The band released a statement Wednesday calling the incident "unfortunate" adding McCoy and the band are "anything but violent."

I agree there is no need for violence, but the fan had it coming! Calling someone a f**king ignorant n****r is ridiculous! People need to be careful of what they say.

Travis shouldn't have been overcome by his urge to beat down the ignorant. but he's human, and sometimes we give into our rage. The guy would have been beat up by travis' fans regardless after making a comment that igorant and foolish.

and also, for the ignorant person who "judges books by their covers", you have got to be kidding me. just because he has tattoos and piercings doesnt make him a blood-thirsty psycho.

I don't blame him at all for letting the racist a** have it. People need to learn that there are consequences for actions---according to other news the jerk swung on Travis first when he was helping him on stage, so WTF? It amazes me how racist so many people still are. Why is the guy at the concert of someone he so obviously doesn't like? Your fans stand behind you, Trav!

Those of you who judge books by their covers are the type that inspire the rest of us to get violent. Do you think rude, insensitive remarks such as calling people "f**king ignorant n**gers" is supposed to warrant a hug? Not to say it's the right thing to do but if it were me, I probably would have done the same. Really, what do people think when they make those kind of inflammatory statements? No one is going to shake your hand and thank you for calling them a f**king ingnorant n**ger. If you have to judge a book by its cover maybe you should try to read more than just online gossip.
