TMZ is coming for Rob Zombie after a recent altercation at a Canadian stop of his current tour with Marilyn Manson.
Zombie was walking through the crowd, and a woman forcibly grabbed him by the shirt, trying to pull Zombie towards her. Zombie broke free from her grip, and then turned back and grabbed her by the hair and shoved her and shared a message. I assume the message was something like "Hey, that's not cool."
TMZ got footage of the incident, and they framed it with the headline "Rob Zombie Grabs Woman By Hair, Shoves Her During Concert." See the footage for yourself:
Certainly, Rob could've just moved on and not said anything, but turns out this is something that happens far too often.
Other musicians came to Zombie's defense on social media, including the frontmen of Shinedown and All That Remains and the guitarist of Bad Wolves.
If this was a female artist you fucking twat monkeys would have a whole different headline ..:.:. You pricks are exactly what’s wrong with media.
Here’s a headline “Rob Zombie gets assaulted by female fan… reacts” https://t.co/wUTLlNbroa

There was one time in particular, had I not been wearing pants, a certain part of my anatomy would have been in her mouth. I told her if she touched me again I would kick her. 😂

Zombie has not responded to TMZ's request for comment.
Here's a good idea for the future: don't get handsy with artists, and artists, just keep moving.
