Neko Case Shuts Down MTV After Sexist Tweet

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Here's another example of why you shouldn't mess with Neko Case. The official Playboy Dot Com Twitter page mentioned Case to  Tim Grierson's album review. The tweet referred Case "is breaking the mold of what women in the music industry should be."

Thanks to Carly G Marie, here's a screen grab of their conversation:

Unfortunately, the review wasn't any better: 
For women, it’s more bankable to be alluring—whether that comes in the form of the confident straight shooter (Beyoncé), the girlie pinup (Katy Perry) or the coquettish ingenue (Taylor Swift)—or to reject outright such conventions and be a hell-hath-no-fury flamethrower (Fiona Apple).
