Trapped Under Ice’s Justice Tripp has issued a statement about an incident that went down this weekend during the band’s performance in Essen, Germany; the group is touring with Madball.
Tripp was accused to busting a fan’s jaw after the kid accidentally “jumped” on the singer.
“First off I’d like to say I’m sorry for not getting this done sooner,” says Justice; You are sorry, bitch. “We’ve had very limited Internet access over here in Europe. There are a lot of things being said about the events in Essen a few days ago. Some are true, some are not. I would first like to clarify that I didn’t do what I did out of ANGER but what I thought was self-defense.”
OK. Explain, dick.
“When I was knocked off the stage I hit my head, a lot of stuff after that is a blur. However, it is clear that I took it too far and I’m sorry for that,” he says. “I’d like to keep the other party’s name out of this, as I’m not certain if he is comfortable with being named. At [the] end of the night, I got the chance to apologize to him face to face and he accepted my apology. I think a lot of people may be unaware of that at this point. In any case, I’m very sorry to the other party involved. I’m sorry to anyone who had to witness my stupid behavior. This is not typical behavior for me or my band. Don’t feel discouraged to come out to the Rebellion Tour. Our actions do not represent the package. So again, I apologize.”
To quote my buddy Red Beard, “if you don’t wanna get hit, don’t be the singer and cry. When you do, you’re nothing but a cunt.”
