As BrooklynVegan points out, Farro's history of homophobia has been well-documented online. Most recently, some statements he made on Facebook were surfaced on Twitter:

While Williams didn't address any specific posts, she made it pretty clear where she stood on the subject in a pair of tweets posted shortly after:
and ya know, if that doesn't jive with you, well, feel free to go to where all past members of paramore have gone which is literally anywhere else but paramore.— hayley from Paramore 🌺 (@yelyahwilliams) October 28, 2020
to paramore's LGBTQ+ family (and @ColormeBrian i am talkin straight to you) you are full of love and you are loved.
Josh Farro parted ways with Paramore in 2010. The band's current lineup is Williams, Taylor York and Josh's brother Zac Farro.
