TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS Calls Iconic Horror Writer STEPHEN KING 'A Loser'

June 5, 2019

Tim "Ripper" Owens has slammed Stephen King as a "loser," saying that the famed horror writer has "lost" him as a fan.

Earlier today, the former JUDAS PRIEST frontman posted a GIF of two NHL fans with paper bags over their heads and tweeted: "Wow reading Stephen King tweets! Hahahahaha what a loser!!! This is the fans he has lost, including me. Hahahahaha. At least something he is writing know [sic] is scary"

After a Twitter user responded, "Checking the Stephen King vs. Ripper success meter......", Owens fired back: "Who said anything about success. I don't like his tweets! If you don't like mine, GOOD fucking bye"

Owens, who regularly tweets in support of President Donald Trump's policies, was likely objecting to King's incessant criticism of America's 45th president.

The writer hasn't kept his opinion of Trump a secret. This past December, King called for a bipartisan effort to remove the president. More recently, King said that it was "impossible" to watch the new HBO mini-series "Chernobyl" without thinking about Trump. "Like those in charge of the doomed Russian reactor, he's a man of mediocre intelligence in charge of great power β€” economic, global β€” that he does not understand," King tweeted.

Back in 2016, Owens weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, saying that Trump was perhaps what America needed to move the country forward. Claiming that he wasn't a Democrat or a Republican ("I'm in the middle," he said),Owens explained that he couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton because of "the way they tax people." He went on to say that America "had eight years of really bad" under President Barack Obama and opined that "a lot of American people" were "just trying to figure out something other than what [Obama] was doing."

Owens revealed in a 2012 interview that he was voting for Mitt Romney in that year's election.

On May 20, Owens tweeted "Investigating the investigators... I LOVE IT" in an apparent response to reports that Attorney General William Barr was carrying out Trump's wishes to "investigate the investigators" who launched the years-long investigation into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia.
