>And Smith calls Perez a “musical genius” who embodies the most mysterious and interesting aspects of the band. But Perez threatened to derail DIIV less than a year ago, when he was accused of making several offensive statements on 4chan, the largely unfiltered message board frequented by anonymous trolls. (Unbelievably, he had identified himself in his posts.) Perez wrote unflatteringly of Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves and said he found Grimes’ Claire Boucher “physically repulsive.” He told anti-Semitic jokes, and repeatedly used slurs like “nigger” and “faggot.”
>In the context of 4chan’s bilious atmosphere, it was, sadly, nothing unique. In the context of DIIV’s existence as a Brooklyn band making music in a supposedly progressive scene, it suddenly seemed like they were employing an unrepentant bigot. “I’m so fucking disgusted,” Smith wrote on Twitter after Perez’s posts came to light. “I will never EVER tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia, bullying, or bigotry of any kind. I’m doing everything to get to the bottom of this.” Perez apologized, claiming he “just said some dumb shit on an anime message board.”
How many popular musicians do you think browse 4chan?
I could imagine Trent Reznor lurking the sharethreads, Andrew WK anonymously trying to make 4chan a friendlier place and MC Ride wondering whether the fuck all the child porn and snuff videos are.
>tfw there's probably sjw p4k writers who secretly come shitpost nigger and faggot and rape fantasies on this indonesian cartoon image board but they are smart enough to do it anon
Kanye famously changed a lyric of one of his songs from, "I got called a nigger on /mu/ so many times" to "I got called a nigger on twitter so many times" to keep people from knowing about how often he posts on 4chan, while this fucker made himself a trip.
He's an idiot for letting everyone know who he was with how high profile he is. Though whoever is writing these articles needs to realize that nigger and faggot are generic insults on 4chan and almost never are meant to mean their normal definitions.
How dare he find grimes physically repulsive!
>simplest fucking solution
P4k isn't the FBI, just say you don't know what they are talking about and pretend to be kind of offended then go make a aex tape with sky. Problem solved.
I just want to bathe her, and wash all the dye, stupid memeshit and tumblr stank off of her - so she goes back to how she looked in pic related
if someone is in my band, its because i like the music they make. as long as they show up to rehearsals and shows, and show up sober enough to play good i dont give a shit
anyone who cares about image in music is a poser and a cancerous scene kid.
>(Perez was not made available for an interview.)
>As he explains his decision to keep Perez in the band, he digresses several times. His voice recedes to a low whisper, and he begins to stare into the distance, almost shrinking in his seat. He speaks at length about the culture of 4chan, the long shadow of white supremacy, the hypocrisy of white cisgendered people complaining about white cisgendered people, and so on.
>These sorts fuck ups made DIIV a more controversial band, for better and worse.
the whole interview became about us, /mu/.
>“just said some dumb shit on an anime message board.”
People could have just left it at that instead of fucking with this dude's career.
Board Culture isn't irl, people need to learn that.
Oh yes it is, all the mean things you dickheads say about people are what you really think about the world. You just don't have the balls to say them in real life, but it's still what you really think at the very core of your being. Disgusting people congregate here and must be stopped at all cost.
>Perez is half-black and half-Dominican, and Smith says the accusations of racism were being made by white listeners who had never experienced any firsthand discrimination.
>He speaks at length about the culture of 4chan, the long shadow of white supremacy, the hypocrisy of white cisgendered people complaining about white cisgendered people, and so on.
what the fuck is going on at pitchfork
lately every time i read a pitchfork article for whatever reason i always find myself questioning reality
like is this a real mentality
I like diiv's music but this zachary kid seems like a giant faggot. Cobain was pc but he wasn't a giant pussy. This kid seems like he's ready to light himself on fire to let the world have one less cis white male
Grimes is the type of person that whines about how models are getting photoshopped all the time and then has all her pics photoshopped so she doesn't look like the frumpy goblin you all want her to be
Feminism is a cancer that infects media outlets like p4k. Feminism is why white males are publicly shamed in articles on p4k and black males can rap about raping and killing bitches and hoes. Gotta get back at daddy somehow. Pic related
>“I will never EVER tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia, bullying, or bigotry of any kind"
well isnt that cute a lying little shit trying to save his career by becoming a hero better than everyone. i bet he hates the fags and the niggers as much as the other guy but not on official interviews.
on the other hand, even talking 4chan cant save their boring career. going online to attentionwhore about it is literally the most interesting thing they´ve done so far which means you wont be hearing from these losers the next year.
Except for there's an image right the fuck above yours of her that doesn't have her in heavy makeup doing a fat girl angle shot in lighting that compliments her and also isn't shopped.
here's another one for frame of reference. She's not ugly but she's definitely not pop star hot. Nose looks weird and she looks like she smells. I'd probably still fuck her but I know what i'm getting myself into.
So that automagically means that everyone is themselves on here 100% of the time and not just trying to fuck with people.
Just because it says anonymous means everyone is themselves. Its fun to pretend to be someone else when no one would know either way. Stop being horrible at internet, niggerfag and realize that the jews did WTC and Randy Savage is still alive
Of course she shops her pics. She just wants to be one of the pretty girls... We all wish we were one of the pretty girls. We all want to be the girl with the most cake
Who cares about him?
Let's post Sky instead
brand new- the devil and god etc etc
nothing to do with this thread tho desu
that cat should not be lusting after human women
that's p. weird
>The singer has talked freely about the possibility of becoming a new Kurt Cobain and, over the last three years, he has accumulated a relative measure of celebrity unique to indie rock musicians due to his relationship with Ferreira, his distilled Brooklyn fashion sense, and his penchant for saying objectively wild shit (like the Cobain stuff).
