Odd Future - Voodoo Experience Bosses Apologise For Odd Future Fuss

The organisers of this past weekend's (29-30Oct11) Voodoo Experience festival in New Orleans, Louisiana have distanced themselves from violence during Odd Future's Sunday set, insisting they don't condone "abusive behaviour".
Photographer Amy Harris claims her camera was knocked out of her hands when she was slapped by rapper Left Brain, aka Vyron Turner, during the group's performance.
A spokesman for the group has denied the claims, telling Billboard.com, "There simply is no truth to the accusation floating around the internet. It's no secret that Odd Future has a love/hate relationship with photographers at shows. (It's) simply because they are given access the group wishes their fans would have instead.
"After telling the photographers to clear out multiple times (as they've done before) Vyron (Left Brain) took a swipe at a few cameras, Not people. To manipulate the situation to insinuate an attack on a woman specifically is careless and manipulative."
But festival bosses appear to be siding with the members of the media.
A statement from the organisers reads, "The Voodoo Experience does not in any way condone the behaviour of Odd Future towards the approved media assembled in the photo pit during the band's set. Festival organisers would like to apologise to their media guests who experienced and/or witnessed this abusive behaviour."
