Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan Called Out By Every Time I Die & Stick To Your Guns Members After Posting Image Allegedly Mocking The Black Lives Matter Movement

Norma Jean frontman Cory Brandan drew the ire of Every Time I Die bassist Steve Micciche, Stick To Your Guns frontman Jesse Barnett and more yesterday, June 02nd. Brandan took to social media to share the below since-deleted tweet along with an image that seemingly mocks a gif similar to that of one created for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Others took to calling out Brandan for his alleged political views:

One fan also tried to defend Brandan‘s behavior to Micciche:

It is worth noting that a few former members of Norma Jean have went on to join Every Time I Die, including current Every Time I Die drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak and his predecessor Daniel Davison. That aside, hours prior to tweeting the controversial image, Brandan explained his position on the George Floyd killing as such:
