Sill Confused About the Different Between Robert Durst and Fred Durst? We Can Help!

HBO documentary series The Jinx told the story about a mega-rich person of interest, Robert Durst, who many believe responsible for several murders. It ended its short run last month and received a load of attention and acclaim.

Since then, Fred Durst, lead singer of the somehow-still-around Limp Bizkit, has increasingly been confused with the eccentric millionaire. And Fred Durst has grown afraid an association with the alleged killer will sully his reputation.

    Media blog Romenesko reported this glaring error and correction made by the Associated Press:

    "In the second item of the California 10th NewsMinute sent March 16 to users of the state broadcast wire, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Robert Durst is a member of a band. He is a real estate heir; Fred Durst is a member of the band Limp Bizkit."

    Oh brother, who knows what to believe now.
