GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna used a derogatory term for a homosexual male to describe CREED singer Scott Stapp when the Massachusettes hard rock band performed at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut this past Saturday night (October 9). The reference was made during Erna's lengthy speech midway through the final song of GODSMACK's set, "Whatever", which saw Erna challenging the audience to form a massive pit on the floor of the venue and "tear shit up." "When we kick back into this song full force, I wanna see this floor right here lose your goddamned minds," Erna can be heard saying from the stage in two separate fan-filmed video clips which have made their way to YouTube (see below). He continued, "We have played every fucking city and stage in this country and I know there's some bad-ass fucking crowds over here; I've seen it before. But I have no doubt in my mind that if you do the right thing, you will whoop everybody's fucking ass on this floor, OK?! . . . OK, let me put it a different way: If you are not up for this, step the fuck to the side, OK?! Just get out of the way. I wanna call out all the true hardcore fucking people that are ready to fucking... I'm talking about tear the shit up — right here. And I don't mean these little pussy kids that dance around and bump into each other... I wanna see from my left all the way to my right, from the front row all the way to the back, I don't wanna see one goddamned person standing still. If you are not up for this, do me a favor . . . get the fuck out of the way, OK?! 'Cause when we come back in, I wanna see this floor and everybody on it lose your fucking minds. Do you hear me? . . . Please don't fucking let me down 'cause, I swear to God, I will go to Bangor, Maine tomorrow [where GODSMACK performed the following night. — Ed.] and I will tell them that Mohegan Sun had a bunch of fucking dead-ass pussies on the fucking floor and maybe you should be going to see a CREED show or some shit like that." After spotting an apparently disapproving fan in the audience, Sully asked, "You're flipping me off? What, you like CREED? You like Scott Stapp? He's a f****t. F****t."Fan-filmed clip #1:
