(Un)Official Metal Thread

There's some allegations of rape from 2000 coming out against Maynard from Tool/A Perfect Circle/Puscifer. One specifically, then there's a few stories from different people on the Tool subreddit (but I linked to the thread that's on r/indieheads), and the guy who runs Toolshed telling stories about how Maynard would pick up teenage girls (seemingly knowing the age of consent laws wherever he went, suspiciously) on tour back in the 90s. If you take the Twitter thread out of the story, it's all just your typical skeevy rockstar shit, with stagehands and roadies trying to get girls to come backstage. But the Twitter thread story is pretty damning, since it's straight up rape.

This really hurts me, because Tool is one of my favorite bands and was my first concert experience back in 2007. Maynard has always seemed really.... uh, weird, I guess. It's really painful to see some of the responses from Tool fans, since a good percentage of their fanbase are dudebros or basement dweller types, and you can already imagine how they're responding to this.
