Iron Reagan Fire Bassist Robert Skotis In The Wake Of Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct Made Against Him

Iron Reagan announce they have fired their bassist Robert Skotis after allegations of sexual misconduct/predatory behavior emerged online via Twitter. A restaurant/bar business consortium he had an ownership stake in parted ways with him as well and terminated his employment.

Iron Reagan issued the below statement on said matter:

“Effectively immediately Robert Skotis is no longer an active member of Iron Reagan. We apologize for our delayed response to the allegations against him and hope we haven’t caused any further harm by not responding until now. We do not condone predatory behavior and would not knowingly associate ourselves with someone we felt was a threat or a danger to anyone.

We encourage Rob to make a public statement to clarify this situation to us and the rest of the world.”

Skotis for his part, issued the below statement on the matter:

“Dearest friends,

As some of you know, I have recently been blindsided by a baseless attack from an anonymous twitter account. This is a nameless and faceless account, whose sole purpose is to smear local RVA business owners.

Unfortunately, this slanderous accusation has created enough noise to cause me to be alienated from my beloved restaurant, and compelled me to at least temporarily step back from my role in Iron Reagan.

This entire episode has been unspeakably painful and confusing. The one thing I can say with absolute certainty is that no part of this allegation is true.

I strongly encourage everybody to consider the source of these fabrications and ask that you do not rush to judgement. Thank you friends and family, for continuing to support me through this difficult time.

Love Rob“
