A Day To Remember Josh Woodward Accused of Sexual Assault
A Day To Remember bassist Josh Woodard has been accused of sexual assault after a series of tweets resurfaced, detailing sexual assault of a minor at 16 years of age.

One tweet that has since been deleted (but not before being screen captured) shared that Woodard invited a teen to an after-party, knowing her age (16 at the time), and Woodard asked the tour manager to keep her best friend company, and then she was brought into another area in which she and Woodard had sex.
The accusations are coming from the 2011-2012 timeline, according to the accompanying tweet, but many have not heard about it until now. As time goes on, more and more sexual assault allegations are coming to light, and the music industry is no exception to the ugly unveiling.
Users on social media platforms like TikTok are policing and spreading the word in the comments when someone uses a song from ADTR, letting them know of the allegations. One user informed us via TikTok that there were multiple allegations, but we, however, could only find the tweet above, with accompanying tweets informing others of that specific injustice, and tagging ADTR in hopes they will respond. Not that one tweet or accusation isn’t enough, but since the original tweet has now been deleted, it’s hard to track further accusations as they arise.
While searching through Twitter for more potential accusations, older tweets show that this may not be the first time that Woodard has been accused of bad behavior.
remember when Josh Woodard of ADTR was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend at Warped? I still wonder if that's legit.

We will keep you informed as more information comes to light or if more accusations are released. A Day To Remember fans are tweeting and begging someone from ADTR to respond, release a statement, or to hear if Woodard will be dropped from the band.
As of right now, the band has not tweeted or posted to Instagram since June 8th.
Love to see the ADTR members posting normal stuff on social media today like they haven’t all been SILENT for 10 days after the rape allegations.
Super cool guys. Super cool.

people jumping through hoops to defend josh woodard is so sad. apparently he's BEEN doing shit like this and i had no idea. and the rest of ADTR have to be covering for him because that's their boy. this fucking sucks

If ADTR are taking a few days to find out the truth and then part ways with their bassist then I'll give them somewhat the benefit of the doubt but if they're staying quiet in panic and waiting for shit to die down about the allegations then that's absolutely disgusting

diehard fan of ADTR and since those allegations came out against Josh & the bands been silent about it since. I’ve stopped associating myself with them, why? Because we believe women and are holding them accountable no matter how much I loved them.

Hey @adtr you know what would be cool?
If y’all made a statement about the allegations against you guys so that way fans can decide on if we want to continue to support you or not. Radio silence isn’t cool.

just found out jeremy from ADTR blocked somebody for asking about the allegations against josh. my heart is broken. that man is my hero. this sucks. this really fucking sucks.

Officially done with adtr & all of its members. Unfollowed everyone in the band on all socials. They’ve had more than enough time to make some kind of statement and they’ve chosen to ignore the allegations instead. Pathetic and disgusting
