Paramore drummer Zac Farro has opened up about his brother and ex-bandmate’s past homophobic comments. Since the early 2000s, the pop-punk band has made massive waves with their hit singles like Misery Business and Ain’t It Fun.

However, alongside their record-breaking music, the group has also had their fair share of controversy. Back in 2010, fans were shocked when Josh and Zac Farro left Paramore after their Brand New Eyes tour. “For the last year, it hasn’t seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore,” the remaining members said in a statement. “We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy, and if that isn’t here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere.” Even though the band seemed to hold no ill feelings for Zac and Josh’s decision, the latter called out lead singer Hayley Williams for leaking their departure and being manipulated by her management in a deleted blog post (per Billboard.) While Zac returned to the band in 2017, Josh continued to alienate Paramore fans when he made vile homophobic comments on his Facebook page in 2020.

In the post, the 35-year-old guitarist called homosexuality a perversion and compared it to paedophilia. Shortly after Josh’s hateful comments made headlines, Williams took to Twitter and slammed the former member, stating: “There’s a reason there are only three people left in Paramore.
