During Flaw’s March 12 show at the WC Social Club in Chicago, IL, Christopher Volz dropped the n-word onstage. The frontman used the racial slur after taking issue with the stage monitor mix. MetalSucks shared footage of that:
Volz said the following in the clip:
“There’s three of you N****s sitting right there [pointing]. I’d like one of you to come up here. You’re all white, so that’s not racist.
One of you guys need to come up here. I want one of you to come up here and hear these center wedges before we finish, just so you know what I actually went through tonight and how badass it is that I actually had no wedges.
Hey! I’m not fuckin’ around! One of you motherfuckers comes up on stage and listens to these wedges before we finish, otherwise you’re all getting rolled.”
Volz has since taken to social media to rant about cancel culture as well:
“Always remember… We are not descendants of fearful people. We are a nation of immigrants who have been given the gift of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This does not mean you don’t have to work for it, or can mooch off of someone else’s hard work and decades of blood, sweat, and tears just to suit your greed and cater to your feelings.
We are blessed with freedom of speech and expression, but this does not mean you can use that same freedom of speech and expression to try to oppress someone else’s or something you do not agree with. That in itself is in direct violation of the God given rights that have been sacrificed for and gifted to us. It’s also a direct double negative.
Cancel culture can not, and will not, abuse the very fundamental rights they are trying to extinguish by using the exact same rights they are objecting to while trying to cancel them. You just canceled yourself, by-proxy. That is simply wrong and won’t be tolerated. There is no color, there is no race, we are all human beings trying to survive on a rock spinning around a huge ball of fire.
We are all citizens of an amazing country. WE ALL BLEED RED. Grow some skin, if something offends you move the fuck on, stop expecting things you don’t work for, earn your keep, contribute to public service in some way, and stop trying to destroy the most amazing nation that has ever existed.
Facts may cause feelings…but feelings aren’t facts, they are your own interpretation of reality and it’s not your place to force your reality on anyone else. We have a list of personal rights that were established centuries ago.
Some may not know this but, America, our Constitutional Republic with a democratic voting system, and Capitalism as a whole… is an experiment. It is written in the oldest manuscripts we have and it was the only answer to truly separate from a ruling Monarchy…
We can and will lose it if we do not protect, fight, and stand up for it. None of us are more important than that. God bless you all!”
