As you can understand, Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder isn’t happy that there isn’t an NBA team anymore in Seattle and recently, he had at outburst at a North Carolina concert ripping the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Recently, Eddie and Pearl Jam had to play gig on Oklahoma City and as you might figure, he had to make some sort of amends with the Thunder faithful.
Eddie decided to take some shots at the city of Sacramento for keeping the Kings and his comments were transcribed by Ryan Lillis of the Sacramento Bee:
A fan’s video shows Vedder saying that “the people that really (expletive) us over is Sacramento,” before adding “when you think about it, and if you’ve ever been to Sacramento, they’re already kind of (expletive).”
Vedder further explained his outburst at Thunder fans in Oklahoma City.
“See, here’s the deal,” Vedder said. “It’s nothing to do with Oklahoma or Oklahoma City or Tulsa or this state or the people or the locals or people in this building. It’s simply what it’d be like if your girlfriend, who you were with in a long-time relationship … well, you wouldn’t like her new husband. If it was Fresno, I’d be p—-d off at Fresno.”
In case you care, Pearl Jam doesn’t play any Sacramento gigs this year….
