Wow — Rob Thomas got into some prohibited H2O Down Under.
The Matchbox Twenty frontman was behaving on his solo debate this weekend when he had a opening in Melbourne that got beheld for all a wrong reasons.
During a loiter in a performance, Thomas told a throng a story about how he had figured out how to fight jet loiter drifting over from a U.S. and told what incited out to be a really risqu� fun in a process, saying:
“When we get on a craft on your approach here, we start drinking. And afterwards we splash compartment we consider I’m Australian. And afterwards we keep celebration compartment we consider I’m a black Australian.”
After a throng booed, he continued:
“Don’t be racist. And afterwards we splash until we consider I’m a flattering small girl. And afterwards my mother starts to get disturbed about me and we stop celebration for a minute.”
Only it wasn’t a throng who was being racist… it was Rob.
The “black Australian” criticism elicited offense towards Australia’s aboriginal people and that community’s problem in combating alcoholism, so Rob’s fun was some-more than a small insensitive.
On Sunday, though, a frontman posted to Facebook a intense reparation to Australians and fans alike.
