We’ve done our fair share of reporting on Krewella here at Your EDM. While we would like to report on them less, events keep happening and readers keep  gobbling up the content. Yet if you’ve read our articles and analyzed our messages, we’re just trying to share events of the day and support EDM producers that find themselves on the outliers of the general population of consumers. The trio skyrocketed to stardom in a way not often seen in EDM and they’ve had their fair share of criticisms to boot. As a two-woman, one-man band, “It’s almost as if being the female in the group, it’s assumed that you are purely there as a puppet and completely void of any musical abilities, creativity, or vision.”


When the news of the lawsuit broke, accusations and name-calling ran wild without much consideration for anyone they were directed at. “Whore” and “slut” were the most common, but in general it seemed that most people were quick to get behind Kris Trindl and ally themselves with him, against the sisters. For whatever reason, this seemed like the popular thing to do.

If you know anything about legal cases, you will know that speaking about an ongoing case is basically taboo. It’s clear that Jahan’s and Yasmine’s silence were not due to shame or humiliation, but due to contractual obligation. I can only imagine how it must feel not being able to respond to these horrific comments, yet I have to give them credit for soldiering on. Today, in an op-ed on Billboard, Jahan Yousef finally broke that silence and spoke out about bullying, sexism and bad behavior from many involved. While the title of the op-ed is clearly tongue-in-cheek, it speaks volumes about what was going on in the social media sphere during this whole fiasco.
