SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor recently had an unpleasant conversation with fan on Twitter who called the singer “a trash human being who sits on a pedestal that needs the feet kicked out and come back to reality.”
Everything started withTaylor’s tweet:
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men (and women) do NOTHING.” -Edmund Burke (paraphrased)”
A fan named Sirbbofphilly responded:
“Nice tweet. You’re band is great! I still listen to you guys and will continue to.. But you’re a trash human being who sits on a pedestal that needs the feet kicked out and come back to reality. You’ve become another out of #outoftouchcelebrity”
To which Corey replied:
“You have so many spelling errors I’m not gonna bother with you. I’ll let the wolves do it.”
In his lawsuit, Fehn claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funneled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other SLIPKNOT-affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.
The attorney for SLIPKNOT‘s business manager claimed that percussionist Chris Fehn was just a hired musician and not a stakeholder or owner of the band and wants the case tossed.
