Hayley Williams clarifies she’s very much alive following memorial tweet
The frontwoman posted two screenshots of tweets that had been spreading fake stories about the band.
The first screenshot claims that the band is in the studio working on their 6th studio album. The second says that Hayley Williams has died.“This week on The Internet Hurts: I’m *not* dead (I don’t think) and @paramore are *not* in the studio right now making out 6th album (I’m sorry).”
It’s definitely not cool to be sharing fake stories in general, so hopefully, Williams cleared things up for fans with her blunt tweet.
More Paramore news
Speaking of Twitter, Williams recently weighed in on the controversy regarding women’s bodily autonomy on Twitter. In a tweet, the Paramore frontwoman calls upon men specifically to direct their attention to the recent changes in the government and lawmaking.
Additionally, Williams makes a comparison to the Hulu show The Handmaid’s Tale, suggesting that some plot points could become a reality if men don’t start supporting women with allyship.“If you’re a man and you think that The Handmaid’s Tale is a well-crafted show but maybe not the best way for a modern society to operate then it’s a really good time to start speaking out against the current war on women’s bodies/minds,” Williams says in a tweet. “We need your allyship.”
Recently, many states have been making stricter laws surrounding the topic of abortion. For example, Georgia’s version of the Heartbeat Bill, which could go into effect as early as 2020 according to The New York Times, would ban abortions once a heartbeat could be detected. Additionally, if doctors in Georgia were to perform an abortion past the estimated six-week threshold, they could face up to 99 years in prison, according to the Washington Post.
Since the start of 2019, other states such as Ohio, Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi have passed similar laws.While many women have been voicing their opinions on the recent laws and ideologies, so have other members of the scene including blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, SWMRS, Sharptooth, All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth and Anti-Flag.
Of course, the frontwoman tied the fast food joint’s new promo to the band’s latest album After Laughter. Additionally, Williams applauds Burger King’s vegan options.“After Laughter album cycle ends: BK starts serving a vegan burger and the ‘unhappy meal,’ Williams says in a tweet. “We coulda had it all.”
