Video footage of BLACK VEIL BRIDES frontman Andy Biersack calling out a disrespectful member of the audience during the band's August 3 performance in San Antonio Texas during the the Vans Warped Tour can be seen below.
After completing the song "Let You Down" while motioning for the "fan" to approach the stage, Biersack can be seen and heard addressing the person in question. He says: "Here's the thing. So when I used to come to Warped Tour when I was a kid, I used to see bands and I respect the shit out of those bands on stage and sometimes little, tiny motherfuckers like you come to a show and you stand there. Then fucking come up here and show me how fucking big you are. Come the fuck up here. Come on. Part the way. Come on. You know what's fucking tiny about you? It might not be your body, but you've got a small fucking mind, so go the fuck somewhere else. I get it, I get it: we're not heavy enough for you, we wear makeup, we're f***y, we're a shitty band. What you can do about that is walk the fuck over there and not fucking listen to us. When I was a kid and I used to come here, it wasn't about your shitty, macho attitude, it was weird kids like me who got to have fun. So what you do is you fucking ruin all this shit 'cause you think you're way too fucking cool. I don't give a fuck about being cool, I care about being on this fucking stage. Here's the difference: a little f*g like me tried real hard and I've got a fucking band. You can fucking stand there with your fucking muscles and jerk off all fucking day while I play on this fucking stage. We here don't give a fuck what you have to say, so I'm done with you. Unless you wanna come here and show me how fucking tough you are, I don't give a fuck about you."
