‘Mumford & Sons’ Member Forced To Take Hiatus After Major Backlash Following Support For Author Exposing Antifa

Winston Marshall, Mumford & Sons guitarist and banjo player apologized for supporting Andy Ngo and his new book that exposes the far-left Antifa movement.

“Over the past few days I have come to better understand the pain caused by the book I endorsed,” Winston Marshall said on Twitter.

“I have offended not only a lot of people I don’t know, but also those closest to me, including my bandmates and for that I am truly sorry. As a result of my actions I am taking time away from the band to examine my blindspots.”

“For now, please know that I realise how my endorsements have the potential to be viewed as approvals of hateful, divisive behaviour. I apologise, as this was not at all my intention,” the guitarist said.

“Congratulations @MrAndyNgo. Finally had the time to read your important book. You’re a brave man,” Marshall’s post originally read.

“I grieve for those who are made to suffer because they dare to read my work, or talk to me,” Ngo wrote. “The danger of Antifa & their allies is not only their willingness to carry out or support maiming, killing & terrorism—but also how they close curious minds from independent thought.”

Antifa is suspected of several acts of violence from arson to attacks on law enforcement and rioting from Portland to New York.
