As previously reported, Flaw’s Christopher Volz recently made headlines after dropping the n-word onstage during the band’s March 12 show at the WC Social Club in Chicago, IL. Now, the frontman has taken to social media to issue an apology for using the slur.
Volz said the following:
“Hey Flaw Family, I need to address the recent video and backlash that surfaced this weekend. I made a huge mistake and in the heat of my anger I used an unacceptable group of words towards another white person. I in no way meant it to be a racial thing and it is being construed on social media as if I made a statement about my beliefs and that is simply not true.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have always been an advocate for equality and even wrote a song called ‘Bleed Red‘ 5 years ago that was all about ending racism (link below). Flaw has always had all genders and races on our team, from managers to agents to labels to road crew and we always will.
I have worked so hard for the past 25 years to build my career and I don’t want something like this to ruin it for anyone. I take responsibility for my actions, apologize for my melt down and hope that you can all forgive me.”
