Fall Out Boy Slammed Over Anti-Bigot Stance

Rockers FALL OUT BOY have enraged an angry mother in North Carolina after asking fans to not tolerate homophobic behaviour from the stage. The furious matriarch, who had taken her daughters to the concert in Charlotte last month (APR06), was irritated when the SUGAR, WE'RE GOING DOWN stars made a stance for unity and harmony. She wrote to the rockers: "The band was anti-morals. Charlotte is not the demoralised city that liberal San Francisco and other cities in the north and west are. "This was a concert, not a liberal homosexual rally. By the way, my children will not be part of your sick idea of a family." Frontman PETE WENTZ hits back, "The only thing I said at the gig was that we consider it unacceptable behaviour for our fans to be sexist, racist, or homophobic. "If that's how people think, we don't want them as fans."
