Eric Stonestreet loves him mom. According to Rob Shuter of VH1’s “The Gossip Table,” the “Modern Family” actor went on a social media rant when he felt that Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS had disrespected his mother.
He detailed the incident through screengrabs of his text conversation with his mother that he posted on Instagram.
“I think Gene Simmons is on my flight,” Stonestreet’s mother, Jamey Stonestreet texted the actor, “Do you think I should give him a kiss?”
"Turns out both Gene Simmons AND Paul Stanley were on my mom's flight to Kansas City," Stonestreet wrote. "Gene tried to bully my mom out of her seat and when she said no, he said, it's ok, I just bought the plane and then asked her for HER autograph. -dick move."
"The Paul called her 'Aunt Bee' -dick move," Stonestreet continued. "I can't wait to run into you two old ass makeup wearing f---s and tell you in person; you should have been nicer to my mom," Stonestreet said.
Simmons and Stanley both took to Twitter to refute the account and claim it was overblown. Eventually Stanley did offer apologizes which Stonestreet happily accepted. Simmons has continued to deny any wrongdoing.
