Lately, there have been claims of sexual assault made in opposition to me and I can let you know that these tales are categorically false. I’ve by no means engaged in a sexual relationship that was not consensual, nor have I ever been approached by a girl after a sexual encounter and been informed I had in any means acted with out her consent or violated her in any means. Now that I’ve had a couple of days to soak up the preliminary shock, I’m making this assertion to set the document straight.
Sexual assault is actual and has a devastating impression on victims. I’ve devoted my complete grownup life to standing up for these victims in addition to these struggling oppression and inequality, who’re victimized, demeaned, and abused. I’ve all the time been, and can all the time be, that particular person. The statements being informed about me are the antithesis of what I imagine and the way I’ve performed myself all through my life.
In regard to Anti-flag disbanding, as a band, the choice was made that underneath these circumstances it might be unattainable to proceed.
I wish to thank my household and mates, and the various, many followers, musicians, and bands who’ve reached out to me to supply their help and assist.
