Former Mötley Crüe Singer John Corabi Says Pam & Tommy Series Is “So Full of Bulls***, It’s Ridiculous”


Earlier this month, the world saw Sebastian Stan and Lily James take on the roles of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and his then-wife and Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson in Pam & Tommy, a mini-series about the couple’s sex tape scandal. Now, John Corabi, who was Mötley Crüe’s vocalist at the time, has railed against the show, claiming it’s fictional, predatory, and, well, generally overreacting to the whole thing.

Corabi got on his Twitter and posted the following statement with the simple caption, “Just my opinion!”

“OK, just my opinion here on something that’s been bugging me. The Tommy and Pam miniseries on Hulu, is so full of bullshit, it’s ridiculous!!!! I can honestly say about 98 percent of this ‘FICTIONAL’ take on T&P’s life is CRIMINAL.

“I shared 5 years of my life with Tommy and although it was at times INSANITY it’s soooo overblown in this SHIT they call TV entertainment! Tommy never walked around in a Speedo, didn’t act at all they way they portray him, and now I see that Third Eye Blind ‘bumps’ us from a studio, because they’re more relevant???? DID NOT HAPPEN … !!!

 “Apparently, HULU, and all involved in this crock of shit don’t care about how Pam may feel to have to relive this. Or how Tommy’s new wife may feel. Or how about Tommy’s boys seeing this completely overblown story about their parents!!! Shame on EVERYONE involved…,”

Well…okay, look, we hear Corabi that this was a fictionalized account, which, according to Variety, the singer of Third Eye Blind himself has confirmed. It was pretty obviously put in the show to make a big display of hair metal losing ground to alt-rock. And yeah, that’s a shitty way of being like, And then Mötley Crüe were OVER, which obviously isn’t true.

However, Corabi taking the high road at the end feels a little weird when Tommy Lee himself has said he’s stoked about the show. As for Anderson, she obviously has wanted no part in the show, but if she’d wanted it stopped, one assumes she could’ve publicly asked Hulu to leave well enough alone (right? I’m not a lawyer, but I assume if you’re going to depict a celebrity’s scandal onscreen and they came out saying, Please don’t do this, it causes me great pain and I was a victim in it, as Anderson is portrayed in the show, it would halt production).

Long story short, it sounds like Corabi’s taking a moment to say, “Doesn’t anyone care about how John Corabi feels about this show?”
