Tommy Lee and Brandon Lee Celebrated Father’s Day by Beefing on Social Media
I think most of us assumed that Tommy Lee and his oldest son, Brandon, had kissed and made up following a physical altercation earlier this year when Lee the Elder refused to help the Los Angeles D.A. prosecute Lee the Younger. But we assumed wrong! In true Father Knows Best fashion, Tommy took to social media on Sunday — Father’s Day! — to call both of his sons “assholes” while reassuring everyone that he’s not beating himself up (no pun intended) over their behavior because it’s really the fault of their mother, Pamela Anderson:
“Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bullshit for the public to read…. I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy! I’m so tired of the fake shit I keep seeing all over IG… let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok? My father taught me to respect everyone and everything and to take care of those that I loved. He taught me to appreciate my possessions, and to be grateful for the things I was given. I’ve fucked up at times but I’ve always bounced back. When I had a child, my first child, I wanted to instill those same virtues into him. Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things. If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind. I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood …. I love my boys but they can be assholes too…and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music)”
Then, faster than you can say “Don’t be too hard on yourself, Tommy!”, Brandon fired back, accusing Lee of absentee fathering:
“Remember what happened last time you said this shit? 🤔 night night 😴 You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. If you think we’re so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me. Once again painting our family in a negative light. Who the fuck are you? Just move on dude… WE ALL HAVE. ✌🏼or I’ll put you right back to fuckin sleep 😴”
Brandon then apparently posted a video of his father unconscious after Brandon knocked him out cold; that video was soon removed and replaced with this message:
Obviously, not being a member of this Cleaver-esque clan, I have no idea who is actually responsible for what, but I will say this: Tommy continues to go out of his way to make himself look bad. Brandon is twenty-two and Tommy is fifty-five and Tommy is the one who keeps coming off as a child. What he really needs is someone to tell him to just keep his trap shut. Sheesh.
P.S. What the fuck is “Honest Guy music”? I did a search and only came up with a bunch of meditation videos created by some company called The Honest Guys. Did you think Tommy Lee was encouraging us all to be mindful? Can Tommy Lee spell ‘mindful’?
