It looks like there is some Twitter drama between ex-Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler and that of band guitarist Mark Morton. A tweet Morton has shared on the social media platform has provoked Adler to call Morton a “fucking douche,” with Morton firing back at the former Lamb Of God drummer.

The spat between the two artists began when Morton tweet’d an image of Lee J. Carter’s Twitter profile, which showed that Morton was blocked by Carter. Carter is an American politician who represented the 50th district in the Virginia House of Delegates from 2018 to 2022.  In Morton’s tweet, he wrote “But whyyyyyyyy?!?!?,” curious as to why the politician has him blocked.

Come to find out that the ex-Lamb Of God drummer has a personal opinion as to why Morton may be blocked. Commenting on Morton’s tweet, Adler wrote, “Maybe because you are a fucking douche.”

Rather than stay silent, Morton decided to clap back at Adler with the following reply, “I usually wait until after dark to drunk message my exes.”

There is the possibility that this exchange could just be two dudes throwing some playful jabs at one another, but it is tough to tell. Adler had been the Lamb Of God drummer since the band’s formation in 1994; after working on a plethora of Lamb Of God albums, he would exit Lamb Of God in 2019. Adler was replaced with the current band drummer, Art Cruz.

As to why did Chris Adler leave Lamb Of God ? There has been no explicit reason shared at this time. But, commenting on his departure back  in 2019, Adler shared in a Facebook status, “I did not leave the dream. I did not make the decision to leave my life’s work. The truth is that I am unwilling to paint by numbers.” You can read the full statement below:

From his statement, it also appears that he left the band on some somewhat good terms. We guess we’ll see in time if anything more comes from this spat between the two artists. You can also find the Twitter exchange between Adler and Morton below:
