You may have seen on the internet rumors floating around involving the tour of Datsik and Space Jesus. Many women are coming out and saying that Datsik sexually assaulted them while they were intoxicated and that he gives out nametags to girls he calls “tulsa” meaning “a slut.” He is also known for making jokes about rape and sexual misconduct on Twitter, and then deleting them. Due to Space Jesus’s tour and including Datsik on it, he has been dragged into the accusations but no real proof has proven him guilty of anything.
In fact they both came out with statements and one included Space Jesus quitting the tour with Datsik. Datsik’s statement on the allegations:
Space Jesus’s response to the statement and allegations:
Consent is an extremely important subject that must not be taken lightly. I was raised by a strong mother who taught me the importance of valuing and respecting women, and I would never knowingly act in a way to compromise a woman’s integrity.
Tour/shows are an awesome place for people to celebrate and enjoy music with their friends and fellow fans – and it is imperative that we, as artists and as people, stand as allies to victims of sexual abuse in an industry that should only have room for love and respect.
In light of the allegations going around today against Datsik, I have decided that effective immediately, I am pulling off the Ninja Nation tour indefinitely, until my team and I can get to the bottom of this issue and investigate allegations surrounding the tour. I DO NOT support sexual abuse in any way, and until I find out more about this, I am not going to play.
Sexual misconduct is not funny or a joke, if you see something, say something!
