Cafe Owner Threatened

for Giving Bands the Sh*ts

5/10/2007 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510_chemical_romance_fm-1A Virginia cafe owner has received death threats after rock bands My Chemical Romance and Muse got salmonella food poisoning at his restaurant. Welcome to the brown parade!

After a gig at the nearby College of William and Mary on April 28, the bands stopped for a bite at Glenn Gormley's Green Leafe Cafe. Shortly afterwards, the musicians (and other patrons) got sick, which forced MCR and Muse to cancel several dates on their tour. Since then, Gormley says angry My Chemical Romance fans have been leaving him death threats. Holy crap! While the Health Department is investigating the situation, Gormley won't go into details of the threats.

According to the CDC, most persons infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The good news is that the illness usually lasts only 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment.

You rude people need to quit picking on Gerard's picture and the music his band plays. Their music is not just liked by kids, its liked by adults to, who know good music when they here it! I would like to see pictures of all of these people who are making fun of Gerards teeth, to see what their teeth look like! That is if they even have teeth!

Standards are badly needed.    

I'm sure this restaurant owner was horrified at what happened. This is an over-the-top irrational response, probably by fans who had tickets for the cancelled dates. These same death-threat people are only concerned about THEIR delayed concert; I'll bet not a one of them were concerned about the actual band members who fell ill and sent THEM any get well cards. This can happen even in the cleanest establishment, stinks when it does, and I think death threats are FAR worse as they are intentional, and thus criminal. IMHO.

Wow, talk about rude fans. How would they know if the guy purposely poisoned them? Which, obviously he didn't purposely.

Oh, and if you don't like either band, don't comment. It's not like you HAVE to, anyway.
