Flying Lotus apologizes for comments on Gaslamp Killer

Flying Lotus

After The Gaslamp Killer was accused of drugging and raping two women (which he denied), his former label home Brainfeeder posted a statement saying “We did not have any knowledge of the alleged incidents, and condemn any such actions across the board.” Brainfeeder boss Flying Lotus then had a different reaction at his Hollywood Forever Cemetery show on Saturday (10/14), where he ended his set with a Gaslamp Killer song and said to the crowd, “The internet is a fuckin’ liar. Ain’t nobody judge and jury but the fuckin’ law, okay?… Thank you guys so much for coming, let truth and justice have its day,” which was captured in a video.

Flying Lotus received much criticism for appearing to defend The Gaslamp Killer, and he has now apologized for his statements in an interview with HipHopDX:

I wanted to sincerely apologize for my comments at my show. I realize they were insensitive. This is a tough time for all of us, as men and women. I’m having trouble finding my voice in all of this. I am truly heartbroken. My stage has always been a place for what’s in my heart until now. I feel as internet-wielding people, we have to learn to give each other space to feel, to honor each other’s reactions and experiences without bullying. I care about this community and its impact so much.

He also said that the video didn’t tell the whole story: “There was a lot longer of a speech. It would be awesome to show the whole video. I came at it from a humble place.”
