The Scoop: At a recent date on the Vans Warped Tour, The Amity Affliction called out Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire) for being racist towards the band’s fill in drummer Chad Hasty (Glasscloud). You can check out a fan captured video of the call out below.
The Spin: A very rash statement coming from Joel Birch, who most that know him would say he’s an extremely laid back, down to Earth person. It’s quite obvious that there’s a whole lot more to this debacle than just what’s being said in this video, but this is all we have at the moment. Be sure to stay tuned to MEB as we will be following up this story with further details as soon as they’re revealed to us.
The Question: What do you think of the situation? Do you think Matty would really say something that out of line to spark such controversy? Or do you think that possibly what he said was taken out of context? Let us know in the comments below!
