Lauren Mayberry Strikes Back Against Misogynist Trolls: “Apparently wet hair makes you a slut”

Mayberry speaks out after latest video sparks sexist comments on 4chan

This isn’t the first time Lauren Mayberry has had to defend herself and women in general against the prevalence of misogyny online. A couple years back in an article in the Guardian, stating that “[She] will not accept online misogyny”, after receiving a number of death and rape threats online. On Monday, Mayberry had to relive those threats after Chvrches released a music video for their first single “Leave a Trace” off their forthcoming record Every Open Eye.

The internet’s most hated trolls over at 4chan took the new video as an opportunity to barrage Mayberry with more verbal abuse, calling her a slut because she sports wet hair in it. If you havent seen the video, take a look above.

Lauren Mayberry is not one to sit idly by during threats like these, so she piped back to the haters on Twitter.

The band was less than pleased about the whole situation.

As she’s said in the past, to all the trolls out there: “Bring it on, motherfuckers. Let’s see who blinks first.”
