This Band Member Is Catching Flak For Literally Kicking A Selfie Taking Fangirl Off Stage
Would anyone even be mentioning this video if the person that caught a boot to the swell of the back was a man? That's a rhetorical question, because I think we all know the answer to that. You want equality? This is equality. If you get up on stage - where you aren't supposed to be anyway - at a punk rock show and don't immediately dive off onto a crowd of people without looking then you get punted directly in the back.
I know in most cases it is frowned upon to kick females, but a rock concert isn't most places. People go to rock concerts with the intent of hurling themselves at one another as a form of dance. Color me shocked that the person that draws those type of crowds isn't a huge fan of people blocking the show he is putting on to take a fucking selfie. Would you believe that he didn't interrupt his last song - that everyone was apparently dying to hear - to tap this outgoing young lady on the shoulder and nicely ask her to step down before he continued? You want to get treated with respect when you break the rules then go try to climb on Taylor Swift's stage and 35 security guards will calmly escort you off the premises. If you want to pay $35 a head to catch some live music in a ratty basement somewhere then you better realize that - man or woman - you might be picking your teeth up off the ground if you overstep your boundaries. I know that's the deal because not one single person in that crowd seemed overwhelmingly concerned with her safety as she endured a cartoonish amount of whiplash. Some - dare I say it - actually appeared to enjoy it.
