Would This Ever Happen to Fall Out Boy?

So, I know thatmost of you folks are not hip-hop fans, but you need to see this video. A member of the Kidz In the Hall, a "backpack" rap group that is more of the Kanye West mold than 50 Cent, just got off stage in Arizona. These guys rap more about girls and parties than guns and drugs. Anyway, the dude gets into an altercation of some sort with club security and here's the footage:

I tried to embed it, but it won't work, so open the player HERE.

The dude goes to the hosptial with multiple injuries and actually has to get surgery from the beating he took from the bouncer. I have their album and these guys are not thugs. As the statement from their manager concludes: "In the last 2 years, Kidz In The Hall have traveled to over 10 countries, have done 200+ shows and never before been involved in any altercation, big or small, with club or concert security, or police officers."

Now, I'm not going to cry racism or anything like that, but I'd like you to think for a moment: what is this happened to a member of Fall Out Boy, or Sum41 or The Killers? This would be all over the media, a la Josh Brolin and the cast of "W".

The dude is now on stage with a leg brace and an eye patch, for crying out loud. That's a beating, folks.

Even a Andy Dick drug/perv arrest got more coverage in the tabloid press than this.

As Q says: WTF?
