Current Slayer, and former Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has made no secret about his “Kill The Kardashians” rebuttals over the years.
Gary Holt is once again calling out the Kardashian clan, this time it was Kim’s hypocritical designer comments on Twitter that set the guitarist off.
All of this of course following her sisters’ and the vintage band shirt incident two years ago.
Summer 2017: Kendall and Kylie Jenner launched a line of vintage tees featuring their mugs emblazoned across heavy metal icons such as Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne, along with many others. Like we weren’t already tired of their faces. Naturally, James Hetfield, Sharon Osbourne and Gary Holt chewed them a new asshole on the issue.
Holt wore his Kill The Kardashians shirt back in 2015 (prior to the vintage tee debacle). He is now bringing the phrase back!

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter to criticize companies that had been stealing her husband’s “so-called fashion” designs. Slayer guitarist Gary Holt was quick to remind Kim of the hypocrisy in her statements.
“It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas. I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.
“Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it’s not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet.
“This is a way to get people to sign up for their mailing list and make people believe there is some kind of relationship between me and this fashion site. There is not.
“My relationships with designers are very important to me. It’s taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life. I often plan for weeks, sometimes months, and even a year in advance, and I’m grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create.
“So, as always, don’t believe everything you read and see online. I don’t have any relationships with these sites. I’m not leaking my looks to anyone, and I don’t support what these companies are doing.” – Kim Kardashian
Part of Gary’s rebutting rank included the following…
“It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas,’ So says this dumb fuck from a dumb fuck family with THE longest history of ripping off designers on this earth. Like when they thought NOTHING of taking musicians album covers WITHOUT permission and slapping their faces over them for 120 dollar T shirts, or buying one of each design by a designer (paper trail leading straight to them) then copying them, down to the last thread. Google Kardashian fashion rip offs. Hey Kim, go fuck yourself. #killthekardashians”
