I'm sorry dude, I don't know where you are pasting this from but this is complete utter bullshit, made-up stuff to suit someone else's agendas. Paramore and more precisely, Hailey Williams did not retire the song because " a bunch of virtue-signalling snowflake tosspots" put pressure on her or whatever. She did it because she wanted and because she's grown up now and she's a feminist and understands the harm those words do on people and how bad is to have a song perpetuating stereotypes, especially among teenagers and young people.
So here's the truth of Hailey Willliams and her 'Misery Business': “Tonight we’re playing this song for the last time for a really long time.
This is a choice that we’ve made because we feel that we should.
We feel like it’s time to move away from it for a little.”
She wrote on a blog post in her TumblR:
It’s rare to see an artist do this. Without taking aim at any particular bands, imagine how mute most pop punk singers would have to be on stage were they to adopt the same approach. Clearly, there’s something of an understanding between bands, fans, and the media, that artists aren’t always going to portray their best selves in their lyrical content. Williams didn’t have to address this issue head on, but it’s clear that being able to confront these things is an important part of her personal growth.
“I do like to know at the end of the day that I tried to do the right thing,” Williams says. “And who knows, maybe that’s all in vain? My path was my own – there are no two the same. For whatever reason, I believe I was supposed to have written those backwards words and I was supposed to learn something from them… years later. It’s made me more compassionate toward other women, who maybe have social anxieties… and toward younger girls who are at this very moment learning to cope and to relate and to connect. We’re all just trying our damnedest. It’s a lot easier when we have support and community with each other. Vulnerability helps lay the foundation for all that.”
Hayley Williams is honest and very brave as an artist to pull off probably one of their biggest hits. She's got 'the balls' some men don't have.
