"I grew up in what I think might be something like your bubble. You should at least try this one!"
Fans of Wilco should not be surprised to hear the indie rock figureheads are leftists. And yet some recent political social media posts from the band have incited trolling responses on their Facebook page, sparking frontman Jeff Tweedy to respond.
"Dear fellow citizens who are being mean in our comments section," Tweedy started in an open letter posted to Facebook on Monday (Jan. 23). "I don't know you so it's hard for me to accurately guess how much time you spend on your devices commenting on and unfollowing 'celebrities' and moderately well known music figures. My assumption is that it's more than even you would care to admit."
Striking a tone between heartfelt and snarky, Tweedy went on to say the negative response he received over recent photos of him at the Women's March on Saturday and the band with former President Barack Obama has inspired him to post more similar content.
