Scandals and Controversy

The statement read: “Several stories have been brought to our attention about some Burger artists engaging in the grooming of underage girls for sex, relationships built on power imbalance”, with a photo that read “ZERO TOLERANCE.”
Following this statement, the official band site for SWMRS also posted a statement on Instagram, in which they acknowledged the issues, and condemned those who engage in sexual misconduct and abuse of minors.
Revolted by their statement, which in her opinion was hypocritical, Lydia wrote: ”I was in a relationship with Joey that started when I was 16 and ended right before my 18th birthday. For so long I viewed it just as being toxic; now I know that what I actually experienced was emotional abuse and sexual coercion by someone in a position of power over me.”
