was furious when fans at a Lamb Of God
show didn't take part in a minute of silence for the Connecticut victims.
The band were performing at Medford, Oregon when Blythe asked the audience to take part in a short silence to honor the 26 women and children who died in a massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that day.
While many in the crowd respectfully took part in the silence, others ignored Blythe's request. Later, Blythe shared his disappointment on Instagram (via Antiquiet
"I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn't played
," Blythe said. "Most of the crowd complied, but several didn't, some cursing & even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage.
"I am so disgusted right now - if you were one of those who wouldn't shut up for SIXTY LOUSY SECONDS to honor twenty MURDERED CHILDREN - go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of sh-t.
"To the fans who were respectful, I thank you. I am also sorry you have so many goddamned aholes in your community. You should do something about that. This sh-t would not have happened at a lamb of god show where I live, & that is a FACT.
"I am just disgusted. Thoroughly DISGUSTED. You yelling people give metal a band name-screw that, you give humanity a bad name.
