When an armed gunman took aim at a crowd of innocent people in Las Vegas, the world was forever changed. Stephen Paddock used multiple weapons to spray gunfire on concertgoers who were attending a country music festival in Las Vegas.

While the nation has tried to heal since the event, one band just started a huge fire on social media due to their controversial comment. While at a recent performance, NOFX made a crude joke about the Vegas shooting.

According to TMZ, the band was playing the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, and when they finished a song frontman Fat Mike said, "We played a song about Muslims and we didn't get shot. Hooray."

While that comment was horrible, it was what they said next that truly started a fire online and had fans condemning their remarks.

"I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you are in a country band. That sucked, but at least they were country fans and no punk rock fans," said another band member.

People were quick to lash out on social media and condemn the comment. Read some of the tweets below:
