Crazy Town’s Seth “Shifty Shellshock” Binzer and Bobby Reeves Come to Blows Following a Show
Two singers from the band Crazy Town, Seth “Shifty Shellshock” Binzer and Bobby Reeves, got into a physical altercation following a show in Myrtle Beach, CA. Here’s everything we know so far.
Following the band’s set at The Boathouse on April 21, Bobby Reeves and Binzer got into a brawl that went viral after being caught on video that weekend. While the exact reason for the altercation is unknown, reports say that it was sparked by Binzer not coming out until the final song of the set. In the video, Binzer can be seen shouting, “who has it” while Reeves lays on the ground shielding his face, and then attacking him with a series of punches and kicks. Reeves can also be seen throwing punches back while making threats against Binzer’s family.
Following the incident, Crazy Town was kicked off the Nu-Metal Madness 2 tour, according to a statement by (hed)p.e. singer Jared Gomes. Reeves posted an Instagram story from Houston showing his cuts and bruises, saying that he and Shifty had gotten into a little scuffle, but that it was all good and that they were brothers.
The next stop on the tour was scheduled to happen on April 26 at The Vixen in McHenry, IL.
Costner Leaves Yellowstone
As of now, Kevin Costner is planning to leave the hit TV series “Yellowstone” for work on other projects, including his four-movie Western saga “Horizon.” According to show creator Taylor Sheridan, Costner’s departure will not involve a car crash.
Sheridan expressed disappointment in Costner’s leaving because it truncates the closure of his character. However, he also said that he has no hard feelings and that he and Costner have always been able to work things out over the phone, but that lawyers may have gotten involved.
Dutton’s departure was originally planned to happen in the fall as part of a six-part continuation of Season 5, but Sheridan said that the actual send-off could take much longer, which is good news for fans who want to see more of the beloved character.
Strike in Hollywood
Thousands of writers rallied outside Hollywood studios, including 20th Century Fox, on Friday, continuing their strike against film and TV studios in an effort to see a greater share of revenues from the internet. The writers’ strike has thrown production work into disarray for prime-time television shows.
The walkout is now entering its fifth day, and there have been no new negotiations scheduled. The strike has mostly happened over differences in writers’ demands for revenue from new media.
A group of studio representatives suspended long-term development deals with writer-producers in an attempt to end the strike and get them back to work. However, the writer-producers rejected this move, as they were striking as members of the Writers Guild of America and felt that their requests for better revenue shares were not being taken seriously.
Rally at Fox
The rally at Fox studios saw thousands of writers and supporters, including Oscar-winning writer Paul Haggis, turn out in solidarity with the walkout.
