Forbearance Remove Frontman Following Insensitive Tweet

577748_470377106337609_377044183_nThe melodic hardcore band Forbearance kicked out their frontman Jordan Kuruc following a highly insensitive and ignorant tweet regarding the recent bombing in Boston.  Read the full tweet and statement by the band after the jump.

 

“@jordankuruc: NHL is fucking rigged! Matt Cooke made a clean hit. I hope your city gets bombed again Boston.”

 

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It’s come to my attention that our singer has said something very inappropriate via social media that is incredibly out of line. (In fact, I just woke up to this backlash.) The statement he made is in NO way shape or form representative of ANY view this band has and even though I personally have nothing to do with what he said, I feel the need to apologize to anyone offended by his ignorant statement. Because of this, Jordan is now removed from this band. Thank you to the people that have brought this to our attention, and again, our apologies that you had to be exposed to such ignorance.

Signed,
– Forbearance.
