Rock singer unleashes profane rant against Ron DeSantis during concert

 May 31, 2023

Paramore lead vocalist Haley Williams unleashed profane words against Florida Republican Governor and presidential candidate Ron DeSantis during a recent concert.

Williams shared the obscene remarks during her show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday.

The comments

"Haley Williams was performing at a festival in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday when she launched into a political diatribe. 'I’ll be happy to tell you I’m very f***ing comfortable talking politics,' she said as the crowd cheered its approval," Breitbart News reported.

"'If you vote for Ron DeSantis, you’re fucking dead to me,' she added to even louder cheers. 'Is that comfortable enough for anyone?'"

The background

"Williams’ strong words came just days after the Florida governor officially announced his presidential bid with a Twitter Spaces event alongside Twitter owner Elon Musk," Fox News reported.

"The Florida governor is former President Donald Trump’s chief rival for the Republican presidential nomination and has cemented his status as a front-runner in the race with his staunchly conservative legislative record in Florida that has infuriated progressives throughout the country," the outlet added.

"Williams, who co-founded the band in 2004, has previously been vocal about laws restricting drag shows and gender-affirming care," Mediaite reported.

"She took to her Instagram to vocalize her support for the various communities after Tennessee began restricting both drag performances and transition care earlier this year," it added.

The singer's attacks represent the violent rhetoric of those opposing conservatives in general and DeSantis in particular in recent weeks.

The Florida governor has long been seen as the top Trump alternative for the GOP nomination. His recent announcement hopes to improve his polling numbers as the 2024 election battle ramps up.

The targeted attack from Paramore's singer shows that DeSantis has become the main Republican opponent in the eyes of many, something the governor will likely see as a positive sign in his efforts to reach more voters during the primary election season ahead of the first debates that begin in August.
