Imagine being a long time fan of a band and finally seeing them in concert when things take an insanely political turn. This is the world we live in now, and for one fan this was his reality.
According to RWN, a Trump supporter is now saying that he was attacked when he attended a July concert in Sacramento, California. By none other than the touring band’s lead singer.
Tim Hildebrand, who is a local farmer, claims that Social Distortion lead singer Mike Ness began bashing President Donald Trump and America during his performance. So he did what any patriotic American would do in counter protest and flipped off the band.
Hildebrand explained he stood silently in protest with his middle finger up for the next two songs, the band played. “I pretty much said I paid for your music, not your politics,” said the patriot.
But Ness, who is the lead singer then confronted him and the conflict escalated.
Hildebrand says that the band got really political right before a set. He claims that Ness bashed Trump and America, which of course, upset the supporter. Hildebrand was torn between his rock heroes and supporting his Country. The fan chose his country and the lead singer lost it.
Hildebrand says that Ness spat on his face and the two had an altercation before the singer jumped down from the stage and allegedly beat on the fan. Hildebrand also says that other fans, who can be heard cheering on the assault, held him back and prevented him from defending himself. SICK!
