Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace Bashes Arcade Fire
Last week, Arcade Fire released a much ballyhooed video for the song ‘We Exist.’ They dedicated it to “a young person’s struggle with gender identity,” and they featured ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ star Andrew Garfield in it.
He plays a guy who dresses like a woman, and dances in a seedy bar before ending up onstage with Arcade Fire during their Coachella set last month.
Dear @arcadefire , maybe when making a video for a song called "We Exist" you should get an actual "Trans" actor instead of Spider-Man?

Earlier this year, Against Me! released an album called ‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues’ that deals with the issue of transgender people. And a month ago, Arcade Fire got into another Twitter battle, with mask-wearing EDM star Deadmau5 who had a problem with the band’s opinion on live music vs. electronic music.
So it’s your move, Arcade Fire.
In the meantime, you can watch the ‘We Exist’ video below.
