Don Giovanni Records owner asks labels to drop The Queers and Screeching Weasel, then apologizes

Contributed by david5345. Posted by adame (g+) on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Image In an open letter to Mike Park of Asian Man Records and Todd Congelliere of Recess Records posted on Facebook, Joe Steinhardt of Don Giovanni Records asked those labels to drop The Queers and Screeching Weasel.

Steinhardt cited Joe Queer's recent Facebook post in support of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson as well as other incidents for his stance.

In response to Steinhardt's post, artist Mitch Clem shut down an eBay auction for a poster he'd previously designed for the two bands, citing discomfort with the "idea that someone would have my art for those bands proudly displayed on their wall."

After an outpouring of opinion on both sides of the argument, Steinhardt posted a second time, apologizing for the initial post.
