Jack White is sticking up for his White Stripes cohort Meg White, after a tweet insulting Meg’s drumming went viral. It started with a comment from journalist Lachlan Markay, dismissing Meg White as a “terrible” drummer who held the band back. Jack White responded to the discourse with a poem, while other stars like Questlove defended her as well. Markay ended up deleting the original tweet and offering an apology. The White Stripes are among the 2023 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Why is there so much discourse over Meg White’s drumming? Are people extra critical because she’s a woman?
