Sad Reacts Only: World Responds to Chester Bennington’s Suicide

Whilst most of the world is reacting with shock and sadness at the news of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington‘s suicide today, Korn‘s Brian ‘Head’ Welch has labelled it ‘cowardly.’

In a post to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter the musician and author wrote:

“Honestly, Chester’s an old friend who we’ve hung with many times, and I have friends who are extremely close to him, but this is truly pissing me off! How can these guys send this message to their kids and fans?! I’m sick of this suicide shit! I’ve battled depression/mental illness, and I’m trying to be sempethetic, but it’s hard when you’re pissed! Enough is enough! Giving up on your kids, fans, and life is the cowardly way out!!! Not trying to be insensitive… I’m just having an emotional day. Love you Chester. And Chris.”

Fans have reacted as expected:
