Limp Bizkit Fire DJ Lethal (Again?)


After previous rumors of former House Of Pain disc jockey DJ Lethal being let go from rap-metal outfit Limp Bizkit, it seems that some truth has risen, but only as of recently. Allegedly due to Lethal’s substance abuse problems, notorious frontman Fred Durst has had some issues with Lethal and seems to be the driving force behind Lethal’s departure.

Limp Bizkit are currently touring with Franko Carino in lieu of Lethal’s absence. DJ Lethal took to Twitter recently to express his feelings about the situation in a lengthy series of 140 character rants. In response to the aforementioned rant session, vocalist Fred Durst apparently only had the following to say:

“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?”

Check out Lethal’s tweets after the jump and share with us your thoughts on this “dramatic” situation.

-I’m nobody’s dj. I am me. I’m no kiss ass. I would rather die than be a slave !! Respect that!!”
– 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.
– respect it all. Personally I’ve been degraded and disrespected big time. It’s personal now.
– …I tried to lay low. But the MAN with self respect and dignity could hold back!! Call it childish or immature. Through thknthn
– I’m really sorry mostly to the fans because one man is a tyrant control freak. #Napoleon !!
– as long as you know that’s not what the “man” cares about. I live for fans he lives for himself TRUTH. That’s where the problem is
– …I’ve been berated. Made too look like a drug addict. Truth is I stood up for my self
– …Truth is I stood up to fred. Simple. He’s a tyrant slave driver
– Im saying way too much but respect the truth. After the disrespect there’s no going back. I would rather beg for bread than kiss ass. !!!!!!
– Drugs?!???we all know who had a “drug” problem. The problem was I had a fight with fred and let him know my feelings. #Truth
– 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
– I hope you know that this is it!! I will never go back to fake ass money hungry settle for anything desperate no comradery. Snakes and rats!
– Im sorry to the fans most if all. Never meant to hurt you. But it’s not a band when one man controls all. #democracy
– I actually wish them well. But I don’t follow any man. I Am a mAn. And a solid person. Never quit.missed a show!!
– 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. $$$$$$
– …Fred’s ego is too big to help a friend in need. I tried boy I tried. I gave it all I had.
– Yeah I’m pissed right now. It’s like a long relationship gone bad. Too bad. Life goes on. One man cares about on man. No team. All kiss ass
– I never quit. Been there since day 1. There’s a lot behind the scenes no body knows. I’m not gonna rat on anybody. I NEVER LEFT!!
– the only one breaking the “family” and “fans” up is fred durst. Everyone else has no voice and follows his lead!!
– I txt fred maybe times. No answer. His ego is too big. He said maybe after summer. Sorry does not work for me. I TRIED
– they said ” time heals all wounds” but I’m not going back as a employee following a dictators orders. I rather be a bum
– love you guys. Enjoy the fred durst and friends concerts. He’s still a good front man.
– I mean. 13 shows a year?!?!? Wtf. Makes you think one man is more comfortable taking more $ while the rest of the band struggles
– there’s no coming back. This will be the real final straw. But to me the final straw was the last few concerts.”

    Could not agree anymore. Durst is a money hungry sellout who will not hesitate to stab his friends in the back. Durst also fired Jordan Schur, LB’s manager of 16 years. Fred Durst is now the manager. Fred Durst turned on everyone who helped make him successful. Shows what kind of scum Fred is. In one of the concerts, Durst got the audience to do a “Fuck Lethal” chant. Disgusting. I don’t know how he can live with himself.
