Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer gets death threats for shoving Brazilian soccer jersey down pants (VIDEO)

The drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has been sent death threats after he provoked Brazilian football fans by dissing their soccer team.

Chad Smith has made a grovelling apology after he was filmed putting the red and black strip of Rio de Janeiro club, Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, down the back of his trousers  — pretending to wipe his butt.

The video shows him throwing it to the back of the stage as the crowd turns ugly. 

Smith, who is currently on tour with RHCP, was at an event for fans in the Hard Rock Café in Belo Horizonte the capital of the south eastern state of Minas Gerais.

YouTube, Facebook and Twitter erupted with virulent death threats and abusive messages.
One YouTube post from an Arthur Candeia warned: "You’ve made enemies of 40 million fans in one’ve put your life at risk."

Smith might want to look for higher ground. They take their soccer seriously in Brazil — a country where a referee was beheaded by enraged fans after he stabbed a player to death.

Coming soon, Rio 2014.
