Maynard James Keenan Calls Rape Accusations "Despicable"

Maynard James Keenan Calls Rape Accusations 'Despicable'
Late last week, an anonymous Twitter user accused Tool/A Perfect Circle/Puscifer vocalist Maynard James Keenan of raping her at an A Perfect Circle/Nine Inch Nails performance in the year 2000. In the wake of the claims gaining traction in forums and online publications, Keenan has now shared a statement regarding the allegations.

Taking to Twitter today, Keenan wrote, "Many thanks to those of you who saw right through this despicable false claim that only does damage to the #metoo movement. And shame on those of you who perpetuate this destructive clickbait. As for my delayed but un-required response, I had my phone off. You should try it."

None of the accusations have been proven in any court of law and no criminal charges have been laid.
