Rob Zombie has posted the following message at his Facebook page addressing the incident that happened at the Twins Of Evil DTE Show:
"As stupid as this all is, I feel I must clear things up a little better. First off, I want to thank all the fans who came out in the freezing cold in Detroit last night. It was a total blast as always.
Unfortunately, things turned ugly backstage. Why? I don't know, but for some reason our touring partner [Ed's note: Marilyn Manson] decided to end his set by blaming me for something that I had nothing to do with and screaming he was going to "kick Rob Zombie's a&& as soon as he got offstage."
Go figure. I was backstage hanging, watching the show thinking "hey this is gonna be a great night", when suddenly he starts screaming threats. So strange. I don't get it. Christ, I've known some of his crew for 20 fu***** years and some of his crew used to work for me. It's all good. No one would fuck with someone's show. It is ridiculous.
Well, of course, I felt the need to respond to the "kick my a&& remark". Who wouldn't? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4rd (sic) grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one fuck's with anyone's show. It is even fu***** Steven. I've done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles. Not with Pantera, Slayer, Alice Cooper, Korn, Megadeth or anyone ever. So I didn't expect any troubles on this. It seemed like a great idea at the time. But s*** happens. Anyway, sorry to the fans who had to dealt with embarrassing stupidity of it all. We are there for the same reasons to give you the best show ever.......that's it."
As previously reported, the trouble began onstage when Marilyn Manson claimed that Rob Zombie cut his set short and then threatened to "kick his a&&."
