Ex-Scorpions Drummer James Kottak: Amount of Interracial Couples in Commercials ‘Is Not Reality’
Some people truly have no filter on social media. James Kottak of Kingdom Come and formerly of the Scorpions has gone off in a tweet about the amount of interracial couples in commercials, insinuating that it "is not reality."
"You know I am sick of every other commercial having interracial couples...this is not reality. It is Hollywood shoving it down our throat. I don’t have one friend or friends who live in this category...just saying," Kottak said in a tweet, followed by a bunch of animal and American flag emojis.
The drummer has gone off on several other controversial tangents in the past on Twitter as well, especially regarding climate change — "For those of us who lived through it, we were told an ice age was coming in 1978/79. Who froze? I am all about ‘reduce reuse recycle repurpose’ the rest is political b.s...same now . I recycle every piece of paper, containers, and have done since I was 9 years old...I encourage."
Kottak was the drummer for the German group Scorpions from 1996 until he was let go in 2016 due to his reluctance to get sober. Two years prior, he was sentenced to jail in Dubai for drunkenness, derogatory comments toward Islam and public exposure.
