Josh Farro compared homosexuality to paedophilia on Facebook and Hayley Williams was quick to slam him for it.

Hayley Williams has no time for homophobia and she has just called out her former Paramore bandmate, Josh Farro, over it.

Yesterday (Oct 28), a Paramore fan tweeted: "not josh farro being openly homophobic to cap off 2020", alongside a photo of a Facebook comment Josh made in which he compares homosexuality to paedophilia. Josh wrote that paedophilia is "not a preference it's a perversion just like homosexuality." Josh also recently shared posts supporting Donald Trump on his page.

Now, Hayley Williams has taken to Twitter to respond to Josh's comments and openly support Paramore's LGBTQ+ fans.

Late last night (Oct 28), Hayley tweeted: "there’s a reason there are only 3 people left in @paramore. surprise, haters, it ain’t cause of me. She then added: "paramore do not condone religiously/politically dogmatic beliefs which leave our LGBTQ+ friends, fans, & family feeling abandoned and hopeless."

Hayley continued: "and ya know, if that doesn’t jive with you, well, feel free to go to where all past members of paramore have gone which is literally anywhere else but Paramore. to paramore’s LGBTQ+ family (and @ColormeBrian i am talkin straight to you) you are full of love and you are loved."

We have no choice but to stan Hayley Williams.
