Here’s a music conspiracy that may be new to you: Trump supporters “silenced” Chester Bennington

Chester Bennington’s 2017 suicide sent ripples throughout pop culture. We’re still feeling it. It was well known that Chester had all sorts of mental health issues that ebbed and flowed for years. In the end, he felt there was only one way out. It’s as simple (and as complicated) as that.
