Kürzlich kam es bei einem öffentlichen Auftritt von FALL OUT BOY's Pete Wentz zu einem Vorfall zwischen seinem Security Team und einem Zuschauer, der durch unangeehme Zwischenrufe auffiel.
Ein Augenzeuge dazu:
"A guy started calling Pete a sell-out, asking him 'Where's [girlfriend] Ashlee [Simpson]?' and making fun of his hoodie.
They did their last song, walked off the stage and headed toward a side door to go out onto the sidewalk. But that's when the scuffle happened. The crowd surged back, then snapped forward. From my vantage point, I could see Fall Out Boy security was pounding on the guy. The guy was down on floor, shirt ripped, bleeding from ear and nose. There was a lot of blood."
Wentz streitet ab, dass der Vorfall aus Böswilligkeit geschah, sondern vielmehr aus Selbstschutz:
"The truth is on the way out the door I had to pass directly next to the guy and I knew it, so I kept my head down and walked out. As I did, the guy reached out and grabbed me and said something I couldn't really hear — it was a glorious use of the English language, though," he continued. "As he grabbed me, I punched him. Yell all you want at me, say whatever, but in a situation like that I will defend myself. After that, of course, it got chaotic, [but] we have several independent witnesses that gave statements saying he grabbed me first ... I am not worried over the outcome, as I was clearly in the right. Anything anyone else is saying or writing is simply not true."
