Fulltone received heavy backlash after the guitar and bass effects company's founder, Mike Fuller, went on an offensive social media tirade slamming the ongoing protests for justice following George Floyd's murder at the hands of police.
"What is this like night 4 of looting with 100% impunity. The p---- Mayor and Governor don’t give a s--- about small businesses, and it’s never been more clear," he wrote in a since-deleted post, adding a comment, "Ahh I feel better, and flushed out some prissy boys who were raised to pee sitting down. Now I’ll delete."
After a Fullton user complained to the company's email address, Fuller himself responded with an equally hostile tone as his original post. "I am begging you to sell your pedals because you actually don’t deserve them," a screenshot of the email posted to a fanpage reads. "You are actually so racist that you believe the Good people who are protesting are the same as the Organized gang banger criminals who are looting ‘storefronts.' Those ‘storefronts’ are good hardworking people’s lives and livelihoods. I’m fact if I see you with a Fulltone pedal I will tag it and break into your house and loot it from you, because it’s my free expression to do so… right?"
