Flying Lotus comes out in support of The Gaslamp Killer
At the conclusion of a recent performance, Flying Lotus came out in support of The Gaslamp Killer, who was accused of rape last week. The Gaslamp Killer is alleged to have drugged and raped two women in a Twitter post from October 12.
At his October 14 show, Flying Lotus wrapped things up with a message of support to the embattled producer and played one of his tracks for a finale. Before playing The Gaslamp Killer’s track, Flying Lotus told 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.
The Gaslamp Killer was a longtime associate of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label, though the label was quick to release a statement that they had not released any of DJ and producer’s music in some time and that he is not currently signed to the label.
It remains unclear at this time if the authorities are investigating the allegations against The Gaslamp Killer.
