Rob Thomas Joke Doesn't Go Down Well Down Under

(Radio.com) Rob Thomas got into some hot water over the weekend after making an offensive remark at a show in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday night which was captured in an online video.

The Matchbox 20 lead singer is currently on the Australian leg of his solo The Great Unknown World Tour, where he spoke to the audience in between songs at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, in the Australian state of Victoria.

"When you get on the plane on your way here, you start drinking. And then I drink until I think I'm Australian," Thomas tells the audience in a video obtained by TMZ. "And then I keep drinking until I think I'm a black Australian, and then I drink until I think I'm a pretty little girl." Read more and watch the video here.
