Slayer received ample backlash online when singer Tom Araya thought it would be funny to share a photoshopped image of the band with Donald Trump.

He went a step further by criticising "snowflakes commenting their distaste for the new president." But now, the band has distanced themselves from Tom's political antics and even shared a statement with Rolling Stone:

"As was verified by Tom, this was his post, is not something the band would have posted if asked, and does not belong on a Slayer social page. We all have our personal opinions, some of which we have voiced in the past, but Slayer has never endorsed any political party or any candidate, and the band intends to keep it that way."

Great PR.
