Posted on August 7, 2010 by

Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 was attacked and subsequently hospitalized in Japan after three people went after him in a bar Thursday night, reports E! Online.

“It is unfortunate to say, but Deryck Whibley is still in the hospital,” reads a statement posted on the band’s official Facebook page.  “He was attacked late last night in Japan. We are waiting for results and we are hoping for the best. Thanks for your support.”

It is being reported that Japanese police are investigating the incident but as of yet the injuries sustained are unkown.  With this news, it’s unlikely that Sum 41 will be playing their scheduled shows in Osaka and Tokyo in Japan.
