Arrow de Wilde, lead singer of the rock band Starcrawler , has come forward with sexual misconduct allegations regarding the Growlers. In a statement posted on Instagram yesterday July 30 , de Wilde wrote about an incident that she said occurred in January while her band was on tour with the Growlers in Australia. According to the statement, the Growlers paid for a male stripper, who de Wilde said assaulted her in a locked backstage room. She said the Growlers stood around her, filmed the incident, and laughed while she made repeated attempts to remove herself from the situation. Soon after he bursts into the room, he rips off his uniform and music starts playing. I swear it went on for almost ten minutes. Every time I tried to get up he pushed me back down. It started to feel more and more degrading as each layer of clothing peeled off his body, the Growlers just continued to laugh and film the whole thing. Soon he was down to a speedo and I knew where it was headed.
