Travis Barker responds to fans who blasted Kourtney’s Cannibal Corpse shirt

In September, Kourtney Kardashian was spotted rocking a track by death metal band Cannibal Corpse while in Venice with Travis Barker.

In an interview with vogue At the time, Kardashian stylist Dani Michelle said Kourtney borrowed the shirt from Barker’s closet. “Kourt has told me before that her closet is an archive in itself. She can choose any t-shirt to wear and it’s the sweetest, coolest thing ever,” Michelle said.

Even so, the widely circulated photo caused an uproar on social media, with former Cannibal Corpse frontman Chris Barnes taking to Twitter to call out the couple to be “poseurs”.

Now in a new interview with RevolverBarker blasted his of the bride critics when asked about the backlash caused by Kourtney’s clothing choice.

“To talk about it, it’s the most pathetic shit ever,” he said. “Obviously, my fiancee doesn’t listen to Cannibal Corpse, but I do. I grew up loving them. For [someone] mention this in a negative light – fucking lame, you know? She wears it because she is cold. She doesn’t claim to know all the songs. But I do! I bought every album and learned to play every album.

Barker went on to say he’s a big fan of the death metal band, revealing he has a wide selection of Cannibal Corpse merchandise in his wardrobe.

“I have a bunch of Cannibal Corpse T-shirts,” Barker said. “I still love them. I have a bunch of King Diamond t-shirts and rare Slayer shirts because I love those bands. I grew up with them. Even though I’m, you know, everything the world wants to see me as – “Oh, that’s the drummer from blink-182” – actually this guy was playing in a garage with a bunch of speed-metal kids listening to DRI and SOD I enjoyed every fucking minute.

On Friday, the Oscars announced that Barker was among the slate of performers at this year’s Oscars. Airing Sunday, March 27 on ABC, the show will feature an all-star cast featuring Barker alongside Sheila E., Adam Blackstone and Robert Glasper.
