Story accusing The Killers of rape culture surfaced

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

This story does not involve the lead Brandon Flowers.

'The band members (who had their own bus), would bring drunken groupies to our bus and laugh when the girls were too drunk to realize everyone was making fun of them. It was like a sport to them. They clued the audio crew into a special that they had going on. If we trolled for chicks for them, made sure we checked IDs and the girls would come backstage with the unspoken arrangement that they would blow a band member, we could get a $50 bonus. Even more, if the girl would get naked and shower for one particular member, we would get an extra $50.'

' Everyone was swapping stories about this woman and their experiences with her. They talked about her intoxication level, yet had no qualms that she was obviously blacked out, or close to it. They made fun of one of the hired guns because he had made out with the woman when he was third in line. They called him a **** because he had made out with her post blowing other guys. I just tried to ignore what was going on.'

I’m so glad Brandon wasn’t involved with this. Hope he doesn’t get “caught in the Crossfire” with all of it.

Apparently no member of the band is involved in this (only crew) and they are investigating the issue. I love The Killers so much, I knew they wouldn’t let me down.

Nnnnn it specifically says the band paid the crew to bring girls backstage... I trust her story over their public statement...

Yeah it I was thinking that too...I had a friend that got the killers to stay in her dorm room...I know she sleeps around so I’m sure they had fun with her because she openly used to tell me her sexcapades...and my experience on film sets are they only take care if their own and shun outside people unless you enjoy getting roughed around to earn your way in. Especially the camera and lighting crew.

Her story specifically says the band paid crew members to bring girls for sexual favors vs their public statement.

But reading some of her tweets, she specifically said the band members created that culture. The only one she said wasn't involved in this was Brandon.

Are any bands trustworthy anymore? First Simple Plan, then SWMRS, and now The Killers.

I hate this timeline.

Um...wat? Simple plan too? :umomg:

Yep. They just got rid of their permanent bassist and touring bassist because they both had accusations against them.

Honestly I’m not surprised. I used to be friends with someone who is a groupie and it’s pretty common. Somehow ended up hanging with Jeffree star’s cousin and he basically spilled a lot of **** about rock bands and how this lead singer of this teen rock band had to blow a man and later got invited to this party with this shady guy and all the guys kept referring to this girl as “big *****” she was really sweet but really wasted and I was worried about her though my friend wanted to leave and she was my ride. My friend told me the guy produces ****...odd because he was really friendly with me...

This. I don't like how the band's name is the main headline it should say "The previous tour crew of The Killers accused...".  Because the article states they got a new crew for their latest tour, and doesn't mention the band itself... so it's not fair to accuse the other members and current crew.  Really no one should be mentioned until the girl's case is actually proven to be true.  So many people's reputation has been harmed by false accusations.  I'm glad their investigating this though, even though it's past crew. It shows they're taking it seriously.
