Hayley Williams and her alternative rock band Paramore might have fewer fans following a Saturday performance in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was then that she very bluntly addressed the crowd on her political views and even threatened them should they vote for a particular 2024 presidential candidate.

While headlining at the Adjacent Music Festival, Williams addressed the political arena, beginning by saying that “someone” had said they wished she felt “more comfortable talking politics on tour.”

And so she then said, “If you vote for Ron DeSantis, you’re f***ing dead to me. Is that comfortable enough for anyone?”

If you haven’t heard, DeSantis made his official announcement to run for the presidency (finally) on Wednesday. Naturally, his opposition has been up in arms since.

And apparently, Williams is part of that number.

Of course, that shouldn’t really surprise anyone given a certain performance she gave last year in Florida in which she called out DeSantis’ Parental Rights in Education bill, which forbids Florida public schools from teaching sexual orientation, gender identity, and the like to students in third grade and younger and limits its use in higher grades.

Critics of the bill, such as Williams, labeled it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. And so, during one concert, she began chanting the word “gay” until she was singing it.

So naturally, she is unhappy about the man who instituted this bill and is now running for the White House.

But I doubt all her fans feel the same way. After all, this woman also endorsed former Texas representative and failed presidential, gubernatorial, and senatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke. Given his lack of popularity, I don’t think anyone should be listening to Williams about anything in politics.
