There has been much discussion around Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this year and not the good kind.

Now co-founder of the festival, John Reese, has penned an "open letter" to the heavy metal community, asking everyone to support the genre and not continue to make divisive comments regarding the event. A bit of damage control it seems but things already got out of hand.
