NOFX ‘s Fat Mike punched and kicked a concert goer who jumped on stage and attempted to put his arm around the musician in the middle of a song.
That sounds pretty harsh, but after watching the video below, at Funny Or Die News we ‘re taking Fat Mike ‘s side. The fan (who is wearing a bucket hat, so judge him as you will) blindsides Fat Mike and wraps his arm around his neck pretty aggressively. Mike appears to just be reacting and defending himself from a ‘fight or flight” lizard brain stance. Okay, maybe that would explain the punch, but not the kick to the face once the dude is on the ground. I guess that was just Fat Mike being punk rock. Watch the video below to decide for yourself.
The good news is that the concert attendee/idiot and Fat Mike have apologized and made peace on Twitter, with Fat Mike even offering to buy the punk fan/dumbass a beer at their next show:
Isn ‘t that nice? Punk rockers are all a bunch of sweeties deep down.
And to put into perspective that a punch and a kick to the face is by far from the worst thing that could happen to someone at a concert, here is an exclusive statement from the bat who had his head bitten off by Ozzy Osbourne at a Black Sabbath concert:
Why is everyone making such a big stink out of this? All Fat Mike did was punch and kick the guy. I got my head bitten off without provocation! Just thought of something, if Fat Mike were a bat he would be called Bat Mike. Is that a funny thought? I ‘m not sure, cause it ‘s pretty hard to have a refined sense of humor when you don ‘t have a head. So the concertgoer who was punched isn ‘t planning on suing. I would of sued, but it ‘s fairly difficult to find legal representation when you don ‘t have a head. Also, the guy who got punched was wearing a bucket hat. I would love to wear eclectic hats and visors, but it ‘s not particularly easy when you don ‘t have a head. If there ‘s one positive consequence of my decapitation, it ‘s no longer having ears to listen to NOFX ‘s shitty music.
