#outhedley2k18 mostly going down on Twitter, but I'm on there rarely (ironically Tommy and Chris follow me on there) and I screenshotted some of the fan encounters being shared. I've been a fan of this band since 2005, though my interest has waned quite a bit in recent years because of changes in my taste of music and just being older etc. They only ever do love songs, and there's so much more to music than that.
But I've seen them on almost every one of their tours. Met them all before. Jacob even went onto my Instagram photos a few years ago and left a comment that was a joke implying porn (he left a link that looked like a porn site, called cabin porn, but when clicked on it was literally a photo of a cabin), which now that I look back (especially reading about his online behaviour DM-ing teenaged girls) should have been a red flag.
I had read some comments online years ago about Jacob specifically, but not as many and not nearly as bad as what's coming out now! People have been talking about his behaviour for a long time. Too damn long for none of it to be true. Just the fact that they were the suspects in a drugging and raping of a fan at one of their own shows, and there's police report and someone there who could tell something was going on, is terrifying.
I'm disappointed as a fan. That they chose to be such trash, when they could do so much good in tge world with their talents and influence. Why prey on kids?? Wtf? Why be pedophiles, and take advantage of young fans who are the only reason you have careers and money??? #hedley #jacobhoggard #chriscrippin #tommymac The only member that I haven't seen a specific allegation about is Dave, but I highly doubt he didn't know or wasn't complicit. And who knows, a story about him is bound to come out...
