I originally shared this in my stories & on Facebook, but I don’t want it to disappear. I want anyone who needs to see this to see it. Dear @altpress, Remember when over 15 girls shared their stories with you about this serial rapist? Because I do. I was one of them. Now you want to not only share HIS nonsense, but you want to put his name next to Jesus? No, just, no. It’s not okay. The alternative community has followed you for YEARS. I followed your stories so closely all through high school and watched my artist friends be featured by your magazine. To be contacted by you to share my story, in hopes that it wouldn’t keep happening to other girls, felt like a dream. Finally there was something I could do, considering I was told by law enforcement that there was nothing else I could hope for with no physical evidence. I never thought anyone would believe me or take this seriously, then there was your magazine asking us to share. He not only raped girls, probably more than anyone even knows about, he was a predator seeking out underage girls by using his position in the music industry to do so. He threatened you with a lawsuit and you backed down. I get it, who would want to be involved in that when you could just… not. That was your choice, a choice none of us had. We can’t just let it go and forget. I for one had hoped that you would at the very least stop featuring him. Guess I was wrong to hope that. He needs CANCELLED. Get him out of these kids’ faces who believe he’s a good person deserving of recognition. #cancelaustincarlile #austincarlile If you feel comfortable, please share this. Girls need to know what he’s capable of doing. He can’t hide from this forever and I can’t stand by anymore wondering if he’s out there doing this to anyone else.
In the Instagram post, Stiffler said that she was one of fifteen women to be sexually assaulted by Carlile. She also accused Alternative Press, a music magazine that has described itself as having a “female-led and lgbtq+ editorial staff”, of hiding the story:

Alternative Press has written about Carlile before, in stories that covered his life with Marfan syndrome and why he left the band Of Mice & Men.
Carlile himself has not yet responded publicly to any of the allegations. Carlile’s former bandmates have written a statement in which they did not name him but did say they “absolutely condemn sexual violence and harassment in any form.” They also said they had no part in suppressing any articles.
Caitlyn Stiffler’s husband Jonathan
Caitlyn Stiffler’s husband Jonathan described himself in a Twitter thread as “shocked” and “disgusted” that Alternative Press would give Carlile a platform without addressing any of the allegations that he said women told in “gruesome detail.”
A few years back, realizing the extent of the damage done, I organized a group of women (MANY) who had been raped or sexually assaulted by @austincarlile over the years to be interviewed by @AltPress. I knew him personally, I worked in the scene & I married one of his victims.

In response to the Stifflers’ accusations, Alternative Press said that it was prevented from running the story out of legal concerns.
