Gwar Called Out By Born Of Osiris Guitarist Over Apparent Linkin Park Suicide Joke


Gwar have essentially made a career off of extremes but some feel the band may have gone too far during their appearance at the ‘Vans Warped Tour‘ stop at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN yesterday, July 20th. A few fans have commented that the band are said to have addressed yesterday’s apparent suicide of Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington from the stage, allegedly commenting: “Suicide is no joke, but Linkin Park sure is.”

The alleged comment was enough to draw heat from Born Of Osiris guitarist Lee McKinney, who blasted the band on social media:

Presumably the tour McKinney is referring to would have been back in 2015 when he broke his foot. A handful of people seem to have verified that Gwar made the comments thus far with others calling for the band to be ejected from the ‘Vans Warped Tour‘ due to the insensitive nature of the joke.
