Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry is one of the most outspoken voices in the music industry right now, unafraid to call out the sexism and misogyny that have become so commonplace in the music industry (on both sides, mind you). In a post, Mayberry called out the “motherf**kers” who post some of the hateful things on the internet.
She took to Instagram to respond to a comment, which will not be posted because it does not deserve the attention, and is, by far, too disgusting to even contemplate posting. Mayberry responded to the filth by saying, “My band is lucky enough to have some of the most awesome, supportive and respectful fans in the world and we are so excited to be in the studio making an album to share with them. Yet, on a daily basis, we still receive communications like this. These people never learn that violence against women is unacceptable. But they also never learn that women will not be shamed and silenced and made to disappear. I am not going anywhere. So bring it on, motherfuckers. Let’s see who blinks first.”
This isn’t the first time Mayberry has spoken out, and I daresay it won’t be the last. You might even want to give a gander to her fabulous opinion piece that she wrote for The Guardian back in 2013.
