Emarosa Give Jonny Craig The Proverbial Boot

Dumped

Lexington, Kentucky-based rockers Emarosa told Alternative Press that they’ve dumped Jonny Craig, that douche bag who scammed his own fans out of money he then used to buy drugs.

“As of today, Jonny Craig is no longer a member of Emarosa,” the band says. “This decision has been a hard one to make, but we feel it is in the best interest for the band going forward.”

Good for them. More bands should stand up to their insane frontmen and kick them the fuck out when they bring negative attention to the group. Good for them. They suck, but at least they have balls.

The band is not canceling any of its upcoming shows, and has not named a replacement for Craig, who took the news in stride.

“I got no hard feelings to any of the dudes in Emarosa I am more than happy to be with Dance Gavin Dance and working on my solo shit,” says Craig. “Hope they can keep up.”

What a douche.
