‘I Acted Like a Total A–hole’ – Scott Weiland Apologizes for Boston Meet-and-Greet Behavior
Scott Weiland has apologized for his rude behavior at a recent VIP meet-and-greet, confessing that he "acted like a total a--hole" in a new Facebook post:
I would like to make a sincere apology to the fans that were at the meet and greet in Boston. I’m embarrassed by my behavior and some of the things that I said. Fans don’t deserve that. Without our fans and supporters, we would not be able to do what we’re doing. I put my all into the show that night and honestly was just beyond exhausted…either way, I acted like a total asshole and for that I’m truly sorry. - Scott
According to KSHE 95 in St. Louis, people attending Weiland's concert in Boston posted their experiences on a Weiland message board. After praising the show, someone with the screenname "PigsInZen" wrote, "Scott didn’t even look at me when I was talking to him, he put his arm around me and literally said 'Let's get this s--- done with.' As I fakely smiled for my photo, I couldn’t believe what just came out of my hero’s mouth...Scott should not be saying that when people paid $150 for a brief picture with him after the show."
Another, "Toahiaph," posted, "[Scott] says something like, 'OK, hurry up I don’t want to hear it.' I stand next to him and smile for my picture...meanwhile he was complaining the whole five seconds that it was taking too long. I will NEVER pay to shake his hand again."
Weiland's new album, Blaster, will be released March 31. You can hear his T. Rex-inspired song, "Way She Move," here.
