Hey! Member when, During a Slipknot show over the summer, Corey Taylor caused a bit of stir when he swatted the cellphone out of a texting concertgoer’s hand. Taylor later defended his actions by declaring, “If you’re gonna text, stay home.” So this week, when the band released a live video of their song “Before I Forget” compiled completely from fan-filmed footage, one Slipknot devotee cried hypocrisy.
“@CoreyTaylorRock Ya smack dudes phones outta their hand but then make a video with fan’s phone footage? Can I use my phone or not, man?” the fan asked the musician on Twitter.
To his credit, Taylor recognized the inconsistency.
“Hahahaha F***, you make a damn good point,” Taylor responded. He then concluded, “Yeah, I’m an a******.”
Be Just and Fear Not
