Former KISS Member Peter Criss Say He Doesn't Hate Jews

Peter Criss has shot down accusations of anti Semitism made by his former KISS bandmate Paul Stanley. In his memoir, Face the Music: A Life Exposed, the guitarist says that Criss and Ace Frehley were jealous of his and Gene Simmons' work ethic, turning their jealousy into race hate:

"Ace and particularly Peter felt powerless and impotent when faced with the tireless focus, drive and ambition of me and Gene. As a result, the two of them tried to sabotage the band - which, as they saw it, was unfairly manipulated by money-grubbing Jews."

Speaking with TMZ, Criss says that Stanley's claims are preposterous. He added that he is a supporter of all religions, including the Jewish faith.

Criss told TMZ that he does not plan on pursuing libel claims against Stanley.
