The drummer from one of my absolute favorite bands Sigur Ros has been kicked out of the band and pretty much had his entire life and career ruined because of a sketchy instagram post made by a woman who works at a strip club. Her version of the story is that she willingly went to his place for a while and talked and then:
"Boyd (accuser) told Pitchfork that after a minute or so in bed with Dýrason, who was either naked or in boxers, he said he wanted “to feel your skin on my skin.” Boyd told Pitchfork, “And I was like, ‘OK,’ and I kind of like got naked next to him and we were cuddling, and then he kissed me and we were kissing for a couple of minutes."
A few months later she makes a public post on instagram accusing him of rape. You can read the article yourself its absolutely ridiculous and he denies that they even had sex yet because of an instagram post by some random lady one of the greatest musicians of the 21st century has just had his entire career ruined. No other women have come forward with allegations, there is not a shred of evidence, the woman is an unreliable witness and he was crucified anyways.
Similar thing has happened to Jesse Lassey from Brand New.
Funny how less talented but FAR more wealthy artists like Chris Brown can continue to get away with beating up women on a daily basis not to mention the vast amount of gangs, violence, drugs and sexual crimes in the hip hop community so why is the drummer from my little icelandic post-rock band getting screwed instead of actual predators.
