Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett fumed at ‘disrespectful’ tweets about Taylor Hawkins’ death

Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflet has expressed his dislike of “disrespectful” Twitter users attempting to claim the cause of the death of the band’s late drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Hawkins, who was 50, died in March while touring with the American rock band. He was found in a hotel room in Colombia and the cause of death was determined to be circulatory collapse.

As a guest on a recent episode of The Plug with Justin Jay Podcast, Shiflett articulated his frustration with online comments surrounding his late bandmate.

“This one is very different because of the public site and there’s so much internet sleuthing that people do, especially right after his death,” Shiflett said.

“All these Twitter private investigators… it’s all wrong. They are wrong about everything and that was really weird to watch.”

The guitarist went on to explain that while he has some sympathy for people’s curiosity, many of the allegations and rumors were “disrespectful”.

“Taylor was this big character and he meant a lot to millions of people around the world, so on one hand I’m fascinated by it, but it’s like so much of what I’ve seen out there is so completely wrong,” he said said.

“I mean, there are people out there who say shit like Dave [Grohl] killed Taylor by making him get the COVID vaccine. It just sucks. It’s like, ‘Ah f*ck, you gonna turn it into this? F*ck you!’”

He went on to say that he tends to avoid focusing on those comments, although it upsets him: “I try not to pay attention to any of this stuff because who cares? … It’s just a little bit of Yahoo on Twitter, but it pisses you off because that shit is just disrespectful if you ask me.”

In September, fans flocked to London’s Wembley Stadium for Hawkins’ six-hour tribute concert, at which Grohl was joined by a host of stars including Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson and Teddy Lasso Star Jason Sudeikis.

During the performance, Grohl fans broke down in tears when the musician started crying while performing “Times Like These.”

Grohl broke down mid-song after delivering the lyrics: “Do I stay or do I run away and leave it all behind?” This left his fans at Wembley and those watching the live stream at home feeling just as emotional.
