Footage has surfaced outside the Irving Plaza in New York City showing Chris Jericho getting into an heated argument with people outside the venue. The story from TMZ is that Jericho performed at a tribute show for musician David Z who recently passed away.
The argument stems after fans were asking for autographs. It seems Chris was overwhelmed and started to act rude towards them. That’s when the recording began.
Chris Jericho has released a statement to TMZ Sports:
“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night.”
“I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
