Travis McCoy, lead singer of Gym Class Heroes was arrested on a date of Warped Tour after he got into it with a crowd member who racially abused him during the band's set. Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz responded to the incident with the following blog:
''You know what? You call my friend a n_gger, I don't even give a fuck what happens to you. I don't want to see you in this scene. I don't want to see you at shows. You are who we write songs about. You are who we think about when we hate. Radiohead, Karma Police over and over again in my head.
What a joke.
You are fucking pathetic and anyone that disagrees should put their white hood on too. I don't want your ticket money. I don't want your cd sales. I'd rather be poor and unknown.
I am angrier than I have been in a long time. Hate upon hate upon hate.
Thank God for my friends.''
Stern stuff. McCoy's response? ''Get bold, I'll fold your ass up like a lawn chair''. Quite.
