Been waiting for Jimmy Havoc to get brought up. That shits true. He’s gross. He DM’d me around Christmas time this past year. Was over in the UK drunk and alone and guess decided to try shit with me. The messages were fine at first, polite.

I’ve had a few issues with Jimmy Havoc over the years, this was the first one back in 2014, after their Thunderbastard show, I regret not going to the police and I’m still annoyed by Progress’s response #SpeakingOut pic.twitter.com/dGGAIESOOx
