Several womxn, including Cherry Glazerr’s Clementine Creevy and The Regrettes’ Lydia Night, recently accused Burger Records of sexual misconducts, and last night, Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams penned a letter, highlighting her solidarity with these womxn.
Writing about her feelings about sexism and misogyny in the industry, Williams says she wants to “protect womxn and young folx in the music scene.”
“It makes my stomach hurt and my eyes red,” Williams wrote of the abuse allegations. “It’s so crazy to me how frontwomxn can be such powerful inspiration [sic] to so many young people, who see us as very much ‘in control’ of ourselves and our immediate surroundings when we’re up on a stage.”
