Celebrities’ fame and influence often run amuck when fans believe they know them and what they represent when they are merely building an image or persona they use to entertain.

Toby Keith is a country singer who is vocal about his patriotism and his support of the U.S. military.  But, it is obvious that his fans are of the redneck persuasion and one Darren Walp, 33, thought he’d leave the concert and have some redneck type of fun.  He left the Toby Keith concert at Susquehanna Bank Center in New Jersey, climbed the fence of the, predominantly African American, Royal Court residential complex and began yelling racial slurs and waving the confederate flag, according to the Daily Mail.

Walp was arrested and charged with “harassment, disorderly persons and bias intimidation in the fourth degree and criminal trespassing in the fourth degree.”  His Facebook page shows pictures of him and his wife in patriotic dress with her in U.S. flag infused denim shorts and him in camouflage bermuda shorts.

The report shows that there was a man by the same name that jumped from a correctional facility van in an attempt to escape police in 2007, but he wasn’t so lucky this time.  After her finished his asinine display at the complex, he tried to return to the concert and “blend in,” but FINALLY, the police in New Jersey easily recognized an idiot when they saw him, and apprehended him immediately.

  1. Your mention of ‘rednecks’ as the fans, and sterotyping all people at the concert as such, is as bad as if someone said all concert goers at a Jay Z concert were thugs. You are doing exactly what you think is wrong, when done from the other side, right? Two wrongs don’t make a right. That’s all I’m saying. This guy was an idiot. Do not group him in with all country singers.
    That’s wrong.
