Attila Frontman Defends Use Of ‘Faggot,’ Claims He Is Not A Homophobe

attila 2013

Attila frontman Chris Fronzak, known to many as Fronz, has taken to Twitter to respond to allegations that he is a homophobe.

Anyone familiar with the world of Attila knows the band essentially makes their living on controversy. Their new album, About That Life, features talk of hard-partying, violence against haters, sex, drug use, and pretty much every hot button topic in between. On the song “Callout,” which famously lead the Westboro Baptist Church to announce a protest of the band’s upcoming Kansas performance, Fronz tells listeners that those who hate gay people should be beat literally moments before using the term “faggot.” It may seem normal for a band who thrives on getting a rise out of people to go this route lyrically, but the negative reaction has apparently been so great that Fronz felt he needed to clear the air.

Taking to Twitter with a series of posts over the weekend, Fronz wrote:

“I JUST WANT @WBCSays TO FUCKING DIE, I’VE NEVER MET MORE IGNORANT UNEDUCATED FAGGOTS MY WHOLE LIFE. TOUCH MY FUCKING PUSSY.”

“Does the word “faggot” really offend people? Seriously? A WORD OFFENDS YOU? Hahaha silly faggots, I’m no homophobe.”

“OH REALLY? I OFFEND YOU? YOU DONT LIKE ME….. COOL, SUCK MY FUCK.”

“At the end of the day, you can hate me all you want, but I’m the only motherfucker that says whatever the fuck I want.”

As you can imagine, the kickback from those already annoyed has been near-deafening. We doubt Fronz will change his mind anytime soon.

We’re interested to know where you stand on this issue. In my opinion, anyone who thinks equality can be reached while the term ‘faggot’ is still considered acceptable in casual conversations is part of the problem. What about you? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on this ongoing debate.

About That Life is in stores now. We’re not telling you to buy it, but if you feel you must then you can visit any digital or physical retailer of heavy music and pick it up at your earliest convenience.
