Fred Durst Calls Big Day Out Promoter A Fucking Asshole

Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit has used the stage at Soundwave to mouth off at the promoters for the Big Day Out, calling them “fucking assholes”.

Limp Bizkit were back in Australia for the first time since the Big Day Out stampede that caused the death of Jessica Michalik in Sydney.

“That son of a bitch promoter from Big Day Out, that fucking asshole threatened us and forced us to go on stage because he said there’d be riot if we didn’t,” Fred spewed out across the audience at the Brisbane show. “So with police in our dressing room – those fucking assholes with their hands on us pushing us out on to stage. We came out, we played some shit and we lost a human being named Jessica. So as much as we are here to be with you tonight… this is a tribute; a tribute to Jessica. Everything we do in Australia is a tribute to you baby. Let’s hear it for Jess. Her spirit is here today.”

Fred’s version of the truth differs greatly from what was heard at Jessica’s inquest. The inquest found that Durst was “inflammatory and insulting to the security personnel who were engaged in their best efforts to extricate crucially injured patrons from the crowd collapse”.

Durst’s venomous statement was captured on camera from an audience member. Watch his warped view of the world here:
