Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea has reacted angrily to an Internet pest who is pretending to be him on a MySpace.com page. The bassist has written an email to the group's fans urging them not to pay attention to a cyber impersonator who has been sending out "racist and insulting and disgusting" messages using his identity. Flea -- real name Michael Balzary -- writes, "I do not want to give the name of this idiot's Web site and grant him an iota of dignity that he/she does not deserve. "Please know that I am doing what it takes to get him to stop carrying on in this way." Flea isn't the only bandmember sending out emails to fans this week -- guitarist John Frusciante has penned angry correspondence, criticizing people who have been booing the group's support act, Mickey Avalon, during shows.
