KISS front man and celebrated rock 'n roll artist Gene Simmons joins the likes of Mark Wahlberg in stating that it's about time Hollywood celebrities shut up about politics.

Going on Fox Business's Making Money with Charles Payne, Simmons had some harsh words about his fellows living in fame speaking out against President-elect Donald Trump's win in November.

“I think celebrities should basically shut their pie holes and do what they do best—act, sing, tap dance... all that kind of stuff,” Simmons told the FOX Business Network’s Charles Payne.

Simmons, a former school teacher who plays bass in the legendary rock band that is known for songs “Beth” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” added: “President-elect Trump is the president. You can like it, you cannot like it. He’s the new president, that’s the end of the story.”

Simmons went on to talk about the wisdom of the founding fathers in creating the electoral system in order to circumvent problems that come with the popular vote, and urged that if people don't like it then they can vote in politicians that will change it. As Simmons highlighted earlier in the interview, however, the same people protesting the election results are the same who didn't vote at all.
