So, I have evidence: I got to join Jason Momoa in the mosh/circle pit within the @Metallica Snake Pit 🥰 Right after this, I jumped right in. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience, and after “Whiplash,” Jason even gave me a double high-five 😊 pic.twitter.com/ggIpbbTXiW— Krystal Djarin of Kryze (@donnatroy) August 29, 2023
