Architects have spoken out on the band’s political views after guitarist Adam Christianson shared a controversial post on social media.
As Loudwire reports, Christianson recently faced backlash by retweeting a transphobic and homophobic post from an account on X/Twitter.
Filmed at a press conference in Toronto, Canada, the clip sees MMA Fighting reporter Alexander Lee ask Strickland about a homophonic comment he made on social media in early 2022.
The tweet in question read: “If I had a gay son I would think I failed as a man to create such weakness.”
Lee mentioned Toronto’s gay and lesbian community before Strickland jumped in and asked: “Are you gay?” The reporter responded by saying he was “an ally of the community”.
Strickland then doubled down on his past remarks, asking Lee if he would be OK with having a gay son. After the latter said he’d have “no problem” with this, the MMA pro called him “a weak fucking man”.
HOLY FUCK 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Fucking A+ guy right here
Thanks bud light for bringing us this message on the infection that is the woke left https://t.co/G17Drog39b

He continued: “You’re part of the fucking problem. You elected Justin Trudeau when he seized the bank accounts. You’re just fucking pathetic […] Go fuck yourself! Move the fuck on, man. Fucking coward!”
Later, Lee referred to comments Strickland had made about the trans community. “10 years ago, to be trans was a mental fucking illness,” the fighter replied.
“And now, all of a sudden, people like you have fucking weaseled your way in the world. You are an infection. You are the definition of weakness. Everything that is wrong with the world is because of fucking you.”
Pool subsequently reposted the footage on X, calling Strickland a “fucking A+ guy” and hitting out at “the infection that is the woke left”. It was this message that Christianson reshared on his feed, but it has since been removed.
The musician later posted an apology, which read: “Shit! That retweet was a total accident!! I don’t endorse anything that guy says other than fuck Trudeau. Sorry for the panic everyone! Complete all-thumbs moment.”

Some Architects fans have been discussing the incident online, with many saying they’re unconvinced that Christianson’s post was unintentional.
Last night (January 24), vocalist Sam Carter addressed the controversial post during Architects’ live show in Paris. “No one on this stage judges anybody for their gender, their race, and whoever they are in love with,” he told the crowd.
“We never have. We never will. That is not what this band stands for, and it is not what this band will ever stand for. We love every single one of you.”

“These people are fascists. Which is to say: they want to dominate every facet of society and reduce women to the role of male property,” Russell wrote.
“But we shouldn’t censor them, it’s better that they go public with their abhorrent views so we can laugh at their stupidity and choose progress.”
The group are currently on tour in Europe ahead of a run of North American headline dates in the spring.
