In the latest juvenile attack on Elizabeth Le Fey, the artist behind Globelamp, a Wikipedia user modified Globelamp’s page with a crude reference to Le Fey’s abusive ex-boyfriend and Foxygen member Sam France.

Le Fey has publicly spoken out about her past abusive relationship with France, and despite losing in court and gaining a restraining order against her, she has continued to face a bounty of attacks, presumably from fans of Foxygen. The artist was concerned to find her Wikipedia page had been edited to describe her in misogynistic terms.

While the edit has since been reverted, it was a sobering reminder of the relentless bullying some women have faced for being outspoken against unfair treatment and abuse in the music industry.
