Josh Homme is feeling the brunt of the internet’s hatred this morning. It stems from a Queens of the Stone Age show in LA over the weekend. During the show Homme kicked a photographers camera. It went back and hit her right in the face causing enough damage that she went to the hospital.

The whole incident was caught on camera:

She said she does plan on filing a police report, whether that could lead to charges remains to be seen. Homme has issued an apology but many fans are expressing their disapointment that he would do something so violent and unnecessary.

Thank you everyone that has reached out with supportive messages. A small update, as I’m being flooded with questions: My neck is a sore, my eyebrow bruised and I’m a bit nauseous. The doctor released me early in the morning. Here are three images. Two of them as Josh looked at me, smiled and then kicked me. The other one is later after he cut his own face with a knife. I was in the pit in tears – and he just stared at me smiling. Assault in any form is not okay, no matter what the reasoning. Alcohol and drugs are no excuse. I was where I was allowed to be, I was not breaking any rules. I was simply trying to do my job. I hold nobody accountable for this but Josh himself. KROQ has nothing to do with this and I will always support them. The irony is someone had thrown an ice cube on to the very slick catwalk before the QOTSA set. I was afraid that one of the band members might slip and hurt themselves so, when the lights went dark, I used my arm to wipe down the runway so nobody would hurt themselves. Thank you to @variety for their immediate concern and care with this matter. As of now, nobody from QOTSA has reached out to me. #queensofthestoneage #QOTSA #JoshHomme
