I doubt there is any backlash. 

...there's been nothing but backlash in this very thread, not to mention literally every social media source they've posted it on :lol:

Has anyone tried switching Fernando off and then switching him on again?

Hopefully it will come with little plastic figures of all of the GN'R members past-and-present, all 700 of them. We can play little games where we run DJ Ashba over.  

I mean, if you want to buy a toy truck with 'guns n roses' printed on the side, then go for it. You'll probably never get laid ever again if you leave it around the house, but there we go.

I cannot believe there are still some people brown humping this pathetic brand and making fudgy nonsensical never ending excuses.

Fernando saw the replies on facebook and elsewhere, got spooked and swiftly added the charity thing. It is as clear as day.

It is not a minor thing to omit, the recipient of your $25 haha. ''Is it going into Rose's pocket or a corona charity?''. Not exactly a small detail that is liable to be forgotten!

Some of you guys make me laugh, as if anybody in this band ever gave a fuck about what anybody thought.  Maybe you guys haven't been paying attention the last 30 years 🤔 but this band has never shied away from expressing their opinions, and clearly everybody in the band is strongly against Trump.  

 

Also fuck Trump.

 

The people who also say leave the politics out of music also make me laugh, as if politics haven't been in music for well, forever.  I'm proud of the guys for standing up for what they believe in and not hiding away like some pansy ass pussies afraid to let their voice be heard.  

 

If shipping wasn't 10 bucks I would consider getting this shirt

Don’t forget UMG’s/Bravado whatever it is cut...that definitely isn’t hitting charity. 
 

If your tour is canceled and the promoter hasn’t handed out refunds yet, maybe wait on peddling the merch. In fact better idea. Provide an experience and give something back to the fanbase such as something on YouTube. Then post shirt links

You haven't looked at the comments section on the facebook post then?

Haven't seen myself, but what sort of backlash? People criticizing the anti-trump messages or people criticizing the general tastelessness?

I hate to keep making posts here but what's the timer for? Another poorly designed piece of shit...I mean merch?

(Serious question though, what is the timer for?)

What timer?

Oh... I saw it now. I guess that's the time the t-shirt will be for sale.

The majority of the comments on fb are along the lines of wtf is this/what does it mean/what "45" stands for.

The critical comments are mostly either about the shirt being in bad taste or generally about the band/TB releasing only merch etc.

I didn’t get the 45 reference. I’m assuming it’s because of that video. I think Trump is hilarious but the shirt is cool. And nobody would get the reference at all.

Yeah, the 45 reference is hard to get unless one is familiar with US politics (the media that have reported it so far got it).

I didn't know there was an entry on urban dictionary:

Team Brazil is the worst, sure. But Axl, Slash and Duff are responsible in the end. The let all of this happen because of greed, lazyness, ignorance and/ or because they don't care.

Duff also posted it to his Instagram stories. And I think I saw an Instagram ad for it too

Now we've done it. Tour for another ten years and no new album.

Maybe the next tour will be called COVID-45 World Tour. If it get Axl spitting fire and dedicating Double Talking Jive to Trump, I am in!

In all seriousness, I hate trump as much as the next person who pays attention, but this is in poor taste in my book.  There are classier and more effective ways to help others out

For the first time i'm somewhat embrassed to be a fan of this band.

I hope they asked Paul if it's ok to use his song for a shitty shirt, if not, he should file a lawsuit.

Simply disgusting shirt/message. This band can t be taken serious any more. So they decided to remove "One in a million" cause they are politically correct now :lol: and then release a covid shirt with "Live and Let die" while Corona killed worldwide more people than a war?

They could have put "Patience"  or "Don t cry" on it if charity was their intention. IF

Pathetic. Fernando is a total loser but the other ones are on the same level if no one of the band stands up against this bullshit.

I hope he does sue them. I am embarrassed too to be a fan. Disgusting what they have become
