While neither Set It Off or Sad Summer Fest have detailed the allegations in question, L.I.F.T shared a statement this afternoon regarding the matter:
“In the last few days we’ve been made aware of situations where people felt that we have been inappropriate at a show. When we first heard about it we were shocked to find out that anyone had left out interactions feeling uncomfortable. To those who have walked away from meeting us feeling disrespected or unsafe in any way, please know that would never be our intention and we’re genuinely sorry. We want you to know that we are listening, and we want to do everything in our power to help make our shows a safe space for everyone, especially women.
“This is all new for us, meeting fans, signings, and while it’s a dream come true we also realize that our inexperience lead to trying to take photos and sign for people without any order. Moving forward, we will take extra precautions needed to make sure everyone is comfortable and self.
“We really hope this helps put some of you at ease and again, we are incredibly sorry to anyone who has been made uncomfortable. Thank you to our fan base for being there for us—just know we would never do anything to jeopardize this family, it is everything to us.”
