Published Dec 21, 2015An accomplished musician, film director and fashion icon, there's no denying that Limp Bizkit bad boy Fred Durst has left his mark on pop culture. Unfortunately, Durst's status as a nü metal renaissance man was not enough for him to impress the government of the Ukraine. Instead, he's been banned from the country for the next five years.
As Billboard reports, Durst has long been talking about purchasing a new home in Crimea, the Black Sea region annexed by Russia in 2014. Instead of purchasing a new pad to set up his turntables and energy drink fridge, however, Durst has instead been banned from the Ukraine for half a decade.
The news comes from the Ukrainian publication Apostrof, who explain that the Ukrainian security service placed the five-year band on Durst in November. Their vague reason for banning him was said to be "in the interests of guaranteeing the security of our state."
Perhaps they were worried that Durst would move to Crimea and immediately begin to break stuff or, worse yet, contaminate their water supply with his hot dog flavouring and chocolate starfish.
