Thy Art Is Murder's CJ McMahon

Thy Art Is Murder’s CJ McMahon Deletes His Instagram Account, Reportedly After Backlash To A Controversial Post


Thy Art Is Murder vocalist CJ McMahon has quit Instagram, reportedly after controversial statements regarding trans identity apparently found the deathcore vocalist running afoul of the social media network’s guidelines.

McMahon, who is a father himself, is said to have reposted a video shared by right-wing political commentator Matt Walsh, in which a woman is seen asking her young child if they are a boy or a girl, to which the child replies “both.” The mother then replies “okay, you’re both.”

Per MetalSucks, it is being alleged that McMahon captioned the video with a comment stating that the woman “should be burned to death.” That video was allegedly shared on his Instagram stories and is said to have been reported by another user and thus taken down. Screencaps of several exchanges (see below) regarding the backlash of McMahon‘s post have since been shared online prior to him deleting his Instagram, which had over 122k followers.

As seen in the below screencaps, one reader stated, “Shouldn’t have taken your story down we need to call out that movement”. McMahon allegedly replied with:

“I didn’t it got reported and I got messages off four stupid people and 100 people backing to protect children from his behaviour. I’m just ducking done with it all so I’m gonna go do my own thing”

McMahon later communicated his plans to start an OnlyFans page in light of the backlash prior to deleting his Instagram. He said of that:

“I am going off social media for good. I will only post band related things on here and will not be contactable, I will start an only fans with my own content and no it will not be nudes or sexual soon”

While didn’t see the initial video said to have kicked off the chain of events here, McMahon‘s statement about exiting the social media platform was visible on the network earlier this morning.
