Dear Chester, I only realised a few days ago that it’s nearly been a year …
Seemingly constantly in a state of living up to his “meme-lord” title, reality TV star and singer Shannon Noll has unleashed one hell of a non-PC spray at a punter during his set at the Duck Creek Races in WA last weekend.
Responding to having a beer can thrown at him, our Nollsy zeroed in on “the fuckhead in the tie”, labelling him a (tongue twister alert) “fuckin’ private school stupid fucking motherfucker”.
From there things continued to escalate, Noll asked the audience if the perpetrator should come up onstage, then threatening to “punch your fucking teeth down the throat and out the back.”
Closing out the sure-to-be highlight of the weekend, Noll roused the crowd with an emphatic “fuck the haters”, before launching into…..yep….The Horses, as famously covered by Daryl Braithwaite.
A true Aussie moment at a true Aussie festival, all set to the vamping intro of a cultural classic. Watch the incredible footage that will surely have news.com.au talking below.
Noll apologised for his comments on social media today, stating that “during our set there were people in the audience throwing cans and bottles at the stage and after one guy threw a full can, just missing my head it really rattled me.
“We had a similar issue last year with a firecracker thrown onto the stage and one of my band members was seriously hurt…I completely understand that that is still no excuse for the way I spoke and I am deeply sorry for the terrible things I said that were purely out of frustration.”
