Gene Simmons has had enough. The legendary KISS demon dialed in to TMZ to tell America to calm down, stop complaining, eat a pizza and ride it out.

"All of us have a burden. Whats the burden? The burden ain't much of anything," Simmons said in the video call. "We should all shut up and get over ourselves. That includes yours truly."

The rocker goes on to explain how "our grandparents" went overseas and fought in World War II, resulting in millions of deaths.

"While you're busy eating your pizzas and your burgers and all that stuff, there are people who are risking their lives to bring food to you at home," SImmons continued, shouting out police, firefighters and health care workers on the front lines.

"What are we complaining about? You get to stay at home and do nothing while people are risking their lives to make your life better. This will get better. I promise you."

The rock demon took a moment to address "the well-meaning religious people" of America: "You're not listening to the same God I am. God is saying STAY HOME," he shouted. "Don't go to church!"
