‘Modern Family’ actor Eric Stonestreet clashes with Kiss musicians over his mother

Eric Stonestreet went on a Twitter rant against Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, accusing the rockers of being rude to his mother on an airplane.

The “Modern Family” star, 42, went on a social media rant against the rockers after an incident between his mother and Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

“I think Gene Simmons is on my flight,” Stonestreet’s mother, Jamey Stonestreet, texted the actor. “DO you think I should give him a kiss?”

“Turns out both Gene Simmons AND Paul Stanley were on my mom’s flight to Kansas City,” Stonestreet wrote. “Gene tried to bully my mom out of her seat and when she said no, he said, it’s ok, I just bought the plane and then asked her for HER autograph. -dick move.”

“The Paul called her ‘Aunt Bee’ -dick move,” Stonestreet continued. “I can’t wait to run into you two old ass makeup wearing f—s and tell you in person; you should have been nicer to my mom,” Stonestreet said.

Simmons and Stanley then took to Twitter to refute the actor’s account of what transpired.

“Someone posted a story which is blatantly untrue,” Simmons tweeted. “The essence of it was that we were mean to somebody’s mother. It’s simply untrue.”

Stanley also replied: “I actually waited so your mom could get off first,” he wrote. “The rest-A misunderstanding of joking. I apologize anyway. Good son.”

Stonestreet replied graciously. “Thank u for that,” he wrote. “She did tell me you let her go first. I will tape my glow in the dark Kiss posters back together now.”

Adding, “OK @genesimmons. Take care. I assure u, I will have a stern talk with my mom about making up stories,” he wrote. “Old people, ya know? OUR apologies:)”
