The lead singer of alternative rock band Paramore took the stage on Saturday night with a simple message for supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis.
The right-wing Florida governor has made the state increasingly hostile toward marginalized communities including refugees, Black people and LGBTQ Americans. He also signed a law that’s expected to make it nearly impossible for Floridians to seek abortion care and has blocked schools from teaching students about historical events concerning race and gender.
Williams co-founded Paramore in 2007, when the band largely drew inspiration from punk rock, a genre known for its anti-establishment stances on current events and politics. The Grammy-winning band is currently on its This Is Why tour and opened for Taylor Swift this spring.
