According to TMZ.com, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was not escorted out of the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California, the venue for WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event Sunday night, by security personnel after flipping the bird while being shown live on camera prior to the main event match-up between Brock Lesnar and Triple H. Rather, he left the main arena to apologize to WWE producers for his action.

A WWE spokesman tells TMZ, “The reports are 100% FALSE. The “Limp Bizkit” frontman didn’t get the boot, he just felt so bad following the incident, he immediately went backstage to apologize for his actions.”

The spokesman also notes, “We appreciate Fred’s apology. However, we take our family-friendly environment very seriously and this was a violation of that. We sincerely apologize to our fans.”

Durst had claimed on Twitter that he wanted to beat traffic following the show, writing, “I was leaving to beat the traffic! Haha, security escorting me out?? WWE is family. hahaha. Is this really a rumor? Amazing. My boys at WWE are cracking up! Note- never leave early to beat traffic!”
