Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe Calls Out Culture Of Hate Online

(TeamRock Radio) Randy Blythe says the internet has warped the way people view the world and he can't believe the things that are deemed acceptable these days. The Lamb Of God frontman insists he "not a luddite," but he can't understand how technology has allowed us to become so accepting of some of the views aired online.

He tells Revolver: "If you think about the type of sh*t you can talk on the internet anonymously, this would never, ever happen 30 years ago. Think about Justin Bieber.

"I can't name a single Justin Bieber song. I don't really know what his music sounds like. But I'm sure it's not good. He's not writing anything life-changing. But if you Google 'I hate Justin Bieber,' or 'Kill Justin Bieber' - and I did this one time - there's thousands of hits that come up.

"And I read all these comments from anonymous people, some of whom are probably 14-year-old kids. And they're writing stuff like, 'I hope he dies. I wish he'd catch on fire. Someone should murder him.'

"They're doing this in a public forum, and this is the norm. There are no repercussions. So, yes, Justin Bieber probably sucks. But does he deserve to die? Dude, he's a f***ing Canadian pop singer. When I was a kid, if I had a problem with someone I'd go to his f***ing face and deal with it. It's insane to me that this type of sh*t is accepted now. It's f***ing nuts." Read more here.
