Statement from Jacob
On his own Twitter, frontman Jacob Hoggard added his own statement. “I have never behaved in non-consensual sexual behaviour in my life. Ever…. However, over the last 13 years, I have behaved in a way that objectified women.”
He went on to call his treatment of women “reckless and dismissive,” adding, “It’s time for me to change.”
