I have been on the receiving end of a lot of hate as of late, thanks to a satirical piece I wrote about the girl who died the other day during a Warped Tour set delivered in fantastically shitty fashion by Chelsea Grin.
I made light of this girl’s passing, and it wasn’t my finest moment. But do I regret it? No. The people with half a brain realized what I was trying to do, and the other half can go screw an armadillo. With gingivitis.
The Vans Warped Tour organizers have released an official statement now regarding the girl’s death, which was not directly caused by Chelsea Grin’s music. But…Darwin and whatnot.
“The Vans Warped Tour family is saddened by the death of a patron attending Toronto’s concert at The Flats at Molson Canadian Amphitheater on July 15, 2012,” says the statement.
“The patron collapsed and was immediately attended to by security and venue medical staff. After attempts to resuscitate on the grounds, the patron was later pronounced dead after arriving at a local hospital,” it continues.
“Out of respect for the family, we have not released the name of the patron. The cause of the death has yet to be determined but the Warped Tour and Molson Amphitheater staff are working closely with the authorities to investigate and determine the nature surrounding the incident and will make further details known as they become available. Our deepest condolences are with the patron’s family and friends.”
That’s nice. I smell a lawsuit.
