“@ronnieradke this is Joe Ianelli owner of SelfMade Co. (pictured here standing next to a fallen Ianelli’s memorial). As someone who makes clothing that push limits and often offend people, I’m all for freedom of speech and expression. So I’d be a hypocrite in saying it’s wrong to express yourself. But I must say I don’t agree with making jokes about things that can hurt people, especially when it hits close to home. I know this won’t even matter to you but I must decline producing the selfmade co sponsored #FallingInReverse bus tent for you on @warpedtour. Not because you’ve made a joke about something that hits a soft spot to me someone that lived through that day in NY, but because kids look up to you and I feel that post you made crosses a line a “hero” should not be crossing. Anyway I’ll be sure to see you on#warpedtour, maybe me and a few of my buddies from back home in NY can take you over to the 9/11 memorial so you can see how funny it is.”
