Video: Cannibal Corpse Crowd Starts Chant of “F*** Chris Barnes!”


In the past few weeks, founding Cannibal Corpse frontman Chris Barnes has gone from a death metal legend to the biggest dipshit the scene has known in some time. After claiming a roundtable of death metal vocalists featuring his replacement, George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, left him “physically ill,” Barnes went on to block everyone on Twitter, further insult the death metal scene (not to mention the big, bad metal media), and accuse his former band of price-gouging their fans. Which is why it should be unsurprising that at last night’s Cannibal Corpse show, the crowd went into a rousing chant of “Fuck Chris Barnes!”

As you’ll see in the video below via Loudwire, the crowd at Cannibal Corpse’s Reading, Pennsylvania stop took a moment between songs to chant “Fuck Chris Barnes!” Corpsegrinder, ever the chill but opinionated dude, responded with a laugh, and then announced, “You said it…not me!” No doubt Barnes will be unhappy about it…but who knows? If he tweets about it, none of us can read it, because he’s just such a Grumpy Gus!
