What you need to know about Crosa Rosa-gate.
- The link is NOT a screamer, virus, etc. Its literally just a youtube link to a video on their channel. Its weird as shit and the thumbnail is creepy but its not dangerous. That being said, probs don’t click the hotmail account that sent it. I’ve seen two different people say that they did and have since had emails saying a 3rd party had gained access to their tumblr accounts. I have reset my password just in case.
- This is NOT a targeted attack on trans women or even trans people in general. Look at the tags, this shit is getting sent to everyone. I’m a cis girl, and I’ve been sent it twice.
- Crosa Rosa denies being behind this spam, however they’ve done something like this before. A tweet of theirs said that something like this was no big deal because “lots of people do it so who cares” (tweet has since been deleted)
- The video in question, “Like a Lady” features clumsy imagery and themes that some trans people have taken offence to, as well as flashing that may disturb epileptics.
- Hasty “apology” posts were very desperate to avoid responsibility for the rudeness of the spam and the offence taken by trans people (all apologies have been deleted and their social media accounts are only reblogging/retweeting praise and ignoring the issue)
- A friend of the band went batshit at another user (who tried to talk to the band about this civilly), abusing and harassing them and generally behaving like an asshat.
- Even though they’ve behaved like crap and will not come out of this well, DO NOT send the band or their associates death threats! Only scum do that.
