The singer of alternative rock band Paramore took the stage on Saturday night with a simple message for supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis.
Florida’s right-wing governor has made the state increasingly hostile to marginalized communities, including refugees, black people and LGBTQ Americans. He also signed into law a law expected to make it nearly impossible for Floridians to seek abortion care and has prevented schools from teaching students about historical events related to race and gender.
Williams co-founded Paramore in 2007, when the band was largely inspired by punk rock, a genre known for its anti-establishment stances on current events and politics. The Grammy-winning band is currently on its This Is Why tour and opened for Taylor Swift this spring.
