‘F***ing P***y’: Pearl Jam’s Lead Singer Paused Concert To Slam Harrison Butker

Pearl Jam’s lead singer Eddie Vedder paused his band’s concert in Las Vegas over the weekend to slam Kansas City Chiefs player Harrison Butker following the kicker’s commencement speech that caused a leftist meltdown.

During the band’s show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Vedder recognized the female singer and keyboard player from the band that played before him and said they “must not have believed that ‘diabolical lie’ that women should take pride in taking a back seat to their man.”

His comments twisted what Butker said to the graduates at Benedictine College when he praised his wife for being a “homemaker,” called out President Joe Biden’s support for abortion, and criticized LGBTQ “Pride month.”

“There should be pride in homemaking whether you’re a man or a woman … it’s maybe one of the hardest jobs and you should definitely take pride in it,” Vedder said to the crowd. “But you shouldn’t not follow a dream because you think that is the more, that you are going to benefit by giving up your dreams.”

“I couldn’t understand the logic, so I’m questioning it in public right now. It’s not a graduation speech,” he added. “The irony was that the football player [Butker]kicker … You see the kicker doesn’t have the pads because he doesn’t tackle anybody or get tackled — but he started telling men, ‘Don’t forget to puff up your chest and be more masculine. Don’t lose your masculinity.’”

“The irony was that when he was saying that, he looked like such a f***ing p***y,” the frontman continued. “There’s nothing more masculine than a strong man supporting a strong woman. And people of quality do not fear equality.”

During Butker’s speech at the Catholic college, the Chiefs player said his wife would agree that her life “truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career? Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world. But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” he added.

“It cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker,” Butker continued.

His comments drew backlash online, with critics branding him as misogynistic and more.

A Change.org petition calling for the three-time Super Bowl champion to be kicked off the Chiefs team for his “discriminatory” remarks has amassed more than 220,000 signatures.
