Some of that time online has been spent debunking photographs that fans take with Gene Simmons lookalikes. Last week, a tweet went viral wherein Simmons pointed out that a woman had been duped into a photograph with an impostor:
No. That's not me. There are a number of guys running around saying they are me. They are not. https://t.co/fbcRIwAHZF— Gene Simmons (@genesimmons) July 22, 2017
Since it's clearly tearing him apart when people post fake photos of him, Simmons was just as quick to reply to another shot taken earlier today. Of course, anyone who has seen The Room will recognize the real source of the image:
I got a real pic of Gene Simmons on a rooftop the other day. pic.twitter.com/m9aSh9EkOy— Justin Yandell (@ShotgunZen) July 25, 2017

Thanks for apologizing, Gene. We wish you were Tommy Wiseau too.
