Phil Anselmo Apologizes For His Racist Actions In New Video, Asks For Another Chance


Phil Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera) has issued an apology for the events that took place at last weekend’s ‘Dimebash‘ event, which saw him indulge in a nazi salute and yell “white power” from the stage. You can view his apology below:

Philip H. Anselmo here, and I’m here to basically respond to all the heat I’ve been getting that I deserve completely. I was at the Dimebash and it was extremely late at night. There was heavy duty talk between myself and those who love Dime. Heavy emotions were flowing, jokes were made backstage, that transpired upon the stage, and it was ugly, it was uncalled for, and anyone who knows me and my true nature knows that I don’t believe in any of that, I don’t wanna be part of any group.

I’m an individual and I am 1000% apologetic to anyone who took offense to what I said. You really should have taken offense to what I said. And I am so sorry. And I hope, man, just give me another chance. Just give me another chance. I love all of you, and anyone who’s met me, or who knows me, knows that I love all of you. Bless you.”
