My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way Condemns Emo-Bashers
Emo fans have been threatened with violence in Mexico in recent weeks, but apparently Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance has taken up the cause. When MCR took the stage this past Saturday at Zero Fest in Mexico City, Way immediately spoke in earnest to the crowd, according to MTV News:
"I want to say something today before we continue. Recently we've been hearing a lot of stuff about some violence here in your country having to do with kids who want to wear black t-shirts … or some kind of bullshit stuff like that. We don't want to see any fucking violence! We came here for one reason, and that's to be at the fucking rock show!"
Gerard appears to be the first major music personality to stand up and say something in defense of the subculture that has been discriminated against recently. His profanity-laden rant could be the first step in some sort of peace treaty between emos and the ruffians who would impose their will upon them.
