Bad Wolves’ Tommy Vext Slams ‘Snowflake Key Board Warriors’ Over “Officer Down” Misinterpretations

Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext has set the record straight regarding the meaning behind their track “Officer Down“, which can be found on their recently released debut album, “Disobey“. Speaking via Instagram, Vext offered the following:

“Tonight we were privileged enough to be escorted by Johnson Cities Finest at our sold out show at Capone’s here in TN. Considering the times we are living in I must say how reassuring and grateful we are as artists to feel protected by these men in uniform.

Now unfortunately this brings up another issue.

I have been reading many confused comments regarding our song “Officer Down” this past week and this is where I stand – These lyrics are written to serve as a productive conversation starter addressing the issues of documented police brutality and more specifically the media’s slanderous and false projection of all law enforcement.

False narratives that we have witness lead to the assassinations of officers in dallas TX & Brooklyn NYC by cowardly, unstable scum .

We in BAD WOLVES are NOT an anti cop band. As a boy who grew up in NYC during 911 and first hand witnessed the courageous efforts of state and federal law enforcements as-well as EMS and Firefighters put their lives on the line to save victims of terror attacks my reverence for the men and women who serve these offices can be no higher. They are as important to this country as the military branches that defend our nation and its freedom.

As a personal friend of the Brooklyn Assistant District Attourney, members of NYPD, LAPD and a volunteer who has brought anti drug and alcohol policy events to schools along side the LAPD Narcotics Division I find it laughable the ignorant hateful dribble being spewed in some of these comments.

So to all the snowflake key board warriors out there, YOUR MISS-INTERPRETATIONS ARE NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY.
Buy some tissues and wipe your pussies.

I don’t come to your job and kick the dicks out of your mouths so stop trying to tell me how to do my job.

All the best ~Tommy”
