The WWE rep added, “We appreciate Fred’s apology. However, we take our family-friendly environment very seriously and this was a violation of that. We sincerely apologize to our fans.”
Aside from leaving early to apologize to the WWE producers, Fred Durst also claims he wanted to beat the legendary Los Angeles gridlock following the WWE show. He wrote a post on Twitter, writing, “I was leaving to beat the traffic! Haha, security escorting me out?? WWE is family. hahaha. Is this really a rumor? Amazing. My boys at WWE are cracking up! Note — never leave early to beat traffic!”

Fred Durst, vocalist of multi-awarded band Limp Bizkit, is reportedly planning on axing two original members of their band.
According to reports, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is said to be looking for a “new vision” for the band since they were signed to Cash Money Records – and that “vision” does not seem to include members DJ Lethal and drummer, John Otto. Sources say that Fred Durst has been upset with the two Limp Bizkit members for a while, claiming their partying habits didn’t fit with his lifestyle.
However, the two guys haven’t been officially removed from Limp Bizkit, but they feel it might be headed in that direction unless they work out the issues with Fred Durst.
DJ Lethal said, “We’ve worked together the last four years to bring Limp Bizkit back to where it is today, and to just be thrown out on the street after the band gets a new deal and a new chance at life isn’t cool.” Lethal also added, “You can’t push away the people who helped you get there. The fans should know that if two-fifths of the original band are not playing at the concerts, it wont be truthful to them.”
DJ Lethal has also previously tweeted on Friday: “So far the only news I’ve heard is that Fred has plans for a ‘new’ LIMP BIZKIT which doesn’t include John Otto or I. I’m hoping for the best. From what I understand, Fred Durst doesn’t approve of our lifestyle which includes partying and fun. I don’t want to cause drama. It’s unfair.”
“I’ve tried to reach out and make things better. But Fred Durst seems to have made up his mind. Bands fight and argue all the time. I just don’t get it,” DJ Lethal continued. “This is not an April Fool’s joke, unfortunately. I love being in Limp Bizkit; it’s been my life for 15 years. A lot of good people and good times.”
“I’m not going to whine about it. I just had to vent because it’s pretty sad. And had to address all the fans going to a 1/2 BIZKIT show,” the DJ concluded.
Limp Bizkit recently announced plans to record a duet with Cash Money’s Lil Wayne as part of their new contract.
