Earlier today the older sister of Krewella, Jahan Yousaf, unleashed a loaded an op-ed piece for Billboard defending herself and her sister Yasmine, dissecting the lawsuit with their ex-bandmate Kris Trindle, and most importantly, tackling “sex, media and humanity.”

She talks gender equality, cyber bullying. She urges everyone to do their research, not take majority opinion instantly, to think on your own. She even reminds everyone that her and Kris, they dated from 2006-2011.

Krewella Responds To Kris Trindl’s Lawsuit | “Say Goodbye

Jahan brings up all the negative backlash, the name calling, the crazy amounts of times “whore” and “Krewella” were used in the same sentence. Some went even further.

“Some of you told us to pursue a career in porn as we had failed at Krewella. Despite my penis being a little camera-shy, I was about to consider it. But then superstar DJ deadmau5 seemed to take an interest in us, and now I think a career in music will work out. Thank you, deadmau5, for saving me from doing porn.”

“I have been silent for too long. I am relapsing after avoiding social media to share what I have learned and to encourage people to challenge and question what they read/hear/see from now on, and that goes for situations beyond our case, whether it’s politics or celebrity gossip. The sad part is that it is 2014, and people are still passively reading headlines for face value, parroting the words of celebrities, and jumping on the bandwagon of popular opinion. I don’t see enough people challenging the intolerance that deadmau5 preaches to his 3 million followers, researching beyond the headlines they read, or protesting against the derogatory dialogue that circulates on social networks.”
