Randy Blythe ‘Disgusted’ by Audience Behavior During Moment of Silence at Lamb of God Show

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe‘s decision to take a moment to honor those lost Friday in the tragic Connecticut school shootings did not meet with the reaction he expected, and the rocker turned to his Instagram account to voice his disgust.

Blythe reports via his Instagram account that during Lamb of God’s performance Friday night in Medford, Oregon, not everyone in the crowd complied with his request for a 60 second moment of silence, which led to his outrage.

He wrote, “I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn’t played. We, Lamb of God, asked for 60 seconds of silence during our first set break to honor the dead children and teachers in Connecticut. It seemed appropriate — it’s a g–damned national tragedy. Most of the crowd complied, but several didn’t, some cursing and even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage. I am so disgusted right now.”

He continued, “If you were one of those who wouldn’t shut up for 60 lousy second to honor 20 murdered children, go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of s—. Your parents are obviously pieces of s— 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 g–damned a–holes in your community. You should do something about that. This s— would not have happened at a Lamb of God show where I live and that is a fact. We have more manners. I am just disgusted — thoroughly disgusted. 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.”

Blythe concluded, “I will go to bed, say a prayer for those suffering, and hope for a better day tomorrow, because tonight sucked.”
