@Northern Lefty why do you feel the need to defend a fat shaming AR rep, you won’t be getting any free guitars from it
Northern Lefty
Northern Lefty 2 ամիս առաջ
@projectgoatse because we know for sure ibanez chose not to endorse because of his weight? And if so, who cares? They can choose their artist roster and who they want to represent the brand. Not sure why anyone jumps on the fat shaming bandwagon.
projectgoatse 2 ամիս առաջ
@Northern Lefty telling someone that you’re too fat for an endorsement is literally fat shaming. It’s got nothing to do with his ability on the instrument.

Around like 2010 or 11 when animals as leaders was just now popping off here they came the Charleston South Carolina for a small show at a small rig that my buddy booked for them the play at his venue and I got to talk to and have conversation with Javier and he's a really chill dude. Before they came to that venue I think a couple days before Lauren Hill had a performance at the music farm that I missed and I was kind of pissed off at and Javier was also kind of pissed that he missed it because he didn't know about it lol. His 8 string was the first i ever held in my hands already being a 7 string player. The next few shows he actually recognized me when I came through and actually talk to me which was dope. I kinda wish he would remember this but at a show in myrtle beach they did i started pop locking in the middle of one of their songs and after the song was over tosin announced that Javier saw this guy dancing in the mosh and it was his first time ever seeing someone dance to their music like that and turns out it was me lol. They put the spot light on me and everything lol. good times.
