Heavy Metal Singer Stops Concert to Defend Woman From Sexual Assault
Women shouldn’t have to worry about choosing between enjoying music at concerts and protecting their bodies from assault — but at a concert Friday night in the Netherlands, the band playing on stage realized that’s exactly what was happening.
The heroic lead singer of the Architects, Sam Carter, stopped his band from playing in the middle of a concert to call out a sexual assault he saw happening in the crowd.
The heavy metal band was performing at the Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands, when Carter stopped the music to speak to the crowd.
“I saw a girl, a woman, crowdsurfing over here, and I’m not gonna f—-ing point the piece of shit out that did it, but I saw you f—-ing grab at her boob,” Carter said angrily from the stage. “I saw it. It is f—-ing disgusting and there is no f—-ing place for that shit.”
