Corey Taylor's polarizing new mask — a collaboration with horror FX pioneer Tom Savini and his team — has met with backlash from more than a few Maggots, including some who have likened it to a milk jug, inspiring a series of memes the singer himself has had fun with on Twitter. Far from disappointed that some fans don't like the mask, however, Taylor seems to be relishing the controversy. In a new interview with Jason Rockman of iHeartRadio Canada at July 8th's Festival d'été de Québecin Quebec City, Canada, he explained, "It's disturbing. That's kind of what you go for, really.
"Everybody was complaining about it at first," he said, as reported by Blabbermouth. "And they were, like, 'It's hard to look at.' And I was, like, 'That was the point. I didn't want you to be comfortable looking at it, man.' I'm not up here trying to look like My Little Pony or anything like that. It's ridiculous. Nothing against the Bronies — it's a strong organization." Bronies, if you're not familiar with the term, are adult male fans of My Little Pony, as documented in the eye-opening 2012 documentary of the same name.
