According to Corey Taylor, Chris Fehn wrongfully accused Slipknot of stealing money.
After Chris Fehn was ousted out of the band after over 20 years, the rumors started to swirl of a lawsuit claiming that the band withheld money from the drummer.
This prompted Taylor to clear up the air on Twitter:
You’re gonna read a lot of bullshit today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT.
Long Live The Knot.

When a fan replied to the tweet, calling the movie “dickish,” Taylor fired back:
You think that’s dickish, try being wrongfully accused of stealing money from someone you cared about, and having a lot of your fans believe it.
Good Morning, by the way.
