Josh Homme: I'm
No Homophobe

The front man for rock band Queens of the Stone Age blamed the flu for lashing out at a fan who threw a shoe at him during a performance.

The front man for rock band Queens of the Stone Age blamed the flu for lashing out at a fan who threw a shoe at him during a performance in Norway. Josh Homme was performing the song "3's and 7's" when the shoe hit him, causing him to call the audience member several expletives, including a gay slur, according to MTV News in the U.K.

In an open letter published on PerezHilton.com, Homme writes that he is not homophobic and his actions were not intended to belittle the fan's sexual orientation.

"You see, it's not the words, it's their intent. I never said, nor suggested, that being gay is wrong, but apparently, based on your outrage to my flu-infused rant, you do!"

Queens of the Stone Age was performing at the Norwegian Wood Festival last weekend when the incident happened. The person was escorted from the show by security. (The Advocate)
