    Mara Siegler, writing for Page Six:

    Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden was arrested Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles following an allegation of domestic violence.

    The LAPD confirmed to Page Six the charge against Madden, 41, is California penal code 273.5(a), which means that someone willfully inflicted a “traumatic” injury on a spouse or cohabitant.

    Maroon 5 has other band members besides Adam Levine? You wouldn't know it from hearing the last several albums

    No, because it's offensive as fuck to domestic abuse survivors.

    The world does cater to what you find offensive. I personally don't find it funny but you don't get to just start censoring things because you don't find it ok. I was beaten by my dad when I was young often and it doesn't bother me.

    Whether or not you're offended is irrelevant, actually

    *sees article about someone being arrested for domestic abuse*

    "Ah yes, perfect time to try out some new jokes!"

    EDIT: And, just to be clear, the first two posts in this thread about an arrest for domestic abuse were jokes.

    You don't censor things because you think it might hurt someones feelings.

    Yeah the person was a jackass but doesn't mean you take away his right to say it

    Good to see that he was arrested. Hopefully, the survivor's injuries are not too severe.

    It was a pretty insensitive joke. I’ll think twice in the future.

    I've always wondered why the free speech whiners only come out of the woodwork to defend assholes.

    I thought Maroon 5's bassist was that Sam Farrar dude from Phantom Planet or am I mixing things up in my head

    He's in the band, just not the bassist.
