Phil Anselmo denies being racist after Dimebash video surfaces

Earlier today an attendee of last Friday's Dimebash event in California uploaded a video in which former Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo is seen giving many consider to be a white power salute or "Sieg Heil" and subsequently screaming "white power" before exiting the stage. The video can be viewed below. The video uploader posted the following comment with his video:
"At the end of the performance of 'Walk' at Dimebash 2016 and Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood CA Phil Anselmo decided to end the night with a sieg heil and scream white power to the crowd. I originally cut this from my first post of 'Walk' but I feel people deserve to see this! A very sad moment and to me ruined the night! This is not what Pantera is about!!! Absolutely uncalled for and I can see why Vinny Paul wants nothing to do with this man. Phil Anselmo you are a Racist prick!"
Not long thereafter, Anselmo commented on the video using the "Housecore Records" username, claiming that his actions were part of an inside joke:
"Ok folks, I'll own this one, but dammit, I was joking, and the 'inside joke of the night' was because we were drinking fucking white wine, hahaha... Of all fucking things. Some of y'all need to thicken up your skin. There's plenty of fuckers to pick on with a more realistic agenda. I fucking love everyone, I fucking loathe everyone, and that's that. No apologies from me."

Vinnie Paul once passed a black limo driver a 100 dollar bill and said "shut up and drive sage". True story.

Haha Pantera were always a racist band… is that a joke? Dime has videos on youtube of him using slang terms towards blacks and Vinnie Paul is a notorious racist.

anonymous 1/27/2016 7:11:43 PM

Anselmo looks fatter than shit.

anonymous 1/27/2016 7:14:39 PM

Anselmo is going to die soon

lol awesome

anonymous 1/27/2016 7:34:17 PM

The fact that he copped to drinking white wine on purpose is way more damning than being a Nazi sympathizer. Just sayin'

anonymous 1/27/2016 7:59:49 PM

Lol Nazi saluting hundreds of people who ARENT in on your joke...He should have known bed wetting pussies would get their panties in an uproar over that come on.

anonymous 1/27/2016 8:02:44 PM

He was just showing a vulgar display of power y'all.

anonymous 1/27/2016 8:45:56 PM

He seems like a level headed guy. A really nice guy actually. I bet he loves people from other cultures and skin colors. We should strive to be more like Phil Anselmo because as you can tell by the looks of this video, he is what the world needs. See ya in heaven Phil.

anonymous 1/27/2016 9:09:29 PM

i think with the amount of fury he screams white power it looks like it's a little less of an inside joke and a little more of an old drunken dude screaming how he really feels.

anonymous 1/27/2016 9:19:34 PM

I mean, he was friends with Putnam

anonymous 1/27/2016 9:27:35 PM

Whoa, I thought GG allin was dead.

i might have done that 3 or 4 times myself. where's my Lambgoat story?

anonymous 1/27/2016 11:13:11 PM

fcking beside myself with anger. as a transgender demisexual black woman, this is PARTICULARLY offensive to me... cannot believe I liked a down song years ago. guess the rumors were true all along... pantera and their fans hate blacks. sign :/

anonymous 1/27/2016 11:54:20 PM

I'm so sick of this bullshit where unless you don't share popular opinion, clearly you're some big evil bad guy. Who cares if he is racist? Is he hurting anyone? Committing crimes against them? We live in a society where it's okay for blacks to say "fck white crackers" and all that other shit, yet how dare a white guy have an ignorant opinion? You can't force someone to not be racist. Yet we try to cover it up with shit like "if he says he isn't, then that's okay!". Get real.

anonymous 1/27/2016 11:59:04 PM

Also, he says "white wine", not "white power". It's absurd how easily people will flip on people in a moments notice. Along with implementing what a band or a person is about, to fit their ideals because it previously fit their tastes. Grow up. Notice how not a single fck was given in the crowd? If you're so easily offended, why were you at an event like this in the first place?! It's like going to see rear c*nt and complaining that they swore too much.

anonymous 1/28/2016 4:03:06 AM

Excellence... hahahahahahahahaha, white people are funny. 88

anonymous 1/28/2016 4:05:10 AM

How is this a surprise to anyone. Look at Pantera, they scream whiskey and rebel flags

We need more of this in the metal community. Phil is the only one keeping shit real in a world that is fading into correctness of being no more than a testicle-less, mind controlled, passive pvzzy. Stay strong!!

anonymous 1/28/2016 6:37:33 AM

He was throwing up Seig Heils a decade ago at Ozzfest. It was a huge thing because Howard Jones was going to beat the shit out of him. Def not an "inside joke"

willy_wanker 1/28/2016 6:40:41 AM

listen closer, he says "white powder"

anonymous 1/28/2016 7:02:27 AM

props to him for his response. not even an apology. he was clearly playing around, and if not who cares

anonymous 1/28/2016 7:41:37 AM

He didnt ruin Dimebash, he made it better!

anonymous 1/28/2016 7:48:26 AM

I don't know why I expected anything different in the comments on Lambgoat. Please stay off the rest of the internet. Dumbasses.

anonymous 1/28/2016 8:09:35 AM

Ex-singer or racist band does racist thing; Internet explodes.

anonymous 1/28/2016 8:32:43 AM

I don't see anything wrong with this

anonymous 1/28/2016 10:46:32 AM

White wine, eh? Pretty bad ass. Phil is a fat racist inbred turd who now sounds like shit.

anonymous 1/28/2016 10:51:46 AM

He had a boatload of bands and none of them have collaborated with Ice-T or Public Enemy or Cypress Hill or Downset so you see, the truth has been in the puddings all along... What other metal bands like Anthrax, Biohazard and Slayer were all PR stunts to clear them of any racist accusations. Had nothing to do with musical interests.

anonymous 1/28/2016 10:54:31 AM

You can't be what your idols are...

anonymous 1/28/2016 11:16:01 AM

Can't wait for the Noisey article from Kim Kelly admonishing Phil while letting you know she's a feminist and feels ways about stuff.

anonymous 1/28/2016 11:19:24 AM

Drunk and obviously in love...with withe power.

anonymous 1/28/2016 11:49:28 AM

Lmao I don't give a fck if he is or racist or not, but I don't believe his story for a second. Looks like he just got drunk and forgot that being publicly racist isn't going to go down well when you're famous

anonymous 1/28/2016 12:12:21 PM

Thats hilarious only because hes obviously wasted and being a public nuisance on stage.

anonymous 1/28/2016 1:52:18 PM

Mikey hood is stoked

anonymous 1/28/2016 2:49:55 PM

Who cares. More power to the no apology.

anonymous 1/28/2016 3:22:58 PM

What's the problem?

anonymous 1/28/2016 4:46:35 PM

Rumored for years and years for being a white supremacist. That's not really the issue with him. It's his relentless denial...

anonymous 1/28/2016 6:03:21 PM

^^ Your brain is actually full of shit for knowing that

anonymous 1/28/2016 8:50:16 PM

.....GAY -THE GHOST OF SETH PUTNAM

anonymous 1/28/2016 9:13:29 PM

once phil was selling shit at a flea markket and his money box went missing off his table. Phil then stomps over to the announcement table, snatches the mic and shuts everyone down telling them that this flea market is OVER and nobody is going anywhere til he gets his money box. He also broke his ankle getting off the tour bus on his own property in his gravel driveway, then borrowed a first aid kit from the flea market and fixed himself up

anonymous 1/29/2016 10:00:04 AM

Hunter Young is sad.

anonymous 1/29/2016 11:27:46 AM

J/c- I read the story and comments then watched the video, I was expecting to real nazi shit here...- ffs, lighten up. It's not a big deal and if it is to you I would suggest getting a hobby.

anonymous 1/29/2016 11:56:54 AM

Hasn't pantera been getting a pass for this since 92? I dont see any news here.

anonymous 1/29/2016 5:02:04 PM

Would you expect anything less from a guy who sings "by demons be driven"? The guy is clearly possessed. Should go to a southern church so they can pray for his ass.

anonymous 1/29/2016 10:56:19 PM

trailer parks are stoked

cervical_lancer 1/30/2016 9:20:54 AM

lol @ people giving a shit

anonymous 1/31/2016 2:01:36 PM

It's comical to me that people are just now realizing how ignorant Phil is, vulgar display of power.

anonymous 1/31/2016 4:04:31 PM

Wow. These commenters are making the metal community look like a white-washed, white-privileged bunch of uneducated, inbred morons. I've been a proud member and defendee of this community my whole life, but damn, I may need to follow Robb Flynn (never thought I'd see THAT day) and leave all of you bigoted morons behind. The world is moving forward, and this scene must do the same. Grow up, morons. Wake up!
