When Jared Of Kings Of Leon Upset Wrestling Fans

Jared Followill and some wrestlers

Remember when the bassist tweeted that maybe adults shouldn’t watch the sport? It wasn't pretty.

Earlier this year, Kings Of Leon’s Jared Followill dropped himself right in it when he claimed that pro wrestling was childish.

The bassist tweeted: “Hey, adults. Let's maybe not watch professional wrestling. Ya know?”

This was a red rag to to all the wrestlin’ fans out there, who immediately sprang to the sport’s defence and trolled Followill mercilessly with a series of choice gifs.

Jared quickly tried to backtrack, but his comment wasn't given much of a chance...

...Until Jared had to backpedal a little bit more... 

And a bit more...

Until he ended up pinning THIS tweet. Oh dear.

Unfortunately, the very next KOL show was in Austin, Texas... home of wrestling superstar, The Undertaker. Oops. Let's hope nothing like this happened..
