It's not that Ross is untalented. Of course he is. It's what he chooses to do with his instrument most of the time. Look at Beach Ball or his playing on Pig in 2018. Tasteful, no squealing at all. But then more often than not, he'll be the loudest person on stage. I don't get it. My theory is his weight prevents him from maintaining proper pitch or whatever.

Yeah but he has hurt the band's sound no matter where his weight is on the fat rollercoaster.

All I said is he hurts the band's sound. If you think that's enough to make his social media private, then both of you need thicker skin.

Hey, I'm not making fun of him. I'm asking a legitimate question regarding his health and how it might affect how he performs his job. He's barely older than me. I wouldn't want to see him keel over while playing.

We've had this discussion quite a few times over the last few years regarding the band and their social media accounts. I would hope no one here is dick-ish enough to try and be contentious with any band member on social media. It's a selfish thing to do. Your tweet or DM or whatever is not going to all-of-a-sudden revert the band's sound back to what you hoped it would be. I'm not thrilled with the brass-heavy direction they've taken over the last 14 years but I'm not going to make a point to directly tell someone in the band they suck or rip on their personal appearance (that has nothing to do with what you were inquiring about Gweeps, I've seen a few hurtful messages directed at him a years ago regarding weight, clothes, etc...).

That's all you said and you said it here, but you are a reasonable human. Not all humans are, and worse people than you send him that stuff. It wasn't directly at you posting to Rashawn, but you also know that people do.

The bigger point here is that Rashawn is over sensitive. If you’re going to be famous and in the public spotlight, haters and people being negative towards you is part of the job. It’s inevitable. People are miserable with their own lives, jealous, etc and take it out on those more fortunate. Every celebrity goes through it and Rashawn is probably a C List at best. If you can’t handle the heat, don’t be in the kitchen, so they say. I don’t agree with those assholes and I think it’s really crappy to comment negative crap like that on social meda, but those types of people are never going away.

Imagine if Rashawn was president..he’d quit before Inauguration Day.

He has no obligation to interact with the fans. If he chooses only to converse with ones that are respectful to him and actually like his work, that seems like a smart and healthy thing to do.

It's better than shutting his accounts down completely, like Dave.

Usually the people who get worked about negative trolls are the people whose egos are the biggest though. Loving and acknowledging the cheers makes you vulnerable to the boos. He’s clearly not a humble guy at all, and I think that has a lot to do with why a lot of fans aren’t fond of him. The way he plays mixed with smug, entitled behavior.

That is a good point. And I do agree that he doesn't do the best job of endearing himself to the fans.

I donít care for Rossís playing, but I donít see what is wrong here. He isnít attacking people right? Just not interacting with people shitting on him. Seems fine to me.

Totally agree. I feel bad even asking the question as to why his IG is private.

Yep.

Love people who feel entitled to see his fucking Instagram calling him smug/entitled.
