Josh Homme Kicks Photographer

2017-12-11 by Andy H. B. | 291 Comments
Queens of the Stone Age frontman and former Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme is in deservedly hot water after kicking a photographer in the face during a December 9th performance at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Inglewood, California. The photographer spent the night in the ER and plans to file a police report.

her statement doesn't match the footage imo. Claims Homme looks at her and swings his leg back before kicking her and that isn't the case. It looks like an impulsive thing, not intentional, just drunken rock n' roll

That night Josh also intentionally cut his forehead and left it bleeding, called the crowd "retards" and made them chant "fuck Muse." He issued an apology but not much of one.

I don't know what's going on with Josh but dude needs to get his shit together stat.

oop sorry he vicariously kicked a girl in the face intentionally on purpose by visually going out of his way to kick her camera into her face id say thats precisely .3 douchebag units greater of a social offence to someones well-being than directly kicking her in the face.

he only wanted to destroy her face and her camera in his drunken flurry of disarming masculinity

Yes, it's important to remember that in addition to injuring a reporter who was just doing her job, he also probably broke a very expensive camera, thus making it harder for her to do her job in the future.

i cant seem to find the person who called this domestic abuse or is under the impression that he punched a girl in the face. i do see people watching a video of josh homme kicking a camera into a girls face intentionally which is probably assault and destruction of property and she could probably sue him, recieving compensation for her medical bills, damage to her property, and additional for the mental and emotional ramifications.

the point is that I can believe he only saw the flashing object and not the girl behind it, especially in whatever intoxicated state he was in
of course it still sucked, wasn't the greatest move, and she was hurt, but I don't think it was the malicious domestic-abuse level thing some of you are trying to paint it to be
of course no one but homme really knows this shit but, things do look different from the stage than they do to a bystander in situations like this

im not sure who this person you are talking about who thinks this is a case malicious domestic-abuse and it certainly isnt me. i think ive been pretty clear that i just think that josh homme intentionally kicked a persons camera. and it hit her in the face and fucked her up. and i dont blame the camera for fucking her face up because obvious reasons.

Having seen the footage again I’ve changed my opinion.

What on Earth was he thinking?
To lash out like that shows complete recklessness and it’s a miracle the victim hasn’t suffererd fractures.
This machismo and complete neanderthal attitude that emboldens itself at rock concerts needs to be shown for what it is and stamped out.
There’s absolutely no need for such moronic actions, I hope the woman receives a massive payout, Josh faces criminal charges and such events like these are banned for good. I’m truly incensed and outraged at such vile behaviour and it needs to be controlled, monitored and ultimately encroached upon by some form of independent government body to ensure health and safety is a priority.

He played a show at the venue my brother worked at a few years back and he was stoned all day due to back issues and drinks a bit, who knows what else he consumes. His video apology sounded like a person who sobered up and was wondering wtf they did the night before and embarrassed by it. He was most likely stoned and drunk and who knows what else when he was performing and impulses got the best of him.

Also, that kick was pretty intentional. You could tell from his motions very clearly that he meant to kick her. This isn't like the dude from The Story So Far who was justified in kicking that girl off the stage, this was an unprovoked attack on a camerawoman who was hired to film.

Josh shouldn't have kicked the camera out of her hands period, not much distinction to make. She wasn't on stage being a nuisance with a phone or disturbing the show, she was doing what she was being paid to do, filming the band on the show floor. Josh is 100% in the wrong here, and I'm glad that he's replacing the girl's camera, paying for any medical expenses and giving compensation.
