"ENRAGED MOTHER CALLS FALL OUT BOY CONCERT 'LIBERAL HOMOSEXUAL RALLY'"

An angry parent has written an email to Fall Out Boy's label, Island Def Jam Records, after taking her daughters to see the band last Tuesday (May 2nd) in Charlotte, North Carolina. The woman wrote that she was enraged by bassist Pete Wentz's "personal political testimony" onstage, complaining that "the ticket said 'all ages,' and your band was very foul-mouthed and anti-morals. Charlotte is not the demoralized city that liberal San Francisco and other cities across the North and West are...this was a concert, not some liberal homosexual rally."
The woman promised to contact national news organizations and other venues where Fall Out Boy would be playing, claiming that the band would lose "a lot of financial support" as a result. She concluded, "Your responsibility was to sing your songs. When you opened your mouth to talk, you blew it...By the way, my children will not be a part of your sick idea of family."

Wentz posted the letter at Fall Out Boy's website, along with his own response. The bassist wrote, "The only thing I said in Charlotte was, 'You can leave this show and say, "I think this guy is an arrogant jerk," or think, "This band is better than this one," because these are your opinions. The only thing we consider unacceptable is for you to engage in sexist, racist or homophobic behavior. If you do, we don't want you as a fan.'"

Wentz did offer an apology for any profanity he might have used, but did not change his stance, adding, "I encourage fans of our band to grow up to become good people and to change the world. Unfortunately, I don't believe that treating other people as inhuman is acceptable...(Our show) is not a liberal homosexual rally, but at the same time, it will never be a Ku Klux Klan rally."

Everyone involved with that story should be punished. The band, the fans, the mother, and even the reporters.

She should've just went home that stupid homophobe. I hate it when people don't like something and have to make a big deal out of it even though it's not exactly affecting them. Suck it up mommy! Conservatives... I'm dying to know what he said. Maybe it's the 'wishing to be the friction in his jeans'. That's supposed to be the actual lyrics but they changed it to 'your jeans'. That'd be funny if it was.

Yeah you were right about me

The band can't play.
That is not the point.

I would really like to know where the girl's mother grew up and in what era.
I'm interested to see if she has been alive these past couple of decades.
Has she seen Queen?
Has she seen Metallica or Nirvana or The Beatles?
What was she expecting, Hanson?
Even Frank Sinatra was a womanizer.

There's one thing about being Conservative.
It's another to be wondering when Jesus is going to run the country.

It was the last one with Thursday and TBS?

I think they went through FOB's gearlist, and Pete was basically like:

"OmfgzzZ, I play dis bass cos it's all shiney and lolzz!!111!"

I wish I was kidding..

As much as I don't like Pete Wentz, the majority of Fall Out Boy songs and probably a great deal of their fans, this woman needs to chill. Seriously, people disagree, people have stances on issues and thats how the world works. If we all thought the same thing what would be the point? Is she complaining that Fall Out Boy are saying that racism, homophobia and sexism are wrong? Because that's silly...

And at the end of the day, she clearly has far too much time on her hands if she's going to get wound up about that.

i went to see them last thursday (haha yes point fingers at me for going to see fob but fuck you guys it was awesome :]]]) and they posted up that letter on the screen and pretty much got the crowd to shout out a big fuck you to all the parents that had something to say and it was amazing. dont fucking come to the shows if your not going to be able to handle it. pete still cussed his ass of at the show anyways and talked about not being a racist homophobic piece of shit which he is totally way respected for in my book, i can't believe a parent would have something like that to say thats just messed up you should raise your kids to be open minded nothing the less

I'm just sick of people calling them greenday. You don't see me calling Fall Out Boy fallloutboy. Or Coheed and Cambria coheedandcambria.

Fall Out Boy is a story of a hardcore band gone bad. Having said that, I liked the bassist's response.
