Reporting news can be both exhilarating and exhausting. Defining news is… subjective. One thing is for sure. Once we start a story, we follow through. Let’s take it from the top.
First, Ronnie Radke of Falling In Reverse kicked I See Stars off of the Thug In Me Is You Tour. Then a fight broke out. Then I See Stars and their label, Sumerian Records released this joint statement. Now Radke is taking to social media to continue stirring the already churning pot.
On an Instagram post, Radke had the following to say:
Ladies and gentlemen, lend me your ears, why do we immediately assume that what we read on the Internet Is the whole truth? does it not make us guilty in ourselves to assume and accuse another for what you read? did it ever occur to anyone that maybe some people make things up to get attention drawn to them for a moment of spotlight or fame? maybe the person you are accusing and bashing hateful things towards and putting so much time and effort into something that you have no idea about much less should even care about is false? would it be wrong of you to tell that person how terrible they are? For what? A moment of recognition by the one you “hate” so much? before I ever assume something about someone I make sure I meet that person before I hate them. we all should be ashamed of ourselves. we are filthy creatures.
I think it might be too obvious to point out that Radke’s original statement was posted on the Internet. Regardless, that’s that. Take it as you will. It’s not the first time Radke has said something cryptic and intentionally inspiring to dissipate a situation and we guess it won’t be the last. We just hope I See Stars stays off of Tumblr tonight and that fans remember that music is the important thing here. Not band beef.
