Paramore’s Hayley Williams have taken to Twitter recently to confirm the band’s stance with the LGBTQ+ community as well as stating that “there’s a reason” for the band’s past line-up changes.
In the tweets, Williams assures fans that Paramore “do not condone religiously/politically dogmatic beliefs” after saying that “there’s a reason there are only 3 people left in paramore, surprise, haters, it ain’t cause of me.”
Though Williams tweets don’t specifically mention any previous members of Paramore directly, it is assumed that they are in response and reference to ex-guitarist / vocalist Josh Farro who allegedly posted a comment on social media recently where he stated that homosexuality is “a perversion”.
Both Josh and Zac farro left Paramore in December 2010, shortly after the touring cycle for their third record, ‘Brand New Eyes’ finished.
Zac Farro returned to the band in 2017 as their drummer and does feature on the bands latest record, ‘After Laughter’.
