Disturbed's fan humiliated by David Draiman at Dallas show: "I'll never pay to see him again"


A Disturbed fan has slammed the band's frontman David Draiman for calling her out for texting during the band's concert in Dallas, Texas, saying that she will never pay to see him again.

Shannon Pardue said to Dallas Observer that she started texting her 14-year-old daughter, who was at home in Rendon, a suburb southeast of Fort Worth, in the middle of a hailstorm, after the main part of Disturbed's show was over and before the band returned to the stage to the encore. As the crowd began chanting "one more song," Pardue began texting with her daughter to calm her down.

About the experience, she said: "I looked down and everybody was staring at me. Have you ever seen a movie where a dorky kid is standing there and 20 bullies are making fun of him, making him feel alienated? That’s what happened to me."

She added: "At first it ticked me off. But then I just wanted to go away. I told my husband, 'The most embarrassing thing in my life just happened to me. Rock stars wouldn't be where they are without people who come to pay for the show. Whether I had my eyes on him or not, I am still there and I can hear them. He's an amazing singer, and they were good, but it was just his attitude. I'll never pay to see him again nor will my friends."

In a Facebook post she wrote: "Draiman was a jerk. Disturbed just lost two big fans."
