Slipknot’s lead singer Corey Taylor was not pleased when he caught a fan texting at his show.
In a video posted to the heavy metal band’s official Facebook page, Taylor was seen knocking the mobile phone out of a fan’s hands, who appeared distracted looking down at his phone. Taylor then pointed to the fan, who didn’t seem to be upset, pointing back up to the singer.

He later tweeted, “If you’re going to text, stay home.”
Taylor has previously spoken about his dislike of phones being used at his shows, saying “People need to unplug and realize that they’re missing their lives.” The heavy metal frontman has also warned fans against bringing selfie sticks into his venues, adding that he would “beat the s**t out of you with a cricket bat.”
