Singer Explains Fan Beating
He admits he took things too far after he fell off the stage and became embroiled with an audience member – but that he met the person in question after show and offered an apology, which was accepted. Tripp says he fell off the stage and landed badly, finding himself surrounded by the traditional strenuous physical activity near the front of a hardcore band's audience.
A struggle broke out between the singer and the audience member, which stopped the show as crew dived in to split the pair apart. Tripp returned to the stage and called the fan out, saying: "I'm not a f**king super hero. Don't jump on me, don't f**king hit me. If you want to hit me get the f**k up here." After a few moments he'd calmed down and called on house security to leave the fan alone, saying: "Let the kid stay – let him stay and enjoy himself. He ain't got to go nowhere." Now Tripp has explained himself in public
