The one ‘slippery slope’ is the farce ethical equivalency on the coronary heart of this hypocritical perspective. I’ve nothing towards this man nor his band. I simply hate artists being taken benefit of to whitewash Genocidal dictatorships.”

Tankian has been constant together with his criticism of Think about Dragons for enjoying Azerbaijan, penning an open letter to the band prematurely of the live performance accusing the nation of “crimes towards humanity” for his or her navy actions, which he described as a looming “genocide.”
