The news making rounds all over the social media that American musician and political activist, best known as the bassist and a founding member of the rock band Nirvana, Krist Novoselic passed away is not true. The legendary musician is alive and in good shape.
The information claiming that Krist Novoselic committed suicide is Fake, the public are hereby advised to disregard such information.
The fake news emanated from a new created Facebook page under Krist Novoselic not owned or managed by him. The fake was headlined as “To my husband’s friends and colleagues. With deep pain we want to share with you the death of my husband Krist Anthony Novoselić. He has taken his life, give us an opportunity to process this pain and we will talk to the press. His widow, Darbury Stenderu.”
Please ignore such information, Krist Novoselic is very much alive and doing good.
In the other news, Krist Novoselic had today deactivated his public Twitter account after he reportedly praised Donald Trump’s speech Monday night regarding the George Floyd protests, during which the president said in part that he’s “dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in response to the demonstrations.
Following the speech, police used tear gas to clear protesters from the area before Trump went to visit St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C. to have several photos taken.
According to screenshots circulating on Twitter, Novoselic wrote on his personal Facebook page, which is unverified and currently unavailable to the public, that he felt Trump’s remarks were “strong and direct.”
“I know many of you can’t stand him, however, Trump knocked it out of the park with this speech,” Novoselic’s post read.
“The president should not be sending troops into states — and he legally might not be able to anyway — nevertheless, his tone in this speech is strong and direct,” he added.
Novoselic also blamed “leftist insurrection” for the violence during the protests, musing, “Imagine if so-called ‘patriot militias’ were raising this kind of hell? If this were the case, left wing people would welcome federal intervention.”
“Most Americans want peace in their communities and President Trump spoke to this desire,” the post concluded. “Never mind the legal details that few understand — Trump said he would stop the violence and this speaks to many.”
