Glenn Danzig is the wrong man to prank. The punk and metal legend may be old and crazy, but he is still super-jacked, and he does not like getting his picture taken. Danzig has an extremely strict no-photos policy at his shows, and he had to be physically restrained from fighting a photographer at Bonnaroo a few years ago. As TMZ reports, Navid Farsi is someone who goes around pranking celebrities; he threw sugar at Adam Levine outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio earlier this year. At a recent California show, Farsi made his way to the front row at a Danzig show and started snapping pictures with his phone. Danzig grabbed the phone away and threw it off the stage. Later, Farsi tried to bring a camera onto Danzig’s bus. It’s hard to make out what happens, exactly, but Danzig reportedly grabbed Farsi in a headlock. In the video, you can hear him saying, “He’s being an asshole! Grab his camera!” Watch photographic evidence of Danzig’s intense anti-photograph feelings below.
Am I crazy, or does this whole thing scream “publicity stunt”? Like, why was TMZ at a random Danzig show?
