At a budget meeting held in the Litchfield County town last month, Zombie’s wife Sheri spoke out against the Hollow Park Skatepark, telling officials she, her husband, and some of their neighbors find the recreational area to be “a significant noise pollutant.”
The skate park has now had its hours reduced. Thanks a lot Grandpa! But according to Rob’s Facebook page, no matter what ANY other Facebook pages say or local articles, he so does NOT hate children.
Total bummer, dude. And a lot of his Facebook fans also find this a bummer.
So listen people, no one better say Rob Zombie hates kids or skaters. Or else “marketing teams” should make them apologize. Like this dude:
And this one:
And this one:
I wonder if I will have to apologize for calling Rob a sanctimommy but I love the idea of like, Rob Zombie being all know-it-allsy and telling local parents that their kids are making too much noise and how he thinks that this skate park issue should be handled differently. Many of his fans have suggested he donate to the skate park and have some quieter ramps constructed :
And some others think that Rob is being kinda babyish:
The for real sad part about all this is that the kids are actually for real bummed their skatepark is now operating under the hours of 10 to five daily and closed on Sundays. On a website for the park, one of the local kids wrote:
My name is Tristan and I am one of the kids who skate at the Woodbury Skate Park. I am sorry that the park noise is bothering you but I wanted to let you know what the park means to me.
The park means everything to me. I am 15 years old and it provides me with a way to exercise and stay healthy, an outlet when I am stressed and a place to hang out with my friends after school and on weekends.
Before the park was built, my friends and I were skating in the street, which was not safe, or at the town buildings, which upset the local police. We worked hard to have the park built and raised money for over a year to pay for it. We keep it clean, safe and drug-free.
A lot of mean things have been said but I want you to know that was not done by the kids of the park. We know you don’t hate kids or skaters and that you just want some peace and quiet when you aren’t on the road or making movies.
And they also filmed a video:
I know what it’s like Rob Zombie. As a mom of a skater I know kids can be loud and on occasion I have also had to yell at my kid to keep it down, but it isn’t like these kids are skating where people are walking or you know, on the streets and getting into all sorts of trouble. On the other hand, the park in the video looks pretty small and as some others have said, couldn’t you install some better windows in your home that block out noise or have a fundraiser to get some quieter ramps for the park? There must be a solution! Skateboarding is not a crime, especially in an area designated for this purpose.
