COREY TAYLOR Vows To To Stop Engaging Trolls About Politics On Twitter

Corey Taylor has told U.K.'s Kerrang! magazine that his "New Year's Resolution is to stop engaging trolls about politics on Twitter."

The outspoken SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman, whose disdain for Donald Trump is quite prevalent throughout his latest book, last year's "America 51", said: "Honestly, I would rather take a fucking saw to my own face than deal with that kind of bullshit anymore. It's so unnecessary and pathetic, and I can't take any more of that shit. It's not even that I have a problem with their politics: it's their self-righteous indignation that comes with it.

"For all the harrumphing that the right does about the left being a bunch of snowflakes, they are the ones that are so butthurt about so much shit, it's not even funny," he continued. "I look at them and think, 'I'm not going to sit here and debate a crying child.'

"If there was a button on Twitter that asked, 'Would you like to block with relish?' then that's the one I'd be hitting. They can enjoy their spoilt-brat infancy. I've got kids of my own, without having to deal with kids that I don't need to take care of."

Taylor added: "One message I would impart to Kerrang! readers is this: never stop educating yourself. If something that you believe is right turns out to be wrong, you have to embrace that — you can't just reject that out of spite.

"I'm one of the most wrong people on the planet, and I also have one of the biggest fucking mouths, so it's one of the biggest lessons I've had to learn. It's going to make you a better person to be on the better side of facts than the worst side of fiction."

Taylor confirmed last week that he has been separated from his wife for almost a year and just recently started a new relationship.

Corey married his estranged wife, Stephanie Luby, in November 2009 at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas

The 44-year-old Taylor has two children, a daughter named Angie born in 1992, and a son named Griffin born in 2002, whom he had with his first wife, Scarlett. Taylor married Scarlett in March 2004 and divorced her in early 2007.

STONE SOUR recently announced a new North American tour for early 2018 in support of its current LP, "Hydrograd".

The new dates include a co-headlining tour with HALESTORM that's set to commence on January 27 in Abbotsford, British Columbia, followed by a string of headline shows with support from RED SUN RISING, which get underway on February 16 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
