Ex-Nuclear Hellfrost singer thinks he's a bit like Kramer

Dimebag Darrell's grave was recently, depending on who you choose to believe, either desecrated, vandalised, or briefly partially covered with a note saying mean things. It turns out the culprit was, erm, Reece Elber.

Reece Elber. Out of Nuclear Hellfrost.

Surely you know of Nuclear Hellfrost? Nuclear Hellfrost:

They're a band worth your time if you like your black metal with a crust and some thrash filling.
Anyway, the taint of having perhaps spat on, and perhaps only taken a cheeky Instagram with, Darrell's grave has sprung Elber into making an apology, and claiming full responsibility:
"My friends and I have received death threats and multiple insults over the past day or so, I've made the …news, and all I can say to sum it all up is I'm deeply sorry," Eber wrote. The original post (since deleted, though screengrabbed by MetalSucks) says the visitors spat on Darrell's grave, wrote "FAG" on it, and stole a pair of cowboy boots. In the apology, Eber claims it was all a lie, and that all he actually did was leave a note. The post also called Pantera "buncha racist hillbillies."
I say "full responsibility". There is a slight attempt to deflect some of the criticism:
"The fact of the matter is I feel awful and guilty and this will stick with me forever, just like the Seinfeld guy using the N word," Eber concluded in his apology.
The invocation of Michael Richards is a little odd - Famous People Do The Darndest Things?
