    Shaant Hacikyan of Cute is What We Aim For, on Twitter:

    Hey, most claims of sexism/racism are total bullshit. This isn’t the 1960’s. Please get a grip.


    Ok, CIS is akin to BAE. Both may be amongst the popular vernacular but they aren’t real. They’re superficial labels.

    Yeah, fuck right off. I once heard he cried when his band locked him out of the studio during a recording session for one of their shitty albums because even they couldn’t stand him..

    I literally created a twitter account right now just so I could call him a moron.

    Yeah, because both sexism and racism disappeared from the face of the Earth in the 1970's.

    It would be nice to see him blacklisted from future tours.

    wrap yourself in petals for armor.

    I'm embarrassed I ever liked his shit band. But I could tell he was a twat even when I was 16. What a desperate grab for relevancy at all.

    If I had to put my finger on it, I would say that it is a news article because the lead singer of a band that was fairly popular in the music scene once exclusively covered by Jason Tate said something stupid about race and gender discrimination. I would further add that this particular fellow has a history of saying similar stupid things, but has claimed to have seen the error of his ways, which, of course he exposes as a lie with these comments.

    Alternatively, I would say that it is a news article because Jason Tate said so.
  21. Same reason anything is: I find it interesting/relevant/worth sharing, and wanna post about it.

    You can tell I get paid by the word. That's why my post was longer.
  23. I've had years of experience honing that response down. ;-)

    I'll see you again in 25 years Prestigious

    He's been a jerk since their inception. Glad more people know this now. Being from upstate ny, I'd run into him at shows, and his band local filled in at Dredg of all shows. He always walked around like an entitled prick.

    He does stuff like this all time. He did it like a year or two ago on the same topic then came back out to publically apologize for his remarks.

    This will probably lead him into hibernation again for awhile and put another hold on their album. He's usually posting on and off and seeking helping. Or so he says.
