James Hetfield Quitting Announcement Stuns Metallica Fans

Metallica frontman James Hetfield has quit Instagram, deleting his account just days after entering rehab after a relapse for the first time since the St. Anger recording sessions in the early 2000’s when Jason Newsted left the band. Jason Newsted made a major announcement yesterday.

cluedo_fuckin_sucks posted on Reddit, “This could be good news. Hear me out; in rehab, especially for big names, they’re typically not allowed their phones or social media in order to ‘brag’ about their rehabilitation (see: Bam Margera), so this being deactivated could indicate James is back out of treatment and adjusting back into life at home. Ergo, health all okay for now.

Alternatively, could be an assistant doing so off of his recommendation since he never used it anyway. Just trying to spin a positive light on it.”

Howard Stern recently revealed why James Hetfield really entered rehab. captain_propaganda wrote, “James did the right thing, I too am quitting reddit especially, the daily front page news, though entertaining and addictive, is also mind cancer. Social media is the modern day plague that is set to kill probably over 10 million people in the next two decades due to mental illness induced by political propaganda here. Sad but true. It’s what the pharmaceuticals want anyhow, everyone buy buy buy the meds! It’s Trump’s artistic deal I tell you. the unwashed masses on social media, such low hanging fruit. Try it folks, you’ll feel great, go play outside.”

earthwormjim91 said, “He’s done it before. He deleted his Kik and Insta a while back (I want to say 4 or 5 years ago), with the announcement that it was getting too out of hand with his addictive personality.

At least with Kik, he would try to respond to everyone that messaged him (I actually had a short convo with him a few years ago on there) and it was really taking too much time away from his family and stuff.”

A crazy Jason Newsted bar photo was recently revealed. AloneGarden posted, “I wouldn’t worry too much. He probably just wants to keep a low profile at the moment. Many rehabilitation places encourage you to not use your phone at all except to communicate with relatives. I believe he also said at times that he wasn’t a huge Instagram guy because he got too sucked into it (social media itself can be addicting for sure).”

  • Why the misleading title? You had me sad when I first read it.

    • Murphy’s Magnet

      No kidding! What an asshole thing to do.

      This is one website I will never visit again.

      • Athelstan BastardKing

        You can ignore this site for anything important. All Brett does is report on other, more serious, reports. He’s lame. Usually reporting shit we have known for a long time.
        You can ignore this site and never know it.

          • Athelstan BastardKing

            Yes. Brett is dishonest and desperate. Just ignore him. Nothing to see here.

  • will Grello

    Fake news fuck you. This why everyone hates the shitty fake news media.

  • Rob Cowie

    Fuck you

  • Jordan Verley

    What is wrong with you, Brett ?

  • Mark McCourt

    Stupid! Why would anyone continue to read a story like that once they figure out it’s not the band he is quitting. Myself I would have read the whole story but it really pissed me off to think that a person would mislead the public like that. Are you that poor of a journalist that you need to title a story like that. Say something about this matalica! Don’t let this fool get away with this shit. Ííííí89

  • jpagel

    Shittiest of shit titles. How did this egregious misleading title get approved!!? Retract this shit and offer an apology you pseudo-journalist shitposters

    • Athelstan BastardKing

      He won’t because he has no intellectual integrity. Or dignity.

  • Darren Pauli

    Wanker.

  • doubleDizz

  • F D

    FAKE GARBAGE NEWS. F-U. END THE FED HANG ALL THE CENTRAL BANKERS.

  • Teo Orion

    Fuck this site. FUCK IT!

  • Absolute Xero

    This is the type bullshit that effects real journalism. Apparently Brett lacks the creative forethought with a better headline to coincide with the actual content of his article. Where did you learn to write? A half truth hook headline met with a less than mediocre article…

    • Johnny Utah

      He isn’t writing anything. He’s copying and pasting quotes.

  • dblbass

    DON’T APPROVE IT…. YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE! IF I WERE THE OWNER… I’D NOT APPROVE IT EITHER…. BECAUSE I SPEAK NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH THAT EVERYONE ALSO SEES!!

  • dennis_robert_walter

    More click-bate, I guess it better then your obsession with Frances Bean!

  • Christopher

    Fuck you assholes!! I came close to having a fucking panic attack and I now have a crack in my screen because of that shit title! What the fuck is wrong with you?!

  • Scotty Harris

    Brett gets paid for this filth …. I could write articles with better integrity and you would have more subscribers than you ever had. Brett, you’re Fired.

  • Padriac Riley

    The title had my hopes up for a minute that the ever increasing focus group created musical shitfest that Metallica has become since the Black album was finally over.

  • linknight

    Fuck you with that title you sacks of shit

  • Athelstan BastardKing

    Who reads reposts of various twits as competent news analysis?
    Lame as always, Brett.

    I wish you would do better. You can.

  • Jake Nelson

    I came here for the hate comments

  • Stefan

    Wow lamest fuckin story of the year. Done forever with this site.

  • cookied90

    What a bullshit tabloid headline. This rag has just proved that it’s just that… a fucking tabloid rag. I don’t care that much about Metallica, great band but not my thing, but to throw this shitty headline up, you fucked with the fans. What a bunch of assholes. Fuck you, you’re going to lose a lot of readers over this.

  • Xavier McHenry

    Life, it seems to fade away
    They took my Instagram today
    Feeling lost, this can’t be real
    Taking pictures of how I feel
    Emptiness is filling me
    With emotions I can’t tweet
    Growing darkness, I need a friend
    Social media will be my end….

  • John Phelps

    Maybe they can write better music on drugs? Been garbage since St. Crap. DM was OK.
