Ice Nine Kills show protester mocks Disney ban with Mickey costume

It looks like a certain Disney mouse may have followed the band all the way to Indiana.

You may recall when Ice Nine Kills were forced to pull from the Orlando date of the Falling In Reverse tour due to their Disney ban. The band later announced a “revenge show” at Orlando’s Soundbar, complete with Disney-inspired merch.

Now, it looks like the Mouse may have followed them all the way to Indiana after fans spotted a protestor costumed as Mickey Mouse picketing outside the venue.

To backtrack, the band were set to perform at the Orlando’s House Of Blues on April 26 as part of the FIR tour. It was discovered by fans back in February that Ice Nine Kills were no longer included on the Orlando date.

When one fan inquired about the Florida date, INK revealed they had been banned due to their “violent imagery.”

“Disney’s House of Blues in Orlando banned us from performing because of our violent imagery. It’s a shame because I know I’ve seen Donald Duck at a show before, he’s an INK fan.”

INK later responded to the ban by releasing a limited run of Disney-inspired merch as well as announcing their “revenge” show.

Currently, Ice Nine Kills are on their The Silver Scream tour, hitting the Citadel in Indianapolis last night.

Prior to the show, a few fans took to Twitter to reveal a familiar figure picketing outside the venue with a sign that said “FUCK INK” on one side and “It’s not Walt’s fault” on the other.

Evidently, Mickey is not a metal fan.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
