Staind’s Aaron Lewis Condemns Wes Borland from Limp Bizkit as a “Bougie Motherfucker”

Rebel outlaw maverick millionaire Aaron Lewis (Staind) has retaliated against human tiki statue Wes Borland (Big Dumb Face) for calling him a “dickhead” and “disgusting person” for whom he wishes “nothing but the worst” during an interview this past winter.

During a recent performance in Vegas, Lewis introduced Staind’s hit “Outside” thusly (via The PRP):

“I’m gonna sing this little ditty. I laid it down back in 1999. I don’t remember, but I do know that I walked into the dressing room of Limp Bizkit.

“Wes Borland, who I love dearly, who obviously has some fucking things to say about me. Fuck that motherfucker! I know that I started this with ‘I love him dearly,’ because he’s part of the whole reason that I’m standing here right now in front of you. And I find it really fucked up that…

“This is what happened, okay? This is how it happened. This is exactly how it happened. And I don’t know how the fuck he came up with what he came up with. But I’m gonna tell you what happened.

“I saw this motherfucking bougie motherfucker riding on a fucking golf cart in an airport to his gate. I ended up at a gate really close to him. I went up to him. I said, ‘Wes, what’s up, brother? I miss you. I haven’t seen you in forever. How have you been?’ Good,’ this, that and the other thing. I’m, like, ‘Where are you headed?’ He’s, like, ‘I’m headed home — to Los Angeles.’ And I’m, like, ‘Hey, motherfucker, that ain’t home. Remember — you’re from Jacksonville, fucking Florida.’ That’s how it went down.

“Have you seen the interview? Have you heard the podcast? That’s how it went down.

“Brother, don’t forget where the fuck you’re from. You’re from Jacksonville, Florida. You’re not from Los Angeles, fucking California. You’re from Jacksonville. You’re a real person. You’re not the plastic, fucked-up people that live in fucking Los Angeles.’

“And for that — for that — for reminding my brother, one of the people that are responsible for me standing in front of you this evening, reminding my fucking brother where the fuck he’s from… And now I’m the biggest piece of shit to ever fucking walk the face of the earth. So, you know what? Wes Borland, you bougie motherfucker, I give all the credit to this next song to Fred [Durst]. Fuck you.”

Of course, Lewis left off the part of the story that actually, and understandably, pissed-off Borland:

“I’ve lived in L.A. longer than any other city in my life… I could not believe the audacity, and just like pretentiousness—especially for someone that acts like they’re like a country boy now and they’re from Illinois.”

In Lewis’ defense, he’s not from Illinois. He’s from Massachusetts.

Not in Lewis’ defense, Borland has a valid point. Lewis is in the I’m Just Like You business, so his spin on the story makes it all about class, basically slamming Borland for indulging in the vast luxury of an airport golf cart and claiming that his current and longtime place of residence is his home because said current and longtime place of residence is a hotbed of “plastic, fucked-up people.”

But here’s the thing: both of these dudes have way more money than most of their fans ever will. Their conflict is ostensibly about which one of them is more “real,” and Borland wins that fight hands down because, as he said, he doesn’t act like he’s from somewhere he’s not. I mean, have you ever been to Jacksonville? Limp Bizkit’s members may live in L.A., but their taste screams their hometown’s name.

Point: Borland.
