Fred Durst must have been having a really bad day when the Summer Sanitarium tour stopped Saturday outside Chicago. The Chicago Sun-Times describes Durst as having a tantrum on stage and ending Limp Bizkit's set after just 20 minutes. The report says fans heckled Durst and thew garbage on stage.

At first, Durst encouraged the abuse, then offered to fight anyone within earshot while yelling curses and sexual putdowns.

According to the report, "Had the villain in 'The Wizard of Oz' been a vile little boob like Durst rather than a snarly old lady in greenface, the movie's 'I'm melting!' scene might have looked like this." After leaving the stage, Durst continued to curse the fans from the wings until someone took the microphone. The crowd then had to wait more than an hour before headliner Metallica took the stage.

Limp Bizkit's representatives had no comment on the incident. The Summer Sanitarium tour continues Friday (Aug. 1) at Denver's Invesco Field.
