Wolfgang Van Halen has faced his online detractors head on — with things getting ugly once again on his Twitter feed. Wolfgang; who has never failed to come back even harder against people that trash him, his music, or his parents — his late-father Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli — took exception with a post that slammed him by saying, “Know who you are starting to remind me of — (Donald) Trump. If anyone does something or says something you don’t agree with, you immediately go on the attack with name-calling and other immature replies. You’re hurting your reputation with this trivial BS.”
Wolfgang responded: “Oh get f—ed AND blocked. I’ve got every right in the world to call people scum who release private information about my family. F— them and f— you.”
He went on to post: “If you f— with my family, especially my father who is unable to defend himself, you f— with me. It’s my job to do so now and I’ll never stop. So if you’ve got a problem with that, you can either learn how to get over it or unfollow me.”
Wolfgang Van Halen told us that his father’s illness inspired him to double down his efforts to finish his solo album — with his debut single under the Mammoth WVH moniker, “Distance,” topping the iTunes Top 100 Songs chart.
No title or release date has been announced for the Mammoth WVH’s debut album.
JUST OUR OPINION
- Hey, bottom line — this guy needs to just back off from social media. It’s driving him batty.
- It’s tough enough if your father is a rock god, you DO NOT LOOK like the pre-conceived notion of what a rock star is supposed to look like, AND you replaced the one guy in the band that EVERYBODY loved and had nothing but great memories of.
- This guy is a prefect storm / conductor of bad vibes from ugly fans. He should really just disable his accounts and enjoy his friends in other ways.
- People dumping on Wolfgang online and then him trying to outwit them, and battle back is becoming his defining characteristic. The dude needs to pull the plug.
