If you’ve been following along this week, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan was hit by allegations of rape by an anonymous Twitter user with the handle @IWas17HeWas36. The claim from the unidentified woman claims that she was sexually assaulted by Maynard back in 2000 when she was 17. Explosive stuff.
Maynard has responded on Twitter.
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.

Let’s see where this leads. Nothing yet from @IWas16HeWas36.
