Greg Ginn, a founding member of Black Flag, has been accused of child abuse by his ex wife as she tries to become the sole conservator of their two daughters (aged 7 and 10).

The list of abuses includes withholding food, using alcohol and drugs in front of the girls, disciplining them by throwing cups of water in their faces, and many other behaviours. Their youngest child was taken to the hospital on October 7th due to the "stress and anxiety" created by his actions.

oh dear lord

Rock n Roll!

What the...

disciplining by throwing cups of water in their face? That's the worst child abuse this woman can come up with? Sounds like a bloody ridiculous charge if you ask me.

'What the...'
lel

Having just read the altpress article though, maybe not. Sounds like dude does some messed up things. Weird too.

Probably has a loose nut.

he seems to be bad with decisions lately damn

Ugh, fuck this guy.

"Their youngest child was taken to the hospital on October 7th due to the "stress and anxiety" created by his actions."

hard to fake this don't u think

i'll still wait for the court to decide but yea

Tbh subjecting us to that last album was pretty abusive.

I knew Greg Ginn was an asshole, but Jesus...

disciplining by throwing cups of water in their face? That's the worst child abuse this woman can come up with? Sounds like a bloody ridiculous charge if you ask me.

i like how you pick this out from smack dab in between "witholding food" and "abusing drugs" in front of them to call into question and mock the legitimacy of the abuse you fuck puddle

fuck puddle

anyone who's defending greg is a fucking moron.

yes

Tbh subjecting us to that last album was pretty abusive. [2]

Oh fucking ol' Greg...

"anyone who's defending greg is a fucking moron."

took the words right out of my mouth.

"if they voice their opinion, he will mock them and has been known to say 'shut the fuck up.'"

what a fucking un-punk thing to do greg

what a piece of shit

"The list of abuses includes withholding food, using alcohol and drugs in front of the girls, disciplining them by throwing cups of water in their faces, and many other behaviours"

This is considered abuse? Damn apparently I was abused like hell and I didn't even know it.

family man

Greg and Gin don't mix.

""not saying we shouldn't take these accusations seriously"

WE shouldn't take anything any way....lets the f*cking courts figure it out. Keep your dumbass opinions to yourself.

Hey I heard Lostprophets needs a new frontman

It still wouldn't be a funny joke even if the Thursday singer hadn't joined Lost Prophets a year ago.

"he seems to be bad with decisions lately damn"

(Video) Children say toddler's death was accident, plead to save mom from execution: "She's innocent"

so he's just a bad person then.

"This is considered abuse? Damn apparently I was abused like hell and I didn't even know it."

Yes

"According to the affidavit, Greg "behaved erratically and abusively and endangered the lives and emotional wellbeing of the children." The document claims that the children "have complained that his behavior has recently grown increasingly erratic, that he is routinely denying them food and threatening them, that he is increasingly abusing alcohol and drugs in front of them, and that they have witnessed confrontations and physical violence at the building where they live."

It goes on to claim that Greg "forced [the children] to do cleaning chores until 2 a.m.", "locked [them] in a room alone with no contact with the outside world through cell phone or emails," and that he has "throw[n] cups of water in their face." It says that "the children have seen him drink and do drugs, including marijuana, on a daily basis."

According to the document, Greg has told his daughters "you're hot" and "whistled at them," and told them "they are getting fat and need to lose weight and that their diets will have to be more strenuous.""

Holy fuck. The parts that don't sound like abuse (doing drugs and fighting in front of them) are definitely really, really irresponsible and indicative of bad parenting. That last part is just fucking creepy.

Ooh, and there's this from back in March! What a cock.

(strong, reactionary opinion)

hes always been a douche anyways he even never paid other members of black flag (not even rollins)

Good job bumping this my man.

So what was the court ruling

Their youngest child was taken to the hospital on October 7th due to the "stress and anxiety" created by his actions.

conservatives be like, "lmao this bitch needed a safe space just because her daddy hurt her feelings?"

Thowing cups of water in their face lmao

it's like waterboarding for kids and trump thinks it's not torture so you're probably right

If this article had been posted in 2020 it would have about a thousand more posts

And I would have loved it

"The parts that don't sound like abuse (doing drugs and fighting in front of them)"

Nah, man. That's still very abusive and traumatizing, however indirect. But here, I'm like other people were in the Kozelek thread. Greg Ginn has been a piece of shit for a long long time. He just played guitar good.

lmao While I doubt it'll do as much harm as everything else, the water in the face has to be a big "WTF" moment. Like I wouldn't necessarily call it abuse if my mom or dad did that to me rn but I would be like "WHY??? That's not okay." He sounds like a terrorist in his own home.

Black flag? More like Black Eye
hope that child is ok now

I'd fight my pops if he did threw a cup of water in my face as a grown man. it's a messed up way of disciplining a kid

"This is considered abuse? Damn apparently I was abused like hell and I didn't even know it."

u werent sure if withholding food was child abuse?

I was gonna say, wasn't this known already???

Greg Ginn is a piece of shit sell out.
It's sad to see how many people get fooled into seeing his zombie of a band desecrate the legacy of one of the forerunners of hardcore

"I'd fight my pops if he did threw a cup of water in my face as a grown man. it's a messed up way of disciplining a kid"

Not wrong.

"Greg Ginn is a piece of shit sell out."

Whole ass. If anyone needs proof, just read about the Black Flag rights disputes. It's damn pitiful how he's dragging around the corpse of a band that hasn't been special since '84.

Jello is still great!

True. Jello is as Jello as ever. The Dead Kennedys though? lmao They aren't The Kennedys without him.

Greg Ginn's Black Flag is a garbage led by a piece of shit

Dead Kennedy without Jello is just.... it's just a little bit sad innit

Yeah it is a bit rough considering Greg Ginn has always been an influential force within the band. While I'm not surprised that someone from Black Flag is like this, it makes sense why he's all around reviled within the punk community.

Greg Ginn more like greg bad father
