Paramore are back on the road after Hayley Williams recovered from a lung infection, and she took aim at some folks saying she was soft for postponing shows.
Williams posted a screenshot on her Instagram story on Sunday where one person tweeted that both Metallica and Iron Maiden “manage” their issues and are “much older than you love.” Williams responded with: “Neither James [Hetfield] NOR Bruce [Dickinson] are gonna [perform sex with you] for this, LOVE.”
Another screenshot had someone bring up when Dave Grohl fell off a stage and broke his leg and kept performing. Williams responded, “I have a lung infection you soft [idiot]! Not a broken limb. One you can sing with for 2 hours, another you can’t. But worry not! The shows weren’t cancelled, merely postponed a week. Maybe you should come out to one of them…like Dave did.”
Williams followed that up by writing, “”Internet bros have been pressed by my proximity to rock music and all its subgenres since 2005. The only thing that’s changed is the platform from which they spew their ignorance. Don’t think for a second your fav bands — metal or punk or otherwise — endorse your weird incel ass lifestyle. So many of these bands have stood side stage at our shows and treat us with respect. Why? [Because] they aren’t threatened by a strong woman front a great band in a completely [different] genre of music.”
