"My Chemical Romance" is in the market for a new drummer -- the band just fired their percussionist for allegedly JACKING THEIR STUFF.

Moments after the band officially 86'd Michael Pedicone -- they offered an explanation on their website, saying, "He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show [Thursday] night in Auburn, Washington."

MCR added -- "The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives."

As for Michael -- he doesn't deny having some issues with his former band mates -- posting on his Twitter, "What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you."

I don't really understand this?! Kids or just people in general who doesn't read entertainment websites or magazines for example wouldn't even know that he was once a woman but instead he would just be looked at as a person competing on a show like anyone else. The show is not about someone's gender and weather they like it or not it's about DANCING so lighten up for goodness sake! "Live and Let Live"

It's ok to trash a person that is wrong to steal from bandmates, but wrong to trash a band. If you never heard of them then, but make comment. They make way better music than the talented "musician" on your your top 20!!!!!!!!!!
