explanation seems really shady...

Oskarr 06/28/12 05:41 PM

Holy shit was and is my reaction. edit -I just read the article, and it definitely is a vague explanation. Still, though, wow.

JesseKilgannon 06/28/12 05:57 PM

Racist much?

CarouselBoy 06/28/12 06:11 PM

Why is that racist? Is it racist that he has tear drops for killing people?

His songs are about how he is a gangster. He raps about killing people, dealing drugs, and other "thug-life" activities all the time...not racist at all. And if it did come across as racist, I'm sorry. I definitely didn't mean for that to happen.

Um...metal artists (especially black and death metal - imagine that) have been known to do some really crazy things.

Edit: Read your explanation. Just because someone calls themselves a "gangsta" doesn't mean anything, when a lot of the time it's just posturing to sell an image.

the seventeenth 06/28/12 06:50 PM

What the hell?

Rysker6 06/28/12 06:51 PM

Wow, I know Randy has had serious problems with alcohol, but he always seemed like such a nice guy. I really hope the best.

subplotofcrows 06/28/12 06:56 PM

It's from some incident 2 years ago when a fan jumped on stage. There was an altercation and the guy died later. Wouldnt really see that as manslaughter.

I know it's just an image that people portray. I meant it as a joke, don't know why people are getting upset over it. Anyways, as a disclaimer: I do not mean to offend anybody of any race or culture with that comment. It was meant as a joke, and if did offend you, I'm sorry

AMackChuck 06/28/12 06:57 PM

I normally pay money to see bands I intend to fight at some point in the show or after. I hope they LAY THIS TO REST /toosoon? #DGAF

Stormsubsides 06/28/12 07:00 PM

Seems shady as fuck...definitely curious to see hows this turns out

Nolessthanblink 06/28/12 07:05 PM

Now he's got something to die for...

hehe

Um no that actually sounds exactly like manslaughter to me:

I take it you aren't sure what the term manslaughter means.

steve187 06/28/12 07:51 PM

god told him to do it

Sloth7 06/28/12 07:52 PM

Nickelback should all be arrested for boring people to death then.

I can't fucking stand people like you. Anytime a negative comment is made against someone who isn't white, you automatically assume it's because of racism and not based on that person's behavior. In way, that is racism. Racist much?

Dre Okorley 06/28/12 08:19 PM

Alright, it's over. You guys keep quoting him and he's probably eating and laughing right now.

jesse_hitz 06/28/12 08:23 PM

holy fuck! wow this is crazy! need to hear more details but wow i'm speechless. He probaly kicked the guy in the head or something along those lines and the guy died later.....sad story. Might not be a lamb of god fan anymore depending on the investigation.

Kind of ridiculous to say that. First of all, it's a very wrongfully executed case in which Randy is caught under foreign laws but even more so, accidents happen. That's a shallow statement to make before anything is proven

He said "depending on the investigation."

Always a treat to see you post.

njiata603 06/28/12 09:20 PM

I really hope Randy is exonerated and can go on with his life. This is really awful, he seems like such a cool dude.

fuckyourscenes 06/28/12 09:22 PM

I really hope he doesn't get off for this.

I mean, there's no reason why he should.

The blood was on the wall so he might as well just admit it.

Yeah, but to say you might not be a fan of the band anymore? Regardless of the outcome, you either are or you're not.

Uhm... there's a huge difference between black metal bands who've burned down churches and a commercial watered down hard rock band. There's a much smaller difference between rappers who commit crime and rappers who don't but rap about it. In fact, many come from the same scene.

The article I had read earlier stated that the man died from unrelated causes and not from injuries sustained from the altercation. What I was saying is that, in that particular context, I don't see how that could be considered manslaughter.

You implying that comment was racist makes your comment racist...

wtfjaked 06/28/12 11:30 PM

I'm curious as to what he did to the fan on stage. Did he throw him off or kick his ass?

Let's be real, all the people quoting his post saying the exact same thing are definitely more annoying at this point.
