I've not really payed attention to Twitter at all in years, but the tweet about how his drum parts can't possibly be that hard sound more like he's annoyed at the fans who say they miss him being with the band, and not necessarily a jab at Jason. The other tweets posted above are pretty tactless. Overall, seems to me like he's not too happy that so many years after leaving the band he still hears about it from fans on a daily basis. Maybe he just needs a nice long break from social media, I dunno.

I think he needs to stop being such a narcissist and appreciate that the fans he likes to shit all over nowadays are the very people who gave him the fame and comfort that he enjoys every day, allowing him to live a life of luxury and having fun while getting paid for it.

If anything at all, he needs a break from being up on his pedestal of self-importance for a little while.

It's not that he owes anyone anything in particular as far as going the extra distance, but making an extra effort to criticize, attack, and outright mock his fanbase is beyond shitty and just goes to show what kind of a human being he truly is.

These two are especially salty:

I love OLP now and then. I do hate to see this kind of stuff, but I'm not going to judge the guy. A good friend of mines Mom once told me "you have to love someone before you can truly hate them" and those words really stuck with me, and I think might apply here. There are hurt feelings and hurt people often respond emotionally, I don't think he's a bad guy.

As a fan it's hard to reconcile, I've met Raine twice and he's such a down to earth sweetheart, who went out of his way to chat and take photos, if he's really this bad he's got mad PR skills.
