Cory Brandan, the frontman for the band Norma Jean, has posted to Twitter, calling out fans who have illegally downloaded the band's albums. Spoiler alert: he's not happy.
Anyone that has ever downloaded a Norma Jean record. You owe me money. I hope you had enough money today to buy your family groceries...I mean 'for free' of course. Ya know… illegally. Stolen. Theft. Don't get your feeling hurt. It's ok if you steal from me. Anything else I can do for free for you? Spoiled brats! It's about time someone got pissed about this! I hope you guys know what it feels like to have thousands of dollars stolen from you only to be told you have a an attitude about it. BTW! I appreciate and LOVE all of you that have supported us over the years. I hope you are all blessed!
While illegal downloading is the worst-kept secret on the internet, it continues to be a controversy. While some bands embrace it, others, like Norma Jean, aren't exactly fans.
What do you guys think? Are Cory's words justified? Or do you think he's getting too angry over this?
