Tommy Lee Says Nikki Sixx Unfollowed Him on Twitter After Final Mötley Crüe Show
Published May 24, 2016We've all got people who we can't stand on social media, but rather than hurt anyone's feelings, we usually opt to use the mute button. Instead of keeping the peace, however, Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has proven rather ruthless on Twitter. As such, he straight up unfollowed Tommy Lee on Twitter the day after their band disbanded.
In a heartbreaking interview with Rolling Stone, Lee revealed that his half a million current Twitter followers could not mask the sting of Sixx smashing that unfollow button after their final Mötley Crüe gig on New Year's Eve of 2015.
"I think fucking Nikki unfollowed me on fucking Twitter, like, the next day," Tommy said. "I was like, 'Wow. Okay, dude.'"
Rolling Stone asked Lee if he knew what would have led to Sixx's cruel unfollow. "There's always been issues," he said.
We also happen to think it's because Lee tweets too many Instagram links. That's just clunky, bro!
The band's lack of social skills extends beyond the reaches of the Internet, too, as Lee says they didn't even say goodbye to one another after their final show.
"It's kind of strange, man," he said. "We're a fucking weird band. Even stranger, after the final night, we had a big party backstage on New Year's Eve, and I never saw the other guys. We never even said 'goodbye.' Fucking strange as hell, dude. I mean, what the fuck?"
Mötley Crüe's final tour will be explored with a documentary film. Called Mötley Crüe: The End, it's expected to hit theatres on June 14.
