Morgan Rutledge, frontwoman of Atlanta metallic hardcore band Revenge Season, is under fire after racist text messages attributed to her surfaced online.

The controversy apparently started when an ex-bandmate shared screenshots featuring the racist verbiage. The screenshots were seemingly taken months ago, which has both of them under fire.


For her part, Rutledge is reportedly blaming the messages on someone else:

Regardless, the band has subsequently been removed from their upcoming tour dates with Old Wounds, who said they have "zero tolerance for that shit."



Meanwhile, Revenge Season has also been booted from this weekend's LDB Fest in Louisville, KY.



Finally, record label Safe Inside Records has announced that they will no longer be working with the band.



UPDATE: Revenge Season vocalist Morgan Rutledge has issued an apology, and the band has called it quits.
