JJJ ‘left wing conservatives’
Onstage, supporting the Smashing Pumpkins this week in Sydney, Wolfmother lead singer Andrew Stockdale has attacked triple j, telling the crowd that 'triple j can go fuck themselves' .
He has followed that up with further attacks on the radio station on social media, and his comments have attracted over 10,000 'likes'.
The dispute began at Splendour in the Grass last weekend, when triple j tweeted that Wolfmothers audience were 99.95% male, and 0.05% other, Stockdale tweeted in response;
'Meanwhile triple j stats shown to be 100% lame', following that up with these comments onstage in Sydney; "Left-wing conservatives sitting up in their offices on their Government paid wages, triple j can go fuck themselves"
Now the Twitter argument has become more personal, with triple j's Tom Ballard tweeting last night;
"Sorry Andrew Stockdale, I disagree, I don’t think Triple J is lame. Then again, I don’t have a song on the soundtrack to Shrek the Third"
Stockdale has been on the record as saying that he believes since Wolfmother have not been enjoying major success recently, triple j have dumped them, despite their early support for the band.
It has been a controversial week on social media for triple j, with the Wolfmother controversy following the Facebook campaign attacking 'The Doctor' over his commentary at Splendour (see here).
