@Jinna is right - lest we forget he punched not one but TWO women. With the second one, who was just trying to stop him from punching the first one, he actually paused and drew back, making a conscious decision to punch her after seeing that she was a woman. Then, when she spun around and tried to get away he punched her again FROM BEHIND (in the kidney no less - dude knows right where to hit for maximum impact when fighting someone from behind, guess thats how he rolls).
So wait - he punched 2 chicks, one of them twice and from behind. Nothing quite as awesome as someone who is still punching someone as they're trying to run away from you!
Again, not sure why anyone needed to be punched at all. If you're going to put yourself on a stage in front of 1,500 drunk punk rockers who just payed $20 to see you, and then you're going to spend half of your time on stage standing there in your mom jeans whining like a little bitch then I would hope you're at the very least prepared for someone to throw an ice cube.
Why is everyone arguing about whether it is ok for a man to hit a woman or vice versa? The point is that no one should be hitting anyone. The only thing that should ever *maybe* warrant a face-punch is another fucking face-punch, end of story. No one physically touched Princess Weasel - someone threw a half-melted tiny little ice cube at him from a lukewarm drink. Someone from the audience sprayed all of us with beer - BIG FUCKING DEAL - no one turned around and punched them. One thing is a completely inappropriate reaction to the other. If he can't handle that then he has no fucking business performing on a stage. Worse things have happened, much worse, with much less dramatic and ridiculous "knee-jerk" reactions.
@JE I was also there. He was on stage for an hour and played about 15-20 2-minute songs, do the math. He came out on stage flipping everyone off and talked shit about his manager, his agent, his label, the press, and ultimately his fans. He is a grown man and a seasoned industry professional (and an "industry hack" in his own right at this point) - why did he ever agree to play the show if he didn't want to and was just going to whine the whole time and ruin it for everyone? He's a fucking spoiled little entitled (and apparently rich) baby. It should also be noted that his manager and agent have quit over this. If its not really that big of a deal why do you think everyone is reacting this way? SW has been my favorite band for over 15 years but he ruined it for me on Friday night long before the punching even began. Too bad because I have been known to fly across the country just to see Weasel play in the past.
How does throwing one little tiny ice cube at someone or spitting a beer from 5 feet away (after being provoked to do so) warrant a punch in the face? If thats ok then where do we draw the line on what does and doesn't warrant a punch in the face? Throw an ice cube back at them, spit back, tell them to fuck off, or wait - what about this: Apologize to the audience for the fact that they just paid $20 to watch you spend 30 of your 50 minutes on stage babbling on about money and "industry hacks" instead of playing the music they came to see, then maybe no one will be throwing ice cubes to begin with. Theres a novel fucking idea.
