Update: The band member who reportedly did the vandalizing has since apologized on his personal Facebook page.

“My friends and I have received death threats and multiple insults over the past day or so, I’ve made the …news, and all I can say to sum it all up is I’m deeply sorry,” Eber wrote, via Billboard, adding: “The fact of the matter is I feel awful and guilty and this will stick with me forever, just like the Seinfeld guy using the N word.”

“I HATE pantera…with a passion. and so does the rest of my band,” the band wrote, adding that they were a “buncha racist hillbillies.”
