Yesterday, a tweet began circulating that contained screenshots of a Facebook post that leveled allegations of assault and abuse at the queer power-pop punk duo PWR BTTM, who are days away from the release of their new album Pageant.

The tweet is here:

The information in the Facebook post also points back to a picture of one of the members of the duo, Ben Hopkins, posing with a swatiska, an old image that he’s previously addressed on Twitter as part of a phase when he thought being “politically incorrect” was punk. He’s also apologize for the image vociferously and held an open line of communication for anyone who has hurt and offended by it.
