The gloves are off, with only a few weeks into their co-headline tour, Zach Lind, the drummer for Jimmy Eat World, has slammed Third Eye Blind singer Stephan Jenkins as a “fucking creepy douchebag.
Lind went to Twitter and wrote the following: “Stephan Jenkins is such a fucking creepy douchebag (I feel so much better now).”
He then went on to share a pic of a notice which included the demand that venue staff learns the faces of Third Eye Blind.
It read: “The members of Third Eye Blind will not be wearing laminates,” it then goes on to say. “Please learn their faces so they are granted entrance to all areas of the venue, but please also be diligent in making sure they are the only people allowed entrance backstage without laminates.” REALLY…
Fans seemed to have unloaded a ton of criticsium on Lind and have said he should have gone to Jenkins directly, he responded: “I genuinely feel bad for anyone stepping in to defend this dude when they have no idea what they’re defending. My assessment of the man here is extravagantly generous.”
And for those saying I should have said my peace in person, a.) you don’t know I didn’t and b.) you’re coming to the defense of someone who literally redrafted his bands recording contract for his own benefit on the eve of the signing & didn’t tell his bandmates until years later!”
Is there a celebrity boxing match on the cards boys?
