Sad news to report from yesterday’s Black Honey show at Common People Festival in Amsterdam: apparently some of the young female attendees were sexually assaulted in the crowd! The alternative band, who is currently touring the UK in support of Royal Blood, took to their Twitter to express their shock about these disgusting incidents:
We are glad that the band is using the bad news to publicly speak out against sexual assault at their shows. It happens way too often that things like these are hushed up to avoid bad publicity. As you can see in the tweet above, Black Honey contacted “Girls Against” to support the victims. The group fights against sexual harassment/assault at live music events and you can always contact them if you need their support. Check out their website HERE!
