On Thursday, the New York-based queer punk band PWR BTTM posted a letter on Facebook, reacting to allegations of improper behavior by its lead singer Ben Hopkins. Though PWR BTTM did not address any specific alleged incident, the band did acknowledge that there may be “survivor(s) of abuse,” and such stated that they were setting up an email, which Hopkins could not access, for anyone who claims to be a victim. On Friday (May 12), Jezebel spoke with one person who says that Hopkins attempted to have sex with her without her consent, then again while she was sleeping, and then on a second occasion a month later.
