John Corabi Says #MeToo Is ‘Getting Out of Control’
Dead Daisies frontman John Corabi expressed concerns that the #MeToo movement was “getting out of control” and that men were becoming increasingly worried about being falsely accused of sexual misconduct.
He also argued that many men were victims of their own #MeToo experiences and cited an example of his own.
“I don’t think anybody should be subject to any sort of harassment in any way, shape or form,” Corabi told the Blaring Out With Eric Blair Show. “But at the same time, it’s making everybody leery about being social and talking. You don’t know anymore.”
He added that his mother "raised me to open the car door, open the door; if you take a woman out you should pick up the check and blah-blah-blah, whatever. And now all this shit is read into it.”

The former Motley Crue singer recalled a recent moment in London when “these girls were at the gig … and I said, ‘Hey, we’re going back to the hotel. We’re gonna party.’ All I meant was we’re partying in the hotel bar. And the minute I said it, they were like, ‘We’re gonna go back and fuck you guys.’ I go, ‘I never said that. I was just asking if you wanted to go back and have a drink with us. So, fuck off now. Whatever.’ So that was my #MeToo moment."
Corabi said he thinks the movement is "making it more difficult for people to talk to each other." “There’s some women in power too," he noted. "If they go, ‘Hey, you want that raise? Lick my ass,’ then, yeah, you’ve had a #MeToo moment, and you should say something to somebody about it. But it’s getting a little out of control. I think everything is, though – everything is getting out of control.”
