Jack Off Jill Back on Facebook – ‘Jack Off Jill Is No More’

Jack off Jill official is back on Facebook with a lengthy post concerning topics like bullying, rape, memories, and most importantly, the ending of the band. Today, it was posted,

Sadly, Jack Off Jill is no more. We are proud that our music still resonated and has helped people. We hope it continues to do so. We are all very proud of what we have accomplished.

Compared to the last post, discussed here in a recent article, this one seems more coherent with fewer typos. Either this is another individual posting on behalf of the band, or Addams has calmed from her last posting. It goes on to say that the official Facebook page will become a “safe place” for fans and themselves to discuss what they have been through.

If you are a sexist, racist, homophobic, or a rape sympathizer, please find another place on Facebook to spread your venom and vitriol.

Going further, the post discussed the recent suicides of musicians, blaming pressure, secrets, drugs, and influence for the occurrences.

All we can do now is make this place a place where fans can agree to disagree without threatening to rape the other. The last 48 hours have been eye opening. A few bad apples who could not fathom what was being said is true and would defend a person they do not know to the death.

This is without a doubt referencing the latest post concerning accusations against Jeordie White A.K.A. Twiggy Ramirez. Addams still maintains her claims, which have yet to be publicly either proven or disproven.

This is not the first time that Jack Off Jill has disbanded, as it also occurred in 2000 to be reunited in 2015. Perhaps this is simply another hiatus, but maybe it is the end for the once prominent Riot Grrrl group.
