Soundgarden Frontman Chided For “Retarded” Comment

Chris Cornell

Before I get into this story, let’s just say this: Chris Cornell is human. If you cut him, he bleeds. If you punched him, he’d fall down. If your soundcheck interferes with his legendary band’s set, he will call you retarded. He’s just like you and me.

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell talked some shit the other day, and now, he’s catching shit for it.

While playing down in Australia at the “Big Day Out” festival, Cornell discovered something that everyone on the planet already knew: Kanye West doesn’t give a fuck about anyone other than Kanye West.

Cornell inferred that West held up his own set; his subsequent soundcheck drowned out some of Soundgarden‘s performance.

Chris got pissed, and said from the stage: “Sounds like there’s children playing music there, retarded children, retarded as in held back. There’s no other word for it.”

You’re not supposed to say the “R” word, dude.

Since then, Cornell has gone on Twitter to defend his stage banter.

“My comments @ BDO were directed solely at inadequate tour production. Kanye had nothing to do with it! We love him.”

Sure you do.
