UPDATE: D’arcy Wretzky has confirmed to Alternative Nation that it is indeed her who left these comments.
A few days ago, Alternative Nation published an article titled ‘How D’arcy Wretzky Could Still Join Smashing Pumpkins Reunion.’ We wrote the article after photos leaked revealing Smashing Pumpkins’ reunion lineup as being Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, and Jeff Schroeder. The band are expected to announce a tour on February 15th.
The article received comments by a user named Fey Wutt. In the article, Alternative Nation posed the idea of having D’arcy perform as a special guest on the reunion tour as a way to include her after news had broken of her exclusion.
A fan named IrregularJohn first commented on the article, “Not a dig against D’arcy but [Steven] Adler was way more instrumental to what was GNR sound than what D’arcy was to Pumpkins.”
Fey Wutt responded, “Because you were there– so YOU KNOW! ?”
Wutt added, “… and why would she do that after having been offered ‘millions of $$$’ to play on a WHOLE TOUR that SHE WANTED TO DO and had SAID SHE WOULD DO? … only to have Billy change his mind AFTERWARDS because HE IS TOO INSECURE.”
“your article already sounds as if you’ve spoken to Billy directly …… albeit several weeks ago.”
Fey Wutt also attempted to comment an image that did not correctly upload.
Smashing Pumpkins fans have pointed out that ‘Fey Wutt’ is an alias that D’arcy Wretzky has used online over the years. We later confirmed with D’arcy that she indeed left the comments.
Fey Wutt linked to a December 2017 ’10 Reasons Smashing Pumpkins Will Reunite In 2018′ Alternative Nation article on on January 19th on Google Plus/social media by saying, “I truly hope you’re right, but it’s looking pretty grim at this point.” This was two days before her Blast Echo interview on January 21st.
The Fey Wutt Facebook account also posted something very similar to Wretzky’s post from her primary Facebook account after she claimed she was hacked following an interview with Blast Echo being published where she revealed that she was ‘disappointed’ to learn she would not be part of the Smashing Pumpkins reunion.
Fey Wutt wrote, “My fb accounts and possibly more have been hacked. That post was not me.”
On the same day D’arcy posted on her primary Facebook account, “I haven’t been on FB since- oh! i’m pretty sure i know who did this.me crazy somewone IS hacking my phone&/or fb account.”
We would love to hear D’arcy side of the story as to why she isn’t involved in Smashing Pumpkins’ reunion. We’d love to hear Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin’s point of view as well whenever they choose to tell their story on social media.
