Limp Bizkit frontman and purveyor of fine red hats Fred Durst would like you to know that he is not alleged killer Robert Durst.
One set out on a killing rampage, murdering things that many people held near and dear – ruining their lives. And the other one is alleged killer Robert Durst.
You might recall that earlier this month, shortly after HBO aired the finale of its Robert Durst docuseries The Jinx and Durst was arrested in New Orleans, the Associated Press made a hilarious error and issued one of the best corrections of our time.
This came over the AP CA 10th Newsminute at about 6:27 p.m. PDT the day after Robert Durst’s arrest:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) – 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.
Which prompted this incredible thing:
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.
That, in turn, prompted a lot of jokes. Everyone had jokes.
These Robert Durst/Fred Durst twitter jokes are timeless. I can't wait to tell my grand kids about them.

Anyway, Fred has finally responded … with a nice opportunity to sell a sweatshirt.

UPROXX says that the merch isn’t yet up on Limp Bizkit’s official site – but you know that’s coming, right?
