Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin Loses His Sh*t Mid-Concert
More than a decade after the release of their breakthrough album, Come Clean, most of the world has happily forgotten all about Puddle of Mudd. As a result, every couple of years, frontman Wes Scantlin has to do something incredibly stupid to try and remind the world that he exists, because, much like Tinkerbell, if the world doesn’t believe in nu-metal singers, POOF!, they simply disappear.
So: in 2011, Scantlin kept himself in the spotlight by getting busted for tax evasion. Then, last year, he was arrested twice — once for vandalizing his neighbor’s patio with a goddamned chainsaw, and once for domestic abuse and coke possession. Now Scantlin has managed to once again out himself as a big stinky unwiped asshole, this time by having a public meltdown on stage during a concert in Dallas, during which he flipped off the audience and threw his mic into the crowd, which may have resulted in at least one concertgoer being injured.
TMZ broke the news, and have video of the incident. According to the gossip site, the reason for Scantlin’s hissy-fit is not currently known, although “some reports say fans were upset because it appeared he was lip-syncing.”
So this coked-out fuckhead beats his wife, terrorizes his neighbors, doesn’t pay his taxes, treats his fans like shit, and, oh yeah, writes terrible fucking music (to say nothing of the fact that he seems to be lying about his influences, LOL). Man, his obituary is gonna look AMAZING, isn’t it?
