Arcade Fire just keep pissing other musicians off. The band recently released the video for “We Exist,” their latest Reflektor single. In the video, Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield plays a man who struggles with his identity and wears woman’s clothing. Today, Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace called out the band on their choice of actor.
The topic is obviously close to home for Grace, who’s most recent album with Against Me! is titled Transgender Dysphoria Blues. You can watch Arcade Fire’s video for “We Exist” below. Let us know what you think of all this.
Grace took to Twitter:
Dear @arcadefire , maybe when making a video for a song called "We Exist" you should get an actual "Trans" actor instead of Spider-Man?— Laura Jane Grace (@LauraJaneGrace) May 22, 2014
