Tommy Vext, the ex-singer for Bad Wolves, is making claims that he is struggling to find touring opportunities due to him being “canceled.”

In the past, Vext has made incredibly controversial comments about racism in America and about the George Floyd protests that took place during 2020, even going as far as to say that the protests were “a covert operation.” Vext was eventually let go from Bad Wolves, and since then, has gone on to work on other projects.

However, per a Facebook post he wrote up a few days ago, Vext is saying that the only other artist that seems to not be “afraid” of working with him is Aaron Lewis, and per Vext, he is struggling to book tours (believing it has to do with him being “canceled”).  Here is everything Vext had to say per that post of his:

“People are asking me when I’m going back on tour. This is my answer. I don’t know

I have submitted for several tours as opening act & have not landed anything yet. I’m currently in consideration to open for Aaron Lewis who seems to be the only artist not afraid to do shows with me out of fear of being cancelled by association.

“Every manager, label, press outlet are on a full frontal cancellation assault of me so I understand why people are worried. Why bother with the hassle? Why jeopardize there own standings ? This is the reality of what has been done for daring to disobey the corporate industry. You don’t see me crying about the millions of dollars I’ve lost. I just accept it and keep trying.

“So when y’all start bitching it doesn’t help an already negative situation. If you want to be proactive I suggest you join the Fb fan group & start finding venues and promoters in your local community that will have me. It’s that simple. I want to tour. I miss you guys. I love writing recording & performing but I cannot fight this system alone. If y’all care enough to complain then it’s time to get activated. I’m pissed too. I’m dead on 90k from last years vocal injury alone.

“Not to mention I still have to pay to record the new albums I’m in the studio doing right now on top of publishing my biography- so please get active and group up and let’s figure out a solution together.

“Does that sound like a good plan ?”

What do you make of Vext’s comments?
