Low End Theory Parts Ways with The Gaslamp Killer Amid Rape Allegations - TGK Responds

The recent saga that William Bensussen has found himself in seems to only get worse. Better known as The Gaslamp Killer, Bensussen has been in the scene for years. This past Thursday, however, a woman accused him of raping her and a friend in downtown LA in 2013.

Following the accusations, Low End Theory ended their longstanding relationship with Bensussen in just two short sentences. His performance at Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival was cancelled soon thereafter.

Then, Flying Lotus’ label Brainfeeder distanced themselves as well.

Following the massive drop in support, Bensussen made his own statement on the case.

The Gaslamp Killer hasn’t made the situation much better for himself since the initial tweet went out, especially by reaching out to one of his alleged victims.

These accusations are deeply saddening and disturbing, and we can only pray that this sheds light on the much needed protection of women in and around the music industry.
