If you're into metal, you may be aware of Vilipend. Mike Crossley is the bass player.
A while ago, he and his wife, Lara, arranged a verbal deal to rent an apartment from a landlord known only as Suzanne. Things were going fine until Suzanne did a little reading up on Vilipend. That's when everything went all pear-shaped.
Here's a quote from an email from Suzanne and Mike:
We were quite ready to make a decision in your favour the other night. However, upon investigation of the band Vilipend, it has brought forward some concerns for us. We are uncomfortable with the energy that this music manifests.
Mike and Lara look at this as discrimination. From Classic Rock:
The point is not that a couple of twenty-somethings missed out on a decent apartment. If Lara and I were discriminated against as a dual full-time income, caucasian, middle-class, heterosexual couple with good references and credit checks, imagine the difficult somebody who doesn’t have those advantages must experience.
As far as the "energy that this music manifests," judge for yourself.
