Last week, Trapt and Smash Mouth performed at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Rally in South Dakota. The event was at the center of controversy since the majority of the crowd did not wear masks or social distance amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the event, photos emerged that revealed how few people came out for Trapt's performance. Soon after, Trapt released a photo that seemingly rebutted the idea that their show had a small turnout. Now, the band are accused of cropping a photo that shows a misleading number of people in the crowd.

Shortly after this, Trapt shared their own photos that appear to show a larger audience than the first image originally presented.

Trapt further defended their crowd turnout after it was suggested again that no one actually showed up.

Along with this, the album sales debate for Trapt's latest release Shadow Work has also reemerged. Last month, it was reported that only 600 copies of the album were sold in its first week. Since the figures were released, Trapt have disputed this information. Now, the band say they are approaching on 4,000 albums sold.


Trapt then, of course, decided to bring up Donald Trump while disputing that their album didn't sell well.

Trapt then admit to looking at their own album sale figures wrong and say they are "doing great" considering they only had Facebook to promote the album.
