Fox bans KISS's Gene Simmons from properties

Gene Simmons of KISS at the Azkena Rock Festival in 2010

Moreover, "justice" was quickly served. It is alleged that Simmons "crudely insulted female Fox staffers, taunted them and exposed his chest" in a completely freakish visit.

Citing a "knowledgeable Fox News source", the Daily Beast reports that the Kiss frontman has been barred from Fox's NYC headquarters and from appearing on Fox News and Fox Business Network shows after a Wednesday visit that reportedly concluded with Simmons' photo being displayed at the building's entrance with "do-not-admit" instructions.

Of course, Simmons - along with original band members Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss - will be forever remembered in the annals of rock and roll history for his over-the-top stage presence.

The Daily Beast reports that the trouble started on November 15, when Simmons stopped by to tape interviews and appearances promoting his new financial self-help book, On Power.

Simmons reportedly shouted, "Hey chicks, sue me!" before revealing his chest and stomach, telling "Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes", and mocking onlookers' intelligence, a source told the Daily Beast.

He took a step deeper into the muck when he added, "Okay, I'm a powerful and attractive man, and what I'm about to say is deadly serious". "From the time we're young, we have testosterone. I'm not validating it or defending it. Guys need to be trained from their very, very young ages from their mothers and their loved ones that half the world's population are female, and they need to be treated with respect". Such decision the management made in connection with the indecent behavior of the musician.

Maria Bartiromo, who hosts "Mornings with Maria", asked Simmons to comment on charges of sexual assault against Hollywood filmmaker Harvey Weinstein.

Not long after the interview, Simmons chose to demonstrate exactly what he meant when he crashed a Fox staff meeting rather than go into the room where he was supposed to do an interview with FoxNews.com's entertainment section, a source told the Daily Beast.
