Lewis berates audience
“Your f**king mothers should be ashamed of themselves, you f**king pieces of s**t,” that’s what Staind’s Aaron Lewis said after berating audience members in the middle of a song. If you haven’t seen the video by now, you’re missing out. During a Staind show over the weekend in Kansas City, in the middle of a song Lewis saw a young crowd surfing girl getting what he described as molested. After an initial profanity laced tirade the Staind singer then said that the culprits should be beaten down by everyone around them. He even threatens to single people out of the crowd for an ass whooping if he sees it again. After venting … he then tells the guitar player to continue. This isn’t the first time that Lewis has blown up at audience members for unruly behavior. It also highlights the issue of women getting sexually assaulted at rock shows, something that is often overlooked or underreported.
