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.

Taggarts twitter is a disaster. He goes on about being better, being a bahd and canadianity etc. Then every other tweet after that is shitting on everybody else.

Bitter little man.

Just in case you’re wondering, Taggart is still bitter.

Wow, it’s been 5 years and he still loses sleep over it. I feel sorry for the guy. It’s too bad he can’t find the strength to move on.

I feel sorry for him and the losses that he had in the past few months, but honestly it seems that the split was definitely not "amicable" like they tried to tell to the press....at this point I believe that the band (or at least the frontman :) ) wanted him out, but well who knows

I think it's very clear there must have been an issue between Jeremy and Raine. Duncan's and Steve both speak well of Jeremy, and still interact with him online. I'm not sure what issue Jeremy may have with Jason, but it's clear that he has an issue with Raine. Ultimately I wish both sides would share their story and just rip the band-aid off. I think Twitter posts like that are passive aggressive and in poor taste. I still think highly of Jeremy, because he always treated me well and made me feel welcome at soundcheck or backstage after shows. I'm disappointed that this is how things are handled and have to be.

Can you explain his tweet? What does it mean, I don't get it...

He's implying that Raine is a Lakers fan, and only posing as a Raptors fan...It'd be little funny if it wasn't so sad.

It's so so petty. I also feel like in my experience, besides baseball hats, basketball jerseys are the most common sports clothing people will wear regardless if it's their favorite team.
