Masked rockers Slipknot were mistaken for "pimps" when they were caught watching obscene adult movies after their New York gig.

The HERETIC ANTHEM singers finished their New York performance and shocked onlookers by openly watching hardcore pornographic films.

Guitarist MICK THOMPSON says, "They think I'm some dodgy character like a dealer or a pimp. It's a small town - someone I know said it was like Millport in Scotland. Everyone tried to know everyone else's business."
