Earlier this morning Defeater posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
“Chain was amazing last night, thank you to everyone who came out and had a good time.
Unfortunately we have a kid out there who is bragging on twitter that he stole 7 defeater shirts last night.
If anyone knows this piece of shit PLEASE let us know so we can stop by and get our stuff back.”
The kid in question took to his Twitter earlier today to brag about his role in the theft of 7 Defeater shirts.
The message has brought upon the clamoring and rage of fans who denounced the thief for not only stealing from a hardworking band, but also for ruining the “scene” and defaming the straight-edge lifestyle (which he claims to lead).
Defeater fans have taken to bombarding the thief with messages and threats, resulting in the deletion of his Twitter and Facebook accounts.
To conclude the scandal, Defeater posted the following:
“[He] just called and apologized.
“I only stole two, I said seven to try to sound cool.”
We are arranging to get our stuff back now. To everyone who helped go to bat for us on this, thank you. You are the best, warm fuzzies.”
