On Oct. 6, the ICP member ran onstage while the Limp Bizkit played George Michael’s “Faith” and was dragged off by security short after.

On a fan video, you can hear the Limp Bizkit singer say “What a pussy, he couldn’t even pull it off” after the attempted kick.

While it was unclear at first if Shaggy was trying to hurt Durst, another Limp Bizkit’s turntablist DJ Lethal made it seem it wasn’t a joke. He took took to Instagram to call out Shaggy for the act.

In a post and a series of comments, the musician said he was looking for the ICP member to settle things.

“Haters wanna hate. But can’t take the heat!!! Bro step up!! Man to man,” DJ Lethal writes. “Most desperate fail of all time!!!! And to think I was a fan til today.”

Even though the musician deleted the post soon after, questions remained about what really happened. Now, Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J is finally speaking on the subject.

Speaking with the Orange County Register, he explained Shaggy was “just having fun” and didn’t mean to hurt Durst.

“Well, you know, just wild style,” Violent J says. “Fred Durst is a friend of ours, you know what I mean?”

“Things look so crazy when they get into the news wire. He obviously threw it as a fake thing,” he continues. “If he actually wanted to hit him I don’t think he would have thrown a pro wrestling dropkick. It probably would have looked a lot more serious and ruthless.”
