“Not what I would call” fair criticism; [I always try my best to receive and learn from] but the actual click-bait horse s—. Words full of vile and hatred, intended to feed the humanities have to laugh at each others imperfections and can’t do,” he continued.
The “Radioactive” singer announced that he has stood there and taken the criticism that has “added to the depression that I have dealt with since the childhood.”
The “Thunder” crooner asked how the band’s music could make a child feel ‘not cool.'”
“I’ve gotten over the fact that guys in other bands [1975, Foster the People, Smashing Pumpkins, Slipknot, etc.] feel a need to talk bad about my band for any reason,” he wrote.
The singer said that he doesn’t feel any ill will toward them, but “just more of a sadness that this industry embraces, even celebrates this mentality.”
