Noname announced on Twitter today that she will be replacing the cover art for her Room 25 album because Chicago artist Bryant Giles was arrested for domestic battery on October 8th. The best friend of victim Ellie Danisch posted the police report to social media. Shea Vaughn-Gabor also stated in her post that Giles is a rapist. Noname made it clear that she will not support abusers and she fully supports all victims of domestic violence.
In light of recent allegations, I will be working to replace the cover artwork of Room 25. I do not and will not support abusers, and I will always stand up for victims and believe their stories. My heart goes out to Ellie, her family, and all survivors of abuse.
