Paramore’s Hayley Williams Says She’s Actually Hoping To Lose Fans Who Are Racist, Sexist And Homophobic

Paramore vocalist Hayley Williams took attention to International Anti-Street Harassment Week by sharing a new post on her official Twitter account.

While Hayley was mentioning that 85% of the females are experiencing harassment on the streets starting at the age of 8, she also pointed out that it also affects the LGBTQ+ communities and people with disabilities.

Furthermore, Hayley said that these harassments are forcing the victims to think about what they will wear or which road they should take, and street harassment is a gateway to stalking and assault.

Additionally, Hayley responded to the tweets of the people who criticized herself for these posts and asked them to unfollow her because they are sexist, racist, and homophobic people.

Here is what Hayley Williams said:

“It’s Anti-Street Harassment week. street harassment is experienced by more than 85% of females, starting at young as 8. it disproportionately affects LGBTQIA+ community as well as people with disabilities but is presented in all classes and geographies. it affects women globally.

like most social injustice, it limits access and forces victims to think every day about what they will wear, what route they travel, where they live and work, etc… Street harassment is a gateway to stalking and assault.”

One of the Twitter users replied:

“Sometimes I think that you support this kind of thing because after all it is a market that you can attract to your band and everything you sell.”

Hayley Williams responded:

“What if i’m actually hoping to lose fans? such as the sexist/racist/homophobic/etc fans… Sadly, a large demographic. I probably stand to lose more than I gain by supporting ‘this kind of thing’ but go off.”
