After collaborating with Marshmello in March for “Here With Me,” CHVRCHES have called out the producer on social media for his most recent collaborative effort.
Marshmello recently released a new song called “Light It Up” featuring Tyga and Chris Brown, both of whom have been accused or convicted of abuse against women.
Tyga was sued in 2013 for sexual battery, fraud, invasion of privacy, and infliction of emotional distress while Brown was arrested in 2009 after beating his then girlfriend, Rihanna.
After the release of the new song, CHVRCHES released the following statement on social media:
“We are really upset, confused and disappointed by Marshmello’s choice to work with Tyga and Chris Brown,” it reads.
“We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind.”
Marshmello has yet to respond.
