Metal fan denied AirBNB for musical taste

While metal has grown in popularity in recent years to a critical level, unfortunately some of the stigmas of metalheads as violent degenerates persist. This was fully displayed recently when an AirBNB host canceled a booked reservation after learning of his future guest’s penchant for heavy music.

Kayleigh, a fan of Death Blooms, decided to take a road trip to attend their show in Bristol, England on September 21 and did what the responsible people do: Book a place to stay so that she doesn’t have to take a trip home late at night. When the host asked what was bringing Kayleigh to town, she replied “A little band called Death Blooms playing The Exchange”, and that’s when the host came to see her and canceled the show. reservation.

“I’m afraid I’m not comfortable with this,” the host began, as shown in a screenshot shared by the group. The host went on to say that Kayleigh had no previous stays and had not commented on her conduct as a guest on her AirBNB profile, “So all I have to do is nature of the band you see. I find their music aggressive, swear-riddled and disturbing. Therefore, I prefer to refuse your visit.

Death Blooms tagged AirBNB in ​​a Twitter share with screenshots of the exchange, and the rental department responded that it would “take a closer look,” asking for more information.

We’ll surely keep you posted if we have any news on how it’s going, but for now Death Blooms has a new album coming up – Life is pain, due Oct 22 – and the following scheduled tour dates … that is, if you can find a place to stay nearby without being canceled on:
