Megadeth's Dave Mustaine about social media: "Trolls need love too"


Megadeth's Dave Mustaine was recently interviewed by Fox Action News, you can read some excerpts below.


About social media, he said: "The thing with social media is there’s so much dishonesty and anonymity. People will say they’ve met us, they know us. There’s something going round that the singer from Paramore is my niece or something. When they said her name I was like, ‘I don’t know who that is.’ Then I looked it up and I went, ‘Come on!’ Real bright comparison there."

He continued: "You have to have a thick skin. You have to not worry about trolls – because, as funny as this sounds, trolls need love too. You either ignore them or you just kind of love them on them until they wake up or go away. If they see they’re getting in your face, they’re going to keep doing it. So I look at it like this: I treat everybody with as much love and respect as I possibly would want."
