Video surfaced today (April 11) of Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme berating a man who claimed he was a fan seeking an autograph. It turns out, however, the man asking for Homme’s signature was an autograph dealer, and he wanted Homme to put pen to paper in order to turn around and sell that ink for profit.
In the video, the man tells Homme he’s a teacher. Homme responds, “You f—ing loser, you’re full of sh–.” He explains once again how he only takes photographs. “What else do you f—ing need?” he asks.
It sounds as though there’s more to the story that the video doesn’t show. Jarrett Koral, a fan who claims to have been mere feet away clarified the incident via Facebook, explaining how the man requesting Homme’s autograph had some expletive-laden things to say, too.
“Thought I’d say- I was at this in Detroit and was right next to Josh when this happened. TMZ cut out the angry comments made by the ‘fan’/autograph hound, and it’s unfair to Josh that they did that. Josh wasn’t signing autographs because there were obvious eBay sellers there (multiple items, lying to get stuff signed for their kids, etc), but he said he would take pictures with everybody.”
