great times with you. As a fan and a friend I just have to know are you still a Donald Trump supporter after what happened today in the United States of America? All of your fans are wondering thanks man.”

Bach’s tweet to Frehley read, “Yo @ace_frehley you’ve been my hero my whole life & have been blowing my phone up telling me how much you love Donald Trump and hate Joe Biden. Just want to know as a lifelong fan do you support what happened today in the USA? Sure am glad there were no cell phones in the 70s.”

Bach’s tweet to Schaffer read, “Hey John [sic] Schaffer from @_IcedEarthYou support this piece of s—? Didn’t realize you were that dumb.”

Bach, a vocal opponent to President Trump, went viral in July 2020 when he tweeted, “If you support Donald Trump you stand against rock n’ roll and every musician in America who has been put out of work because a reality television show host doesn’t believe in science.”
