On Friday, Lamb of God’s tour stopped in Medford, Oregon, and the crowd there were dicks.
Frontman Randy Blythe, after the show, took to Instagram to blast the disrespectful Oregonians.
Lamb of God asked for a minute of silence Friday, to honor the 26 people slaughtered by Adam Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut, that same day, and the fucks in Oregon couldn’t honor the band’s request.
“…I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn’t played. We, Lamb of God, asked for sixty seconds of silence during our 1st set break to honor the dead children & teachers in CT,” writes Randy.
“It seemed appropriate — it’s a goddamned national TRAGEDY. Most of the crowd complied, but several didn’t, some cursing & even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage. I am so disgusted right now- if you were one of those who wouldn’t shut up for SIXTY LOUSY SECONDS to honor twenty MURDERED CHILDREN — go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of shit.”
“Your parents are obviously pieces of shit too, because they raised you to behave with no dignity. To the fans who were respectful, I thank you. I am also sorry you have so many goddamned assholes in your community.
“You should do something about that. This shit would not have happened at a lamb of god show where I live, & that is a FACT. We have more manners. I am just disgusted. Thoroughly DIGUSTED. You yelling people give metal a band name-screw that, you give humanity a bad name.
“Grow up. Your parents should have beaten some manners into you, you savage little beasts. With that I will go to bed, say a prayer for those suffering, & hope for a better day tomorrow, because tonight SUCKED.”
That’s fucked up. And I like Oregon. I may never go back now.
