"My friends and I have received death threats and multiple insults over the past day or so, I've made the …news, and all I can say to sum it all up is I'm deeply sorry," Eber wrote. The original post (since deleted, though screengrabbed by MetalSucks) says the visitors spat on Darrell's grave, wrote "FAG" on it, and stole a pair of cowboy boots. In the apology, Eber claims it was all a lie, and that all he actually did was leave a note. The post also called Pantera "buncha racist hillbillies."
Nuclear Hellfrost distanced itself from the incident in a Feb. 28 post on its official Facebook, saying, "Anything having to do with grave desecration was entirely a hoax put on by our former lead singer completely disconnected from the other members of the band."
"The fact of the matter is I feel awful and guilty and this will stick with me forever, just like the Seinfeld guy using the N word," Eber concluded in his apology.
Will the one-time singer of Nulear Hellfrost go down in history the same way as Michael Richards? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, metal fans can rejoice that Dimebag Darrell's grave is unharmed.
