Thy Art Is Murder have made a post on social media saying they're "setting the record straight" regarding their support for transgender rights after CJ McMahon, Thy Art Is Murder's lead vocalist, reportedly shared anti-trans content on Instagram along with his support for it.

The image in Thy Art Is Murder's Instagram response Wednesday (Aug. 23) displays the transgender flag. The accompanying text reads, "Setting the record straight, we stand with you." It is also appended by the emoji for the transgender flag.

Days earlier, McMahon had seemingly deactivated or deleted his Instagram after facing online backlash for his apparent anti-trans message.
