All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Blasts Hoopla Surrounding Caitlyn Jenner
All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte is one of the more opinionated and outspoken musicians in rock and he's now offered his two cents on all the attention being thrust upon Bruce Jenner's transition to becoming Caitlyn Jenner.
The Vanity Fair cover featuring Caitlyn has generated quite a stir this past week, as has ESPN's decision to reward Jenner with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs next month. And while Labonte is not stating anything particular about Jenner's decision to transition, he is tired of all the hoopla about the matter. In a Facebook post, Labonte offered the following:
JESUS F--K SHUT THE F--K UP ABOUT JENNER. Every one of you self righteous f---ers who are talking about how brave she is, shut it. And everyone of you f---ers who are bitching cause the PC feminized world gave her an award for courage over someone who REALLY deserved it, all of you. F--- OFF. Bulls--t awards from some random group are worthless. The act was the important part. So let Jenner wait in line for the ladies room in peace, let the PC people talk about how great of human she is, and most importantly shut the f--- up about it. It's literally not this big of a deal.
He later returned to Facebook with "an addendum" to his previous post, turning the spotlight on a Bailey Jay, a transgendered porn star. His post can be viewed below:
Labonte is currently on tour in Europe with All That Remains. Their itinerary can be found at this location. Look for them back in the U.S. by the end of the month. They're one of the acts playing the inaugural Loudwire Music Festival the weekend of June 26-28 in Grand Junction, Colo. For more on the Loudwire Music Festival, check here.
