Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal: “I’ve Been Berated, Made To Look Like A Drug Addict”

Written by John Ritchie on June 1, 2012

In April Music Feeds reported that Fred Durst has threatened to fire DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto due to extensive partying habits. Now it appears DJ Lethal won’t perform with Limp Bizkit ever again following a recent Twitter rant slamming Fred Durst. Limp Bizkit are currently on tour with DJ Franko Carino and it appears he may have just scored himself a full-time job.

Lethal recently toured Australia with the reunited Limp Bizkit for the Soundwave 2012 festival. In an interview leading up to the festival, Lethal told Riverland Weekly: “It (reuniting of Limp Bizkit) just gave me purpose again in life…The DNA of the band with Wes (Borland) back just feels so right”.

Below are a series of tweets posted by Lethal this week, some have since been deleted. The full list of tweets was posted on underthegunreview.net yesterday.

@djlethal: “I’m nobody’s dj. I am me. I’m no kiss ass. I would rather die than be a slave !! Respect that!!”

@djlethal: “I respect that. But it’s not a democracy. Don’t believe the hype. It’s one man. The rest follow like sell out money hungry slaves.”

@djlethal: “I’ve been berated. Made too look like a drug addict. Truth is I stood up for my self.”

@djlethal: “Im saying way too much but respect the truth. After the disrespect there’s no going back.”

@djlethal: “So I’ll never be welcome back. But I will not be someone’s slave and not be me. Too bad. TRUTH WILL PREVAIL!!! I’m grateful but undo not owe.”

@djlethal: “I tried to be cool.after the disrespect the torture. The lies. The cover ups. The ass kissing.theres no going back. True colors show. $$$$$$”

@djlethal: “Fred’s ego is too big to help a friend in need. I tried boy I tried. I gave it all I had.”

@djlethal: “They said ” time heals all wounds” but I’m not going back as a employee following a dictators orders. I rather be a bum”

And what was Fred’s reply to all this: “Sometimes the right decision is painful, but comes from a loving place. My hope is that good people can make the right decisions. Can you?”
