VIDEO: Axl Rose snaps at Argentina airport

[ UPDATE (OCT 17): The video has been removed from youtube by the user, for some reason, which does not erase the fact that it exists and has been viewed thousands of times by fans. ]

It sounds, and looks, like a TMZ moment, but eyewitness reports indicate Axl Rose snapped at fans at a Rosario, Argentina airport Monday night, following the band’s performance at Salon Metropolitano.

A GNR fan shot the footage, and she states in her comments that it is Axl arriving at the terminal.

The rough translation of the Spanish text by the fan is that Axl arrived at the airport to take his private jet; when the VIP gate wasn’t working, he was forced to use the main entrance, and fans descended upon the car when it pulled up the main entrance.

The video shows a dark SUV arriving at the curb; as fans gather and one approaches the car, Axl gets out of the back seat, slamming the door in anger while yelling, "Get the f**k away from me, you f**king idiot."

There’s heavy security presence around Rose as he enters the building and fans attempt to follow him through the terminal - he’s eventually ushered away by security and disappears off camera.

GNR continue their run of South American dates this week before playing four shows in Mexico next week.
