It’s hard to decide what’s more disturbing here, the claim by Ralph Rieckermann that he attended a snuff party or the breathtaking cynicism of TMZ’s report. The former bassist with German shit-metal titans the Scorpions was approached by the celebrity “news” service and asked if was heading to a fetish party.
Rieckermann’s incredible response can be seen below.
Instead of taking Rieckermann’s claims to the police—and God only knows what Rieckermann witnessed at a second party that made him want to "throw up"—TMZ threw in a few Auschwitz jokes and used the clip for click-bait. And then, er, so did I.
Ralph Rieckermann joined the Scorpions in 1993 and left the band 10 years later, but you all knew that.
