Tom DeLonge is setting the record straight on a report published by Ars Technica on Monday (Oct. 15). The article claimed that the Blink-182 frontman's UFO research organization, To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science, has accumulated a $37,432,000 deficit according to a mid-year SEC filing.
DeLonge took to Instagram to quickly shut down what he called a "blatant lie." "APPARENTLY, THIS WRITER CAN’T READ," he wrote. "BTW- TTSA never even raised $37m!!? So how in the hell did we spend it?! Lord. I ask all of you that believe in the @tothestarsacademy mission to go write a complaint on their website RIGHT NOW for trying to hurt an admirable effort to help humanity by using negative attacks and—-> lies."
