Security at a local Nevada venue responded to reports of a disheveled homeless man hanging out backstage before a sold out Rob Zombie show. The man reportedly had long hair and smelled of alcohol as he sat backstage in the Las Vegas venue. Hundreds of fans were lined up in anticipation of the sold out Rob Zombie show later that night.
As security arrived, they asked the man who he was and he responded “I’m Zombie”. Clearly, the man was suffering from a mental episode and the security team promptly escorted him out of the building. The man repeatedly said “I’m Zombie!!! What are you doing?!?!” The security guards could be overheard saying “Yeah right! This ain’t the Walking Dead, Pal!”
As the doors opened, fans began to enjoy the opening act. Once the local act completed their set – fans waited approximately two hours for Rob Zombie to appear on stage.
The venue owner was frantically searching back stage for the artists, and could be heard shouting “Where’s Zombie?!” At this point, the two security guards realized they had mistakenly escorted Rob Zombie from the venue.
Here’s what Rob Zombie had to say about the ordeal:
“Even though I smell like booze and cigarettes, I’m definitely not homeless! I tried to tell them I was ‘Zombie’ but I think they actually took me for a literal Zombie… which I also kinda look like…”
Judging by his usual appearance can you really blame the security?
