System Of A Downin Serj Tankian: ”Netissä minun ja John Dolmayanin osaksemme saama viha ei ole oikeutettua”

Yhdysvaltalainen metalliyhtye System Of A Down on ollut viime aikoina otsikoissa laulaja Serj Tankianin ja rumpali John Dolmayanin eriävien poliittisten lausuntojen myötä. Serj Tankian on julkaissut Instagram-tilillään viestin, jossa tuomitsee asian tiimoilta saadun, ilmeisen rankan, palautteen. Hänen mukaansa hän ja Dolmayan ovat saaneet paljon kuraa niskaansa viime aikoina, eikä hän pidä netissä huutelijoiden toimintaa oikeutettuna. Tankian kertoi välittävänsä todella paljon yhtyetoveristaan eriävistä mielipiteistä huolimatta:

”My drummer and brother in law @johndolmayan_ whom I love and respect irrespective of our extremely polarized political commentary and differences has always been my stalwart ally in efforts for recognition of the Armenian genocide within Soad.

The amount of online hate and stupidity against him and I are unjustifiable: social media has created an erroneous digital society that partially thrives on this reality.

Remember irrespective of the stance, only artists that truly care and are impassioned will risk alienating their base for what they consider the truth. Our dilemma and possible fallacy is that we have two in one band. Some may consider that a weakness but the artistic, political and social dichotomy if not quadrichotomy (not a word) has made @systemofadown what it is today.

Thank you all for reading. We should all do more non-online reading :)”
