"B-b-but we spell it with a 'z'."

Posted on

Australian rockers Cuntz have had to cancel one of their American shows because of their "offensive" name.

Touring the U.S to promote their album Force the Zone, the band had their gig at Seattle's Victory Lounge cancelled and have had to move to a different venue.

Touring the U.S to promote their album Force the Zone, the band had their gig at Seattle's Victory Lounge cancelled and have had to move to a different venue.

The promoter of the DASWASUP GIG the band were set to play allegedly wrote an explanation on a Facebook event, before it was deleted earlier today.

"YO. HERE'S WHAT'S UP," he said."It's not up to me to decide what is and isn't offensive to folks, but I do feel like it's my responsibly to listen to the voices of my friends, peers and fellow musicians who have been upset by me booking a band called Cuntz. I decide to stand with my lady friends and feminist friends on this issue.""This show is CANCELLED and this Facebook event will self destruct in 12-24 hours. If you want to see Cuntz play on 10/13, they will be a Lucky Liquor but DASWASUPGIG and me (C.J.) have absolutely nothing to do with it and I will not be there.""Apologies to folks who have been hurt and/or offended by this show. This is NOT the kind of thing I want DASWASUPGIG to represent and I admit to having rolled the dice when I should have just said 'no thanks.'"

Nicole Erin Yalaz, who handles Cuntz for Strange Victory Touring, posted on her Facebook to express her disappointment.

Really though, one disgruntled fan explained how a band called "Cuntz" could come to be in Australia - and it's pretty spot on.
