Joyce Manor took a stand against stage-diving at a recent show. In the video below, a “grown man” tries to stage dive, and frontman Barry Johnson cuts the song and pulls him back onstage. “Hey man, how tall are you?" He asks the stage-diver. "How much do you weigh, if you don't mind me asking?"

Johnson then asks a girl in the audience how much she weighs and says, “It's completely unacceptable for him to impose himself on top of you.” You can watch footage of the event below. (Skip to 1:00.)

Johnson then took to the band’s Twitter to voice his opinion:
