Last year on the ‘Vans Warped Tour‘ The Amity Affliction frontman Joel Birch clashed with Memphis May Fire frontman Matty Mullins over comments allegedly made from the stage by Mullins. Mullins was accused of telling the girls in attendance at the bands set of dressing “slutty” to get the attention of men such as himself.
Birch‘s beef with Mullins continues to this day as he and his bandmate Ahren Stringer opened up again about that on the latest episode of ‘The Jasta Show‘.
Joel Birch said of his issue with Mullins:
“Memphis May Fire, Matty Mullins said—and this is verbatim—”God blessed me with a panic attack so I could relate to my fans.” I’ve been suffering from depression and anxiety for about 13-14 years and if God, Jesus Christ, blessed me with a panic attack, I guess… I’m an atheist and Matty Mullins is a piece of shit.”
Stringer further elaborated:
“The thing that sparked it all was, the thing that he said on ‘Warped Tour‘, like onstage. You’ve got mostly 13-17 year-old girls watching your band—especially that band—I mean no one cares about us—especially in America.
But, he was actively… He said onstage something along the lines of ‘I can’t believe all you girls are dressed like this, it’s disgusting to me.’ ‘You guys don’t have to act like, dress like sluts, to impress me, I’ve got a wife.’
It’s like motherfucker, no one’s trying to suck your dick you fucking dickhead. Don’t act like they’re here to impress you. They’re hot temperature wise. Maybe some of them were hot physically, I don’t know. But I’m saying, there’s dudes out there with no shirts on, what’s the difference? Like they’re wearing a bikini top to a ‘Warped Tour‘—what the fuck?—who cares. Don’t be a misogynist and target women.”
