Randy Blythe 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.
