Following speculation from January 14th 2021 that KING 810’s David Gunn was at the January 6 protests in which supporters of Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, the frontman has confirmed that he was in attendance in Washington – “on the steps” of the building – claiming that he was there to film the band’s next video.
“I’m the singer of the most hated band in America… where else would I be?” he said on Instagram, sharing a statement in response to a news story on Metal Injection that asked: ‘Is This KING 810’s David Gunn Spotted At The Capitol Protests?’
“Sorry to disappoint everyone but I cannot also admit to being a racist, bigot, homophobe, sexist, fascist, alt right (or whatever you whack jobs are on this week) etc. etc,” David continues. “I appreciate the compliments on my jacket however it is not for sale (altho our new album is)…
“I was not trying to keep this under wraps,” he adds. “As you can see I’m swagged the fuck out with no mask in front of 100 cameras because I’m doing nothing wrong. The Feds have phoned me already and there isn’t a single image of me ‘rioting’ or going inside the building. I’m not as dumb as my hairstyle suggests.
“I couldn’t care less if you stop following me or stop listening to my music because I never cared to begin with. (see Red Queen)”
