Ronnie Radke is making headlines again tonight with some even more sickening news.
It appears that during a FestEVIL set tonight at a Six Flags in New Jersey, Radke reportedly threw several mic stands into the crowd, injuring at least one girl, allegedly splitting her head open. [VIDEO]
We’ve sent out for statements by those in attendance and the parties involved.
[UPDATE: We've contacted the Jackson Township Police Dept. and it looks as if Ronnie Radke was indeed arrested, they will be in touch tomorrow for further details.]
Now rockstars being rockstars is one thing. There is something to be said about Billie Joe Armstrong trashing a guitar over a cut set. While it seems trivial, that’s rock and roll. That stunt got his fans riled up and excited. That’s what being a live performer is all about. What Radke did to that crowd, however, goes against everything a performer should stand for. Causing bodily harm to your supporters is the #1 to lose respect in this industry, but what do the fans think?
Some fans are already calling out those who speak out against him saying things like….
Yes I am a fan girl. Yes, I still support Ronnie Radke. Because he made a mistake. Get out of his life. You make mistakes too.
