Philip Anselmo & The Illegals shows canceled over 2016 incident

Two Philip Anselmo & The Illegals concerts scheduled to take place in New Zealand this month have apparently been canceled. According to stuff, the cancelations stem from Anselmo's 2016 "white power" incident, which is particularly problematic in the wake of Friday's mosque terror attacks in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The shows were to take place on March 26 in Christchurch and March 27 in Auckland. The Auckland venue, Galatos, issued the following statement earlier today:
"Galatos will NOT be hosting this show in our venue on the above date. Just today, information has come to hand which has made us uncomfortable about proceeding with this show."

Everyone involved in this stupidity should just off themselves.

Yet rappers say the N(word), degrate women, and glorify violence and drugs and I'm sure they are all welcometo play in New Zealand. But, in this PC age only white people are called out for so-called racism.

"Yet rappers say the N(word), degrate women, and glorify violence and drugs and I'm sure they are all welcometo play in New Zealand.

Sorry I had a fight at your black panther party

White supremacists are idiots. But dont fall for the SJW crap either. They would be more than happy to replace white supremacy with black supremacy .

I heard he was just drinking white wine backstage and then yelled that so I guess that clears him.


anonymous 3/18/2019 12:23:16 PM

Good, almost every Pantera fan is a beta anyhow. In the 90s you were a poser douchebag wearing pantera and Korn shirts. Now 20 + years later those doucevags somehow found their way into underground culture after mainstreaming for 15 years. Cue defending their childhood/teenage dream band and the fact they wont ever say they are racist. Pantera fans = betas 100%, deep inside you know you aren't tough push pitting for 25 years.

"Yet rappers say the N(word), degrate women, and glorify violence and drugs and I'm sure they are all welcometo play in New Zealand. But, in this PC age only white people are called out for so-called racism." *degrade Also, Phil Anselmo sucks. So did Pantera. I'd rather hear some over-produced schlock guitar tone than whatever Dimebag was running.


anonymous 3/18/2019 12:51:17 PM

How does one "degrate" a woman, exactly?


anonymous 3/18/2019 1:15:51 PM

"God forbid someone be proud and not apologetic for being white. fck all of you racists bastards, especially those racist against their own." Found the guy with the super tiny micro penis!!

Good...this sort of bullshit shouldn't be in music anyway!


anonymous 3/18/2019 6:27:23 PM

Pantera fans = betas 100%, deep inside you know you aren't tough push pitting for 25 years. ^^^^^^ This teenage virgin never saw Pantera live. That band earned its reputation. The cops had to be on-hand at damn near every Pantera show because the pit would get out of control and massive 10-on-10 brawls would break out. Same thing with Slayer. Same thing with Hatebreed.


anonymous 3/18/2019 7:15:38 PM

^^ never went to a show in the 90s. Pantera has never had any "pit" close to the violence hatebreed in the 90s would bring. You could take 10 kids from 1 hatebreed show that would run the floor, put them at a pantera show and they would clear the floor 30 yards all around. Push pitting moshers didn't even think a spin kick head high was a thing at a metal show. Retard.

WHITE WINE!

"blending the 80's and 90's with grapes!"


anonymous 3/19/2019 8:18:05 AM

in order to "degrate" a woman they'd have to have grates on them to begin with.


anonymous 3/19/2019 8:41:06 AM

anonymous9 hours ago white people are shitheads. shocker cool that the admin allows comments like that but anyone who calls out homosexual creeps that frequent this place.. silenced

anonymous 3/19/2019 9:10:08 AM

Can't believe nobody has talked about how his toxic masculinity caused these problems!


anonymous 3/19/2019 9:51:07 AM

Pantera is the kind of band who removes their ribs so they can suck their own dcks 20 years after putting out a decent record. All you old fcks can go die now


anonymous 3/19/2019 9:55:21 AM

The first poster is literally the most gigantic cuck I've ever seen in my life. fckin' nerd.


anonymous 3/19/2019 12:51:38 PM

white people get super butthurt when they get called out for their centuries of bullshit. suck it up, cupcake


anonymous 3/19/2019 12:56:04 PM

^im not white but That's your whole problem. Living in the past and trying to place blame on people for what their ancestors did. It must suck going through life as a professional victim. You should pursue social work , you'd have an entire school full of victims to bond with!


anonymous 3/19/2019 2:11:17 PM

I mean doesn't everybody realize this guy has and always will be racist lol


anonymous 3/19/2019 3:07:17 PM

It must suck going through life as a professional victim. You should pursue social work , you'd have an entire school full of victims to bond with! I'm surprised you even know about the concept of "school."


anonymous 3/19/2019 8:09:36 PM

whatever you say pssy hurt white boy


anonymous 3/20/2019 7:17:52 PM

probably a lot of deadbeat dads sad about this news trying to forget about that bullshit in the 90s and the fact it chased you around all through the 00s and now the kid hates you as he is 18ish and realizes how much of a pile of garbage you are. Apply to mid 00s and you have dudes who sing for ny metalcore bands being stoked to know that is their life. checkmate loser


anonymous 3/21/2019 8:01:58 AM

^ dad,are you going to lay down your sick vocal tracks for the parental "pork sword swallower" demo, or are you just going to sit online all goddamned day?


anonymous 3/21/2019 9:13:15 AM

Hard Truth is 98% of the Phil Anselmo supporters are also white power esque types, they're just not fully ready to admit it.


anonymous 3/22/2019 3:32:33 AM

Unironically white power


anonymous 4/1/2019 3:20:02 AM

Bruh I know Im late, but the 'walk on home boy' comment had me rolling.
