Fireworks and Transit Members Tweet About Homophobic...

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/27/13)
Both Fireworks and Transit members have tweeted pretty damning statements about the Empire venue in Springfield, VA. From what we've been able to piece together, it looks like the promoter used hateful speech -- and then shit hit the fan. We've reached out to try and find out exactly what happened.

Update: A statement about everything that happened, from Floyd James, can be found here.

Lots of this in the scene lately. Interesting to see so much of it now being put on social networks and how that affects those who speak like that

I mean... Was this meant as hate? I didn't read too much into the story but I call people ******s all the with no homophobic intention what so ever. If this was meant as gay hate, well then yeah, fuck that venue.

just because you dont intend for it to be homophobic doesn't mean it isn't.

Well first, it's never appropriate to use that word. and second, its especially not appropriate when you're a staff member and presumably he said it in front of all those people.
