Indie Wrestler Veda Scott Responds to Kings of Leon Bass Player’s Twitter Slut Shaming Attempt

veda scott jared followill kings of leon slut shaming

Veda Scott found herself in the middle of a Twitter battle last night between Kings of Leon’s Jared Followill and the entirety of the wrestling community — and it was all over a Seinfeld reference.

The incident played out on Monday night after “Speedball” Mike Bailey responded to Followill’s now infamous tweet from Sunday with “Hey, Kings of Leon. The washed up alternative rock band store called. They’re running out of you.”

The joke was a clear reference to the Seinfeld episode “The Comeback” and Scott replied simply with a shrimp emoji in reference to the same thing.

However, Followill decided that the best comeback for that was to tell her: “Close your legs.”

The Grammy winner quickly deleted the tweet, but Scott was not silent about the slut-shaming attempt Tuesday morning on Twitter. “SO YEAH the litmus for if you’re a trash pile is ‘do you respond to criticism with misogyny/homophobia/transphobia?’”

Followill has not responded to Scott’s tweets. Must be busy at the jerk store.

    So basically, she can dish out insults, but can’t take them. Okay.

      That’s not an “insult”, it’s misogyny. It’s not OK. Her reply was clever and funny. His, not so much.

        in·sult
        verb
        inˈsəlt/
        1.
        speak to or treat with disrespect or scornful abuse.

        It was an insult, regardless of how classless it was. She can dish it out but can’t take it.

      • THAT guy

        LMAO. uh oh. Liberal snowflake alert.

        • Nickfab88

          Calling someone a slut for no reason just to be a dick is not cool so fuk this band never heard of them.

          • Jamalc

            “for no reason”

            God, you white knights are absolute idiots.

    • Ewj55

      No she made a reference to Seinfeld…only a tool would escalate the situation by slut shaming her

      • Jamalc

        A Seinfeld reference in which George INSULTED someone you moron!

  • Brandon Layer

    He just gave Veda Scott more publicity than she’s ever had before which is next to none. She does use big words though so I’m sure she’s a really smart.

    • James Burnett

      she graduated from drexel university school of law

    • Ewj55

      Hey Brandon, what law school did you go to?

  • Louis

    Kings of Leon are not my favorite band but they at least have accomplished something in their field.

    I’ve never heard of Veda Scott.

    • TheJrockfreak .

    • http://brendoman.com Brendan Creecy

      Oh so I guess it makes misogyny ok then. Keep it classy. Also you should look up Veda because she’s pretty awesome.

      • Louis

      • THAT guy

    • Heisenberg-IC Champ*ModHaters*

      I take it you’re not a fan of Ring Of Honor, You should check that out.

      • Louis

        I’ve watched ROH only a few times in my life. Way back in the day when CM Punk was there. Didn’t like it. The show looked very poor in terms of production; like it was produced by a high school AV club.

        • Jamalc

          The production quality hasn’t gotten any better, unfortunately.

  • wharfrat

    KOL started with very little and have made themselves an international success, their music is among the best , most of the bands now are crap, these guys are always great at every concert,they give it their all and the fans love them.nobody can asker for more,

  • THAT guy

    Veda is worthless and ugly as hell. Another liberal idiot seeking attention over nothing.

    • Ewj55

      Yes I’m sure the ladies adore you…such a charmer

  • http://www.discogs.com/ AdamShitwood

    Non issue. She was right with her reply, he smoked her back. Everyone needs to get over themselves and stop making non issues into issues.

  • Nickfab88

  • Michael Lynch
