Corey Taylor Ejects Shitty Fan, Consoles the Guy’s Girlfriend by Telling Her to “Get a Better Dude”
Man, Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is not afraid of anyone, including his own fanbase. Dude slapped the phone out of a texting concertgoer’s hand and came out openly in support of Black Lives Matter. His latest escapade? Ejecting an asshole fan, and then having the gall to speak to the dude’s girlfriend telling her to leave him.
The ejection happened earlier this month during a Slipknot show in Toronto, when Corey announced to a dude up front, “You don’t show me shit, you little pussy.” He then promptly had security take the dude out. Check out video of the incident below:
Man, what the fuck is with people coming to concerts, going up front, and acting like seven pounds of Fromunda cheese? Like the dude who spit on Tom Araya. Why make the effort to get to the front row just so you can be a dick?
Now, in a recent interview with Q103 in Albany, Taylor has said he only regrets having to eject the guy’s girlfriend as well.
Taylor describes what got the guy kicked out as “nothing I can say on the radio” (though Slipknot fans on Reddit claims the guy was hurling insults, flipping Taylor off, and attacking random people in the crowd for no reason), but then went on to say:
“He was showing some serious disrespect. What you’re seeing is the culmination of me trying to ignore it for the entire show, and finally getting to the point where I’m like, ‘We’re not doing this any more. I’ve been doing this for 20 years now – I’m not doing that.
“The thing that sucked, though, was the girl that was with him was a fan, and she had to leave because he was her ride. So he gets pulled, and he’s acting like, ‘Oh, I don’t know what happened. I don’t know why I’m getting kicked out.’ I’m, like, ‘You’re an idiot, and we all know why you’re getting kicked out.’ And then his girl is, like, ‘But… What… I… Okay, I’ve gotta go.’ I mean, I felt bad for her, but, honey, get a better dude. That dude you’re with sucks at life.”
I suppose you could get offended at Taylor for telling this woman who she should or shouldn’t date, but I dunno, this is pretty hilarious to me. You can do a lot of things in the front row at a Slipknot show that aren’t acceptable in everyday life and will not get you kicked out.
So if Corey Taylor singles you out to get booted, it has to be for a good reason. So to the ejected fan’s girlfriend, your dude better be pretty fucking funny for you not to give him the boot. And there are so many single bloggers out there!
