OOPS! DARKNESS FRONTMAN TELLS OFF FAN

The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins has reportedly told a fan to "(BLEEP) off," believing that she was a writer for a music magazine that the band has a shaky relationship with. The Sun reports that 17-year-old Sarah Hartnet won a contest from a magazine to watch the band play a small gig in Los Angeles. However, after a few songs, Hawkins stopped and shouted to the girl, "Seriously, (BLEEP) off, I don't want you in here."


Hartnet said that "I get really scared of people when they start shouting at me and I started to cry."

It wasn't until after someone told him that the girl won her tickets through the music magazine that he realized his mistake -- and settled down.

Hawkins later found the girl in the crowd, said he was sorry, and offered to sign her T-shirt.
