Wolfgang Van Halen Battles Back Against Online Trolls


Wolfgang Van Halen is seemingly getting fed up with the slams he takes on social media, according to Blabbermouth. The 29-year-old son of Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli has recently taken a beating for a number of completely innocuous posts — which slam his music, his appearance, and especially the decision by his father and uncle, Alex Van Halen, to replace co-founder Michael Anthony on bass when Van Halen reformed with David Lee Roth in 2007.

Wofgang tweeted "Just vacuumed my living room and couch cushions like I'm some kind of adult or something," which prompted a troll to post: "Who cares, your just a nepotism freak."

Wolfgang answered by writing, "You're**. Insult me with proper grammar please. Your mother would be very disappointed. Also, while we're on the topic… Can ANYONE come up with some kind of insult that doesn't involve nepotism/living in the shadow/fat jokes? I feel like that horse has been dead for quite some time. I'm starting to feel like the people who hate me aren't very creative."

Wolfgang recently posted a string of tweets with no explanation, designed to perhaps annoy or mock his followers. The tweets read "Reply to this tweet if you’re cool"; "Quoting doesn’t count, ya sneaky stinkers"; "Wow nobody is gonna reply to this tweet? Guess I’m the only cool one here"; "Oh gosh, I’m just so cool. Look how cool and not sad this is"; and "Don’t reply to this tweet if you’re cool"
