Maynard James Keenan (Tool) Accused of Rape

UPDATE 20:39 CET: A previous version of this article incorrectly used the term ‘sexual misconduct’ in the headline. This has been amended.  

Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan has been accused of rape by multiple women.

In an anonymous Twitter thread started by one alleged victim, Keenan is claimed to have selected fans out of the crowd during the early 2000s before committing acts of sexual misconduct and – in some cases – rape. The entire thread describes the victim’s account in great detail, with a separate Reddit topic further featuring multiple recounts of similar events which back up the initial Twitter thread.

The Twitter thread goes to great lengths over the course of twenty messages, and below we’ve inserted a handful of key quotes. You can read the full thread here.

The aforementioned Reddit topic also features a handful of users recounting their experiences with Maynard James Keenan’s “proclivity for hooking up” with girls. Below are a number of excerpts from that thread, which you can read in its entirety here.

Neither Maynard James Keenan or his management have responded to these allegations.
