Press announces that Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst is a murderer... But it's a mistake

The Associated Press just made a giant freakin whoopsie by announcing that Robert Durst - the son of a wealthy real estate tycoon, who has been accused of murder - is the lead singer of Limp Bizkit.

They have now apologised, but what an absolute mess.

The initial AP report read: "A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst has been booked on weapons charges in that state — on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by Los Angeles authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that an arrest warrant was issued for the former Limp Bizkit frontman and he was rebooked in the Orleans Parish Jail on Monday under two new charges."

The AP subsequently issued a corrected report, writing: "In the second item of the California 10th NewsMinute sent March 16 to users of the state broadcast wire, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Robert Durst is a member of a band. He is a real estate heir; Fred Durst is the former frontman of Limp Bizkit."

ROBERT Durst, not Fred, has been accused of killing three people, including his wife, over three decades.

FRED, not related to Robert, will play at Reading Festival this summer. Ever wonder how to get on at Reading and Leeds Festivals? We interviewed the festival's organiser and asked him just that.
