This morning, as per usual, I read through my twitter timeline as I drank a cup of coffee to catch up on what I had missed during the night. What I found was an onslaught of tweets trashing either All Time Low or Blood on the Dance Floor. Being both confused and curious I did a little research to see what was going on.
Back in July, All Time Low did an interview discussing their band, music, and being on Warped Tour.
During the interview, Alex (lead singer) made a joke about BOTDF
Here's an image from Tumblr showing it:
When watching the video, it seems that the statement was meant as a joke. However, one member of BOTDF did not see it that way and took to twitter with his response:
And in the blink of an eye, the internet shit storm began.
Alex soon responded to this statement with:
BOTDF then added:
Did the comment that Alex made a bit rude? Yeah, but if you know the way they goof around in interviews (and in general) it (again) seems as if he is joking. Even if he was serious and said this out of pure meanness and hate, BOTDF's response was over the top, inappropriate, and uncalled for. I understand that he was hurt and wanted to make a stand and show that he was mad and did not appreciate the comment that was made, but there were a lot of different ways he could have handled the situation. Instead of saying something meaningful or intelligent that expressed his feelings, he fought what he saw as hate, with more hate. Seeing as his band is constantly bombarded with insults, you would think he would be more careful with his words.
I personally feel that this response was just...too much. It only made the situation 10x worse and started a battle of the fans.
What do you guys think about this situation? Let me know in the comments below!
Remember, this is my opinion and only an opinion!
Peace, Love, Music<3
