Arcade Fires Win Butler Accused Of Sexual Misconduct
Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler has been accused of sexual misconduct by four people. However, the singer claims that the relationships were consensual.
According to a report published by Pitchfork, three female Arcade Fire fans and a fourth person who is a gender-fluid individual who uses they/them pronouns claimed that they had had sexual interactions with Butler when they were between the ages of 18 and 23 that they deemed inappropriate due to an age gap and “power dynamics” between them and the singer.
In a statement given to the publication, Butler acknowledged having sexual interactions with each of the four people but maintained that they were consensual and not initiated by him.
“While these relationships were all consensual, I am very sorry to anyone who I have hurt with my behavior,” he wrote in a statement to Pitchfork. “As I look to the future, I am continuing to learn from my mistakes and working hard to become a better person, someone my son can be proud of.”
“I’m sorry I wasn’t more aware and tuned in to the effect I have on people – I f—d up, and while not an excuse, I will continue to look forward and heal what can be healed, and learn from past experiences,” Butler added.
