Ex-Lamb of God Drummer Chris Adler to Guitarist Mark Morton: “You Are a F***ing Douche”


So far, it has seemed like Lamb of God‘s parting ways with longtime drummer Chris Adler has been…maybe not perfect, but terse at its very nastiest. Now, it seems as though things are either worse than we thought or the dudes are on good-natured ribbing terms, as Adler and guitarist Mark Morton traded tweets last night which were a little intense.

The whole thing started when Morton publicly lamented being blocked by Lee J. Carter, a politician who represented the 50th district in the Virginia House of Delegates. Morton, in a tweet, asked, “But whyyyyyyy?”

To which Adler responded, “Maybe because you are a fucking douche.”

Morton then quoted the tweet, replying, “I usually wait until after dark to drunk text my exes.”

You can check out screenshots of the tweets; Morton blocked us, and the first interaction now appears to be deleted. Good thing we can smell a regrettable situation when we see it online!

So, what’s going on here? Are Adler and Morton the kinds of dudes who can roll eyes and trade quips, the way we are with our sweethearts at Metal Injection? Or was this an earnest argument on a public platform?

Read the tweets below and make up your own mind. In the meantime, catch Lamb of God at one of their upcoming dates with Megadeth, Trivium, and In Flames:
